Actor Cameron Boyce, best known for his roles in Disney Channel’s The Descendants and Jessie, died Saturday. He was 20.
In a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, a rep for Boyce’s family said Sunday that he died due to an “ongoing medical condition.”
“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,” the spokesperson said, revealing that the young star had “passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated.
“The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him,” the statement continued. “We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”
