Here’s how ‘Paradise City’ plans to honor Cameron Boyce’s legacy
It's been nearly two years since the American Satan spinoff series Paradise City was announced and last week it was revealed that the series' first official trailer arrives on May 1. Now, more information on the series' leading star Cameron Boyce who tragically passed away last year has been released.
In the series' first season, Cameron Boyce plays Simon Ostergaard, the frontman of the band The Flux. Information about Boyce's final character was first announced on the series' Instagram in December.
Today, the show further revealed that Boyce's character, Simon Ostergaard, is a "young musician, bandleader and aspiring DIY executive in the music business."
Paradise City also shared today it is donating a portion of the show's profits to the Cameron Boyce Foundation. The foundation supports causes Boyce was passionate about including "spreading kindness, ending gun violence, clean water" and more.
"Cameron Boyce stars as a leading character “Simon” in all eight episodes of the first season of Paradise City. The series was filmed just months before his tragic passing. He gave us an incredible performance as a young musician, band leader and aspiring DIY executive in the music business. Cameron was a truly one of a kind spectacular talent. ❤️?? We will be donating a portion of the tv show’s profits to @thecameronboycefoundation #cameronboyce #paradisecityshow"
Alongside Boyce, Bella Thorne and Asking Alexandria's James Cassells are joining the spinoff. Thorne plays Lily Mayflower in the band the Relentless with Cassells' character Dylan James. Cassells announced his Paradise City role on his Instagram yesterday.
"May 1st @paradisecity teaser drops. Had a blast playing Dylan can’t wait for you all to see this series"
As well, American Satan stars Andy Biersack of Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce and Twilight's Boo Boo Stewart are reprising their roles. This past December, the show shared the news on its Instagram page.
Former pro-wrestler Natalie Eva Marie is also a new addition to Paradise City. Bruce and Biersack's characters are among the members of the Relentless. In American Satan, Biersack’s vocals came from Palaye Royale frontman Remington Leith.
