Cameron Boyce was best known for his roles in Disney’s franchise the Descendants and TV series, Jessie. He had also been cast in HBO’s Mrs. Fletcher. In addition, Boyce also made an appearance in Panic! At The Disco’s “That Green Gentleman” music video.

He passed away at just 20 years “due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated,” a spokesperson’s statement read. Boyce’s parents later revealed that the “ongoing condition” was epilepsy. 

The Cameron Boyce Foundation was established shortly thereafter and aims to end gun violence, cure epilepsy and provide clean water around the world. One of Boyce’s final projects before his untimely death was Wielding Peace. This social media campaign seeks “to help fight gun violence by showing celebrities, survivors, and supporters ‘wielding’ a new kind of weapon… one of unity.”
