Cameron Boyce, best known for his roles in the Disney Channel’s “Descendants” and the TV show “Jessie,” has died. He was 20 years old.

Boyce’s cause of death was revealed as only “an ongoing medical condition.”

A family spokesperson said in a statement: “It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron. He 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.”

“We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”

In 2015, Boyce was a member of the main cast of Disney’s Descendants, playing Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil. He later reprised the character for the animated shorts Descendants: Wicked World and in the 2017 sequel Descendants 2. In March 2018, Boyce was cast in the ABC comedy television pilot Steps, in the role of Becker. In January 2019, Boyce joined the cast of HBO’s ‘Mrs. Fletcher.’
