Like many others, American actor and comedian, Adam Sandler, takes to social media to express grief over Cameron Boyce’s death.


It came as a shock to everyone when news of Cameron Boyce’s death was made public.


A spokesperson for Cameron's family confirmed the heartbreaking news with the message:

"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."

According to the family’s spokesperson, Cameron suffered a seizure in his sleep and died from it; the seizure was reportedly brought about by a medical condition he was being treated for.


Cameron achieved fame at the young age of nine when he was featured in “Mirrors”, his popularity grew when he began to play the role of “Luke Ross” on the Walt Disney TV show "Jessie,” and it multiplied when he played the role of "Carlos de Vil” in “Descendants”.

The role of “Luke Ross” was initially intended to be a boy named Hiro who was adopted from Korea; however, the directors were dazzled with Cameron’s performance during the audition, after which they decided to recreate the role specifically for him.


A short while after news of Cameron’s death went public, famous American actor Adam Sandler, who once co-starred with him, took to Twitter to share his grief:

"Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around. Loved that kid.”

His bond with Adam Sandler came into existence when he played the role of “Keithie Feder,” the son of a character named “Lenny” played by Adam Sandler in the “Grown Ups” movie franchise.


In a bid to comfort the family he left behind, Sandler added:

“All our hearts are broken. Thinking of your amazing family and sending our deepest condolences.”

Skai Jackson, Cameron’s castmate on “The Descendants” also took to Instagram on Sunday to post a series of photos which featured her with Cameron at different times in their lives.


In her lengthy caption, Skai spoke about the suddenness of Cameron’s death and how she could never have expected it. A grim Skai further admitted that she would forever remain heartbroken over his demise and also referred to him as “a brother she never had.”

She then went ahead to describe how the tragic news made her feel, admitting that she was “distraught” and could not stop her tears.

“I love you so much... fly high, God”s best angel," she finished.

Rest in Peace, Cameron.
