For those of you who are unfamiliar with the late Cameron Boyce, let me provide you with some context. As told by ABC News, the actor passed away in July 2019 after suffering from a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition. Boyce was just 20 years old at the time of his death.
Boyce was known for his role as Luke Ross in the Disney Channel show Jessie, as well as his performance as Carlos in the Descendants film series. He also appeared alongside Adam Sandler in Grown Ups and its sequel Grown Ups 2.
As reported by Pirates & Princesses, Boyce was actually slated to star in Adam Sandler’s upcoming movie Hubie Halloween. Sandler has dedicated the Halloween flick to the late actor and he recently spoke to Jimmy Fallon about how much he admired Cameron.
Sandler told Fallon about just how kind, talented, and generous Cameron was. Sandler specifically mentioned that Cameron was extremely dedicated to doing charity work. It sounds like Sandler really admired the young thespian.
