Adam Sandler breaks silence on Cameron Boyce’s death with tribute

Adam Sandler has paid tribute to his Grown Ups co-star Cameron Boyce who died suddenly at the age of 20.

It was announced that Cameron died on Saturday in his sleep due to an ‘ongoing medical condition’, the Disney star’s reps confirmed.

Cameron had starred alongside Adam, 52, in the 2010 comedy Grown Ups and played the comedian’s son, Keithie, before reprising the role for the sequel Grown Ups 2 in 2013.

Alongside a black and white photo of Cameron, Adam said in his heartfelt Instagram post: ‘Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around. Loved that kid.’

Adam went on to applaud Cameron’s philanthropy, which included launching a campaign with Thirst Project in 2018 to build two wells of clean water in Swaziland, which raised more than $27,000.

In his tribute, Adam continued: ‘Cared so much about his family. Cared so much about the world.’

‘Thank you, Cameron, for all you gave to us. So much more was on the way. All our hearts are broken. Thinking of your amazing family and sending our deepest condolences.‬’

Cameron rose to prominence with his roles in Disney’s Jessie before going on to become a household name in Descendants as Carlos, the son of legendary villain Cruella de Vil.

Remembering their late star, Disney said in a statement: ‘From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world. As a young man, he was fueled by a strong desire to make a difference in peoples’ lives through his humanitarian work.

‘He was an incredibly talented performer, a remarkably caring and thoughtful person and, above all else, he was a loving and dedicated son, brother, grandson and friend.

‘We offer our deepest condolences to his family, cast mates and colleagues and join his many millions of fans in grieving his untimely passing. He will be dearly missed.’

A rep for Cameron confirmed that he died in his sleep following a seizure and had been receiving treatment for his medical condition.
