An autopsy confirmed 20-year-old Cameron Boyce’s death was the result of “sudden unexpected death in epilepsy,” the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said Tuesday.
His family had earlier said the Disney star suffered from an ongoing medical condition.
An autopsy report released Tuesday states the “Descendants” star was found unresponsive at home on July 6, and later pronounced dead at the scene.
The coroner’s findings are consistent with his family’s previous statement, which attributed his death to a seizure from epilepsy. “Cameron’s tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy,” the statement, issued a few days after his death, read.
Boyce was best known for his roles on Disney Channel series “Jesse” from 2011 to 2015, and the three “Descendants” movies as Carlos de Vil, the son of Cruella de Vil. He’s set to appear in the upcoming third movie in the series, which cancelled its red carpet premiere in honour of Boyce earlier this month. Disney Channel said in a statement at the time of the cancellation that it would be donating to non-profit the Third Project instead, and that it will dedicate the “Descendants 3” telecast in his memory.
His other credits include Disney Junior’s “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” and Disney XD’s series “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything.” He also played Adam Sandler’s son in “Grown-Ups” and “Grown-Ups 2.”
