Actor Cameron Boyce, a very young star on the Disney Channel television series, died at the age of 20.

“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that we lost Cameron this morning,” said a spokesman on behalf of the family, quoted by the ABC. The young man “died in his sleep due to an attack, the result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated”.

Boyce starred in “Jessie,” a television program about a girl from a small town, played by Debby Ryan, who works as a nanny for a wealthy family after moving to New York. Boyce was one of the children in the family.

Born in Los Angeles on May 28, Cameron Boyce made his debut on TV in the soap opera General Hospital: Night Shift … right after, his commercials began, while at the cinema he starred in films. But the Disney show ‘Jessie’ and above all the character of Carlos De Mon, son of Crudelia De Mon, in the movie saga Descendants, consecrated him to the public of the very young.
