A family spokesperson told ABC : “It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron.
“He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated.
“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.
“We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”
In a statement, a Disney Channel spokesperson said: “From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world.
“As a young man, he was fuelled 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.”
Cameron rose to fame in the Disney Channel show Jessie but one of his best known roles was in the comedy films Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2, where he played Keith Feder, son of Adam Sandler’s character Lenny.
Following the tragic announcement, Sandler took to Twitter, writing:
‘Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around. Loved that kid. 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’s uncle, London Boyce, also paid tribute in a touching Instagram post, writing: “My heart is broken. I’ve lost my beloved nephew.
“Words cannot express how sad I am right now but Cameron left an indelible mark on all who were blessed to share any moment with him.
“He was a constant beacon of light a pure joy and a beautiful soul.
“He lived a short life but it was awesome and exciting and fulfilled. We will miss you with all our hearts Cameron but you will never ever be forgotten.
“REST IN HEAVEN I LOVE YOU, Uncle Bruh.”
Our thoughts are with Cameron’s friends and family at this tragic time.
Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent writer, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. He subsequently honed his writing skills over the course of several sex-related articles, bringing a very public shame to his family's good name.
