Cameron Boyce’s dad shares final photo of actor taken hours before death

Cameron Boyce's dad took this photo "just hours before he was snatched from our lives"

Cameron Boyce’s dad Victor has shared a photo from the actor’s final hours.

The Disney star died in his sleep last week following a seizure linked to “an ongoing medical condition”.

The 20-year-old was best-known for starring in the Disney Descendants films and the TV show Jessie, as well as Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups.

Victor captioned the Instagram photo with: “I miss him terribly. I hope that no-one ever has to feel the agony I’m feeling.”

He added: “The outpouring of love and support our family continues to receive is so beautiful and appreciated. Thank you all for helping us through our worst possible situation.”

Cameron’s cause of death is yet to be determined by a coroner

A post-mortem was carried out on Monday, but the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s office said that further investigation was needed before an official cause of death can be concluded.

In a statement to People the Boyce family reportedly confirmed that the medical condition Cameron had was epilepsy, a common brain condition that can cause frequent seizures.

Since his death, there have been thousands of tributes to the actor, including from co-star Debbie Ryan, who appeared with Cameron in Disney Channel show Jessie.

“This ripped me up. I keep trying and I can’t make anything make sense,” she wrote on Instagram.

This ripped me up. I keep trying and I can’t make anything make sense. He was blameless, and relentlessly joyful; he was good. Through and through, Cam is good, in all ways and to all people. And the most alive. It’s wrong. I am so confused and devastated and angry. But that isn’t very Cam. He’d cast any shade of sadness or darkness in colors of positivity; he couldn’t help himself but to always leave you smiling, or laughing, or dancing. So sincere, kid Truth. He was good. My heart is with his parents, Vic and Libby, full of grace, and his wonderful sister Maya. An unimaginable sorrow. I’m grateful for our Jessie family, with whom to uniquely grieve our guy — Peyton, Skai, Kevin and Karan, whose soul is also far too special to have to experience this depth of grief. There are beautiful connections and beams of light, ever present, truly the fingerprints of Cam still around and showing up in the midst of this. I love him so much. Forever. You’re alive in the legacy of love you built, and I will keep that light burning in me for the rest of my journey. The world was robbed. We’re better for you.

Stranger Things star Gaten Matazarro, Jessie co-star Skai Jackson and Dove Cameron, who starred in Descendents, have also recently shared their thoughts on the actor.

“I have close to nothing left, which tells me some small percentage about how you must be feeling,” Dove said in a letter to Victor and the rest of Cameron’s family, in a frank and tearful video about how she’s been feeling since his death.
