Actor Cameron Boyce, known for his role in Disney Channel's Jessie, has died at age 20.

A spokesperson for the family has confirmed that Boyce died in his sleep due to a seizure that was the result of an “ongoing medical condition.”

"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."

The young star was already a seasoned actor by his teens. With his acting debut at age nine in horror film Mirrors, Boyce soon stepped into an ongoing role as Luke Ross in Jessie and a lead role in Disney’s Descendants films.

"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 Disney Channel spokesperson shared.
