Adam Sandler took to Instagram to pen a heartfelt tribute to late Disney actor Cameron Boyce after his sudden death on Saturday, July 6.
Boyce died as a result of a seizure brought on by an ‘ongoing medical condition,’ according to a statement from his family.
‘Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around,’ Sandler wrote just hours after his death. ‘Loved that kid.’
Cameron and Adam worked together on Sandler’s hit comedies Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2.
‘Cared so much about his family. Cared so much about the world,’ Sandler continued. ‘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.’
Boyce portrayed Sandler’s son Keithie Feder in the hit films.
Salma Hayek, who portrayed Boyce’s mother, wrote on her : ‘I had the privilege to play Cameron’s mother in #grownups 1 and 2 and we stayed in touch through the years.’
‘He was spirited, talented, kind, generous, funny and a shining light, she recalled. ‘His joy will live in our hearts forever as he goes on dancing and shining elsewhere. My heart goes to his lovely family.’
Disney boss Robert Iger: ‘The Walt Disney Company mourns the loss of Cameron Boyce, who was a friend to so many of us, and filled with so much talent, heart and life, and far too young to die.’
‘Our prayers go out to his family and his friends,’ Iger added.
Millie Bobby Brown took to Instagram and posted a photo of Cameron, and wrote ‘RIP’ with heart above his image.
‘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,’ a family statement said.
‘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.’
