Dove Cameron Reacts to Cameron Boyce's Death

Dove Cameron Shares a Tearful Tribute to Disney Costar Cameron Boyce: "Cameron Was Magic"

Dove Cameron is speaking out following the death of her Disney co-star Cameron Boyce. In a series of videos posted on Instagram, a teary-eyed Dove — who starred alongside Cameron in the Descendants films — told fans she wasn't sure if she wanted to post about the news on social media while personally dealing with the grief. But after going to therapy, she decided to write a heartfelt tribute to her friend and share it with others.

"Cameron was magic — an earth angel," she said. "Over the last six years, since he was only 14, Cameron talked me down from countless ledges, talked me through eating disorders, helped me out of a dark relationship and through endless breakdowns." She went on to share how he would help her remember dances moves and make her laugh while they were working on set.

"He was undoubtedly the most talented person most of us will ever know," she added. "But what was special about Cameron was who he was in the small moments when maybe no one was looking — the moments in between the big ones when he didn't have to be good or kind. Cameron was always good and kind."

Cameron — who had epilepsy — died at the age of 20 on July 6 after experiencing a seizure in his sleep. Following his death, many co-stars and friends — including Adam Sandler, Yara Shahidi, and Michelle Obama — have posted loving tributes in his honour. "Cam, you were one of a kind," wrote Skai Jackson, who starred alongside Cameron in the Disney series Jessie from 2011 to 2015. "Thank you so much for being the big brother I never had."
