Read Randy Blythe’s Tribute to Late Disney Channel Star Cameron Boyce


Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to Cameron Boyce. The actor, who appeared in various Disney Channel programs and the Adam Sandler Grown-Ups movies, died yesterday at age 20. According to TMZ, Boyce “had an ongoing medical condition and died in his sleep” as “the result of a seizure.”

Blythe says he met Boyce when “we did some acting together for an upcoming production.” In addition to the written tribute, Blythe included a photo he took of Boyce as well. Both are below.

“’Shine on, Bright Star’ Hollywood, CA. 1.5.2019 It is with a heavy heart that I must bid this young man, Cameron Boyce, a peaceful journey on his trip to the great beyond. I met Cameron working in Hollywood- we did some acting together for an upcoming production. Cameron was a Disney child actor, now growing into a young man- he was just 20 years old when he died last night of natural causes due to an ongoing medical condition. Despite being a famous as a child star, he was as about as down to earth as a person could get, which greatly impressed me- there was absolutely zero sense of entitlement about him. We had a lot of laughs on set, not mention good talks on the nature & perils of fame. Cameron was incredibly talented- he could dance, sing, & was a brilliant actor with a great sense of humor & a genuine curiosity about the world- just truly a joy to watch perform. I would watch him on set doing his thing & think ‘Man- he’s SO GOOD.’ Incidentally, his paternal grandmother, Jo Ann (Allen) Boyce, is a Civil Rights icon, one of the first 12 African-Americans to attend an integrated high school in the south, in 1956- I believe that this sort of upbringing lead to his strength of character, & philanthropic nature. Although he & I came from very different worlds- the Disney scene & the heavy metal music world are pretty much polar opposites- we got along well & I was really looking forward to seeing & working with him again. I extend my most sincere condolences to Cameron’s family & friends. The world needs more socially aware & kind hearted young men, & we certainly lost a good one last night. I took this photo on set- you can see the kindness in his eyes. Safe journey, bro- see you on the other side.”
