Cameron Boyce’s parents have spoken out for the 1st time following his tragic July 6 passing. When speaking with ‘GMA,’ the couple admitted that there was ‘no indication’ anything was wrong before his death.
In a new interview with Good Morning America, the mother and father of late Disney star Cameron Boyce have spoken out after his July 6 passing. The actor’s parents, Libby and Victor Boyce, reflected on the night they lost their son in the chat, which is set to air in full on August 15. “The night he passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before,” the star’s father told GMA anchor Robin Roberts in an interview. “It was a completely normal, beautiful family night out to dinner,” he explained.
While the star’s death came as a shock to fans across the globe, it was just as much of one for his family. “There was no indication that anything was wrong. I mean there was no way to know in hours my son would be dead. Like, it was just staggeringly crazy and horrible. And we were texting that night,” his father explained in the interview.
Cameron, who appeared in films such as Grown Ups and The Descendants, “didn’t want his epilepsy to define him,” his mom added. “It didn’t define him,” said Victor Boyce. “He wasn’t scared. He never complained about anything.”
