Cameron Boyce’s Family Reunites With ‘Descendants’ Cast During Kenny Ortega Hollywood Star Ceremony
On Wednesday (July 24), Kenny Ortega was the latest celebrity to receive a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. While this is a special moment for anybody, the Descendants and High School Musical director was surrounded by not only his Disney family, but also the family of Cameron Boyce — the Descendants star who tragically passed away earlier this month at the age of 20. His father Victor and sister Maya were in attendance.
During Ortega's acceptance speech, he took time to talk about the young actor gone too soon. "Cameron Boyce was so excited for me…His all too brief appearance in this life, though, inspired me beyond words and many of us here and generations of kids and families all over this world," he said. "His extraordinary talent and loving heart will be remembered through his foundation. The foundation is called The Cameron Boyce Foundation and has been set up by his family to remember Cameron by continuing his pursuit to make positive change in the world."
"Cameron said we can't take it with us so it's about what you leave and with this I promise Cameron that I will carry this goodness with me in all the days of my life," he added.
Disney stars Dove Cameron, Booboo Stewart, Mitchell Hope and Monique Coleman were all in attendance to support Ortega and remember Boyce.
On July 6, Boyce died unexpectedly in his sleep after suffering a fatal seizure caused by epilepsy.
