Parents of late actor Cameron Boyce open up about the night their 20yo son died

When Cameron Boyce's parents said goodbye to their son after a family dinner, they had no idea it would be their last time seeing him alive.

Victor and Libby Boyce have spoken out about their son's final hours in a candid new interview with Good Morning America. The 20-year-old Disney Channel star died after suffering an epileptic seizure in his sleep on July 6.

"It was a completely normal, beautiful family night out to dinner," said his father, Victor. 

"There was no indication that anything was wrong. There was no way to know in hours my son would be dead. We were texting that night.

"It was just staggeringly crazy and horrible."

Boyce died unexpectedly in his sleep after his epilepsy triggered a seizure. His body was cremated and his ashes were returned to his family, People reports.

Boyce's parents said their son "didn't want his epilepsy to define him". 

"He wasn't scared... he never complained about anything," said his father.

The 20-year-old cut his teeth in films such as Eagle Eye in 2008 and the Grown Ups film series, working alongside comedy veterans Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and Kevin James. 

He also starred in Disney's Jessie and Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything, as well as the popular Descendants franchise.

Boyce's family have since established the Cameron Boyce Foundation to honour their son's legacy.

The foundation aims to "provide young people [with] artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity".
