Cameron Boyce’s Parents Give First Interview Since His Passing — WATCH!
Cameron Boyce‘s parents give their first interview since his unexpected death.
As we reported, in July, the Disney Channel star passed away from epilepsy at the age of 20.
On Wednesday, Good Morning America aired a sneak peek of Robin Roberts‘ interview with Victor and Libby Boyce where they discuss the thespian’s final hours.
According to his father:
“The night he passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before… It was a completely normal, beautiful family night out to dinner… 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.”
Libby added her son “didn’t want his epilepsy to define him” and made sure “it didn’t.” She continued:
“Never… He loved life. He was kind of in a place — this is, for me, the hardest thing — he was in a place where he was truly happy. I mean, Cameron was always happy. Never a negative thing came out of his mouth. Never! But he was just really finding his groove.”
Aside from his success as an actor, Victor and Libby highlighted Cameron’s charity work — which they plan to continue through a foundation in their late son’s name.
His mom exclaimed:
“He was really, like, really getting into the charity stuff. Really getting into what he wanted to do with his voice, which is what we always told him to do — use your voice. Use it to make positive in the world… And that’s what he was starting to do.”
“His legacy is important to us because we don’t want him to be remembered as just an actor or some Disney kid. Because he was so much more than that… He wanted to be known as his own person, you know, individually and not cookie-cutter.”
Overall, Cameron’s parents remember their son for being a superstar — both on-screen and off. Libby recalled:
“Holidays and events, when he would walk in, it would just light up the room and the party would start… And so that’s just an important message that, you know, as an actor, that was just a small piece of who he was… That’s what gave him some fame, but as a human, he was all about, you know, not being cookie cutter, and about creativity and about joy and no labels… He was just a human being.”
