Another one of Cameron Boyce’s acting partners if paying tribute to him.
Since Cameron Boyce passed away suddenly over the weekend, there’s been an endless stream of his colleagues writing and recording memories of him.
One of the most notable ones was from Adam Sandler, who played Boyce’s dad in Grown-Ups.
One actress who had been surprisingly silent thus far was his “Descendants” co-star Dove Cameron. But late on Tuesday night, she took to Instagram with a series of six extremely touching videos remembering her friend.
She started by explaining her hesitancy to say anything publicly about Boyce:
“I felt really weird about posting about Cameron on social media because I felt really emotional and private and intimate, and social media is the opposite of that. And I just couldn’t quite reconcile the two, or make them fit, so I didn’t know what I was going to do.”
Dove went on to read some words she wrote. First, she expressed her sympathy to Boyce’s family. Then she talked about Boyce himself:
“Cameron was one of my favorite people alive in the world. Though I know that’s not unique to me, Cameron was magic — an earth angel. Over the last six years, since he was only 14, Cameron talked me down from countless ledges, talked me through eating disorders, helped me out of a dark relationship and through endless breakdowns.”
She went on to say goodbye to her friend:
“Goodbye my dear, dear friend and brother. You leave behind a colossal wake, a profound chasm that can never be filled but you also leave millions and millions of deeply impacted, hope-filled and love-filled human beings who are who they are because of you and how you spent your brief 20 years on this earth. What a gift you were; you turned the world on its head. We can all only hope to be half of the human that you were and you deserved so much more time. Goodbye to an earth angel. I will spend the rest of my life missing and loving you and all the better for knowing you.”
