Actor Cameron Boyce’s family confirmed the Disney star died after suffering an epileptic seizure.

Boyce, 20, passed away in his sleep Saturday at his home in Hollywood, according to a report published Tuesday by E! News.

“Cameron’s tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy,” a spokesperson for the family said.

“We are still trying to navigate our way through this extremely heart-wrenching time, and continue to ask for privacy so that the family, and all who knew and loved him can grieve his loss and make arrangements for his funeral — which in and of itself, is agonizing,” the family added.
