Late Disney star Cameron Boyce’s parents said, before his death last month, they were out to dinner with him and had “no indication” anything was wrong.
“The night he [Boyce] passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before,” the Disney Channel star’s father, Victor Boyce, told “Good Morning America” in an interview that will air Thursday, per Page Six in a piece published Wednesday.

Victor continued, “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.”
Cameron’s father confirmed the actor suffered from epilepsy, but he didn’t let it define his life.
“It didn’t define him,” Victor explained. “He wasn’t scared. He never complained about anything.”
“He loved life. This is, for me, the hardest thing,” the Disney star’s mom, Libby, shared. “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.”
“He was 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,” she added. “Use your voice. Use it to make positive in the world, and that’s what he was starting to do.”
As previously reported, “The Descendants 3” star died in his sleep last month after suffering from an epilepsy-related seizure. He was just 20 years old.
