“We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”

Boyce shot to fame in the Disney Channel kids TV show Jessie before starring in the Descendants movie franchise, again for Disney.

However, arguably one of his most known roles was in the comedy film Grown Ups where he played Keithie Feder, son of Adam Sandler’s character Leonard Feder.

He also starred in the sequel, Grown Ups 2.

A Disney Channel spokesman described Boyce as an “incredibly talented performer”.

They said: “From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world.

“As a young man, he was fuelled by a strong desire to make a difference in peoples’ lives through his humanitarian work.

“He was an incredibly talented performer, a remarkably caring and thoughtful person and, above all else, he was a loving and dedicated son, brother, grandson and friend.
“We offer our deepest condolences to his family, cast mates and colleagues and join his many millions of fans in grieving his untimely passing. He will be dearly missed.”
