Cameron Boyce only broke character to play basketball. Casually shooting hoops was “all Cameron,” his parents, Libby and Victor Boyce, tell tmrw. But their son was not on set for indie film Runt at Verdugo Hills High School in Los Angeles to be Cameron. The late 20-year-old was fully immersed in becoming Cal, an isolated high school senior who has nobody to care for or receive care from other than his dog named Runt, for his heaviest and most mature role yet. He did not interact with his mother, whom he actually had a very close relationship with, for months because Cal’s mother was an absent parent. He was disciplined in Cal’s outcast and somber mindset at all times. He had something to prove, and he viewed Runt as his vehicle. As it turned out, Runt was Cameron’s parting gift.
The night before he tragically died on July 6, 2019, from a seizure caused by his preexisting epilepsy, Cameron went to dinner with his mom and dad. He texted his dad about the Los Angeles Lakers—basketball, all Cameron—until 12:30 a.m. Hours later, he was gone. He was just barely a young man, and Runt was an early step toward growing into himself.
“Runt is one of first projects Cameron started and completed without any involvement from us,” Libby and Victor say. “As a young man it was important to both of us that Cameron be in control of his own affairs, at least on the creative side.”
They are now solely in control of carrying on their son’s life work through The Cameron Boyce Foundation and its Wielding Peace project.
They add: “Runt was a very important piece for Cameron’s legacy because he was able to play a serious and socially relatable character, which is something he had never done. After Descendants 3 wrapped, Cameron was determined to do edgy, socially relevant projects that were both difficult and meaningful. We are very happy that he got to do this before his untimely passing.”

The late 26-year-old artist, who passed away from an accidental overdose, had more stored away, and his family decided to posthumously release his sixth and final studio album Circles last Friday (Jan. 17).
“Here we are,” the family of Mac Miller, born Malcolm McCormick, posted to his Instagram page on Jan. 6. “The act of having to write this at all feels surreal. At the time of his passing, Malcolm was well into the process of recording his companion album to Swimming, entitled Circles. Two different styles complementing each other, completing a circle—Swimming in Circles was the concept.”
