Boyce died Saturday at age 20. His family initially announced he had died from a seizure as a result of a medical condition, but did not disclose what it was at the time.
“Cameron’s tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy,” a rep for the family said in a new statement to E! News on Tuesday.
“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.”
Sources told the Daily News earlier this week that Boyce had lived with epilepsy.
The actor starred on the Disney Channel show “Jessie” and on the network’s “Descendants” made-for-TV movie series.
On Monday, his father thanked those who have offered kind words following his death.
“I’m overwhelmed with the love and support our family has received,” Victor Boyce. “It really does help to ease the pain of this nightmare I can’t wake up from. I can’t thank you guys enough.”
