Cameron Boyce‘s memory is living on in the people he was closest to in his career — which couldn’t have been more clear than at Kenny Ortega‘s Walk of Fame ceremony.
The esteemed director — who headed up Disney’s “Descendants” film, which starred Cameron — was honored Wednesday with his own star on Hollywood Boulevard. During his speech, he made sure to mention the late actor, who tragically died this month.
Kenny said Cameron — whose father and sister attended the event as well — had inspired him beyond words, and also inspired a generation of kids who were familiar with his work.
He went on to say that Cameron told him something once that he relayed to the crowd — watch the clip … it’s pretty profound that Cameron was talking like that before his sudden passing. Kenny also touted a foundation Cameron’s family has started in his name.
As we’ve reported … Cameron suffered from epilepsy throughout his life, before dying in his sleep in early July after enduring a fatal seizure. His exact cause of death has yet to be released, but authorities have listed it as a “natural death.”
His family has thanked all of Cameron’s fans for the outpouring of love and support, and said of their son … “He was and is, so cherished and we will hold him in our hearts forever. He is our shooting star.”
Cameron was just 20 years old. RIP
