Debby Ryan, Karan Brar, Skai Jackson, Peyton List and Kevin Chamberlain all opened up about working with Cameron Boyce.
The cast of Jessie just reunited in a livestream and spoke candidly about Cameron Boyce and how much he means to them.
Last Friday (Apr 10), Debby Ryan, Karan Brar, Skai Jackson, Peyton List and Kevin Chamberlain came together for a Stars in the House live stream to raise money for The Actors Fund. During the video, the stars reminisced about their time on the hit Disney show together but they also took time to honour their beloved co-star, Cameron Boyce, who passed away in 2019.
A fan asked the cast what their favourite memory of Cameron was and they all got emotional discussing his impact on them.
Kevin Chamberlain (Bertram) answered first. Tearing up, he said: "Cameron was an amazing dancer. He was always spot on, he was always at a 10. He was really one of the kindest people.” Peyton List (Emma) then added: "We spent every moment together. Cameron was an amazing soul. He made me such a better person... he would teach me something every day."
Karan Brar (Ravi), who recently got a tattoo in honour of Cameron, talked about Cameron being like an actual brother to him. "My parents called him son and Libby and Vic they're like parents to me." Skai, who often uses social media to talk about her relationship with Cameron, then said that she got a sense of how "sweet and loving he was" as soon as they met.
Debby then said: "Cam could be casually making a sandwich and just sing and you'd be blown away." She also explained that even though she wasn't vocal about it, he was there for her in season 3 when her mum was battling cancer. He'd hug her and act like her brother whenever she was fragile and crying on set: "I will never forget that. He's so special."
Last year (Jul 6), Cameron Boyce's family announced that the beloved Disney actor had died at the age of 20. In a statement they wrote: "It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron. He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated."
Cameron played Luke in Jessie in all four seasons of the show. He also starred as Carlos in Disney's Descendants franchise.
