Reactions are pouring in as the world wakes up to the news on the death of actor Cameron Boyce. Many of his fans grew up with him via the Disney Channel, so his death was particularly personal.

Disney Channel, which was the fulcrum for Boyce’s career, issued the following statement:

“From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world. As a young man, he was fueled by a strong desire to make a difference in peoples’ lives through his humanitarian work,” said a Disney Channel spokesperson. “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.”

Said Tom Perrotta, writer/executive producer of Boyce’s upcoming HBO series Mrs. Fletcher:

“Everyone involved with Mrs. Fletcher is shocked and heartbroken by the news of Cameron’s passing. He was only twenty—way too young—but he was an extroardinarily gifted and seasoned actor, and a lovely, soulful human being. I’m sure I speak for the entire cast and crew when I say that he was a wonderful friend and colleague, and will be sorely missed by all of us. We send our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.”
