Debby Ryan has revealed her ‘anger, devastation and confusion’ as the death of her Jessie co-star Cameron Boyce.
The Disney Channel actor died in his sleep, with the news confirmed on Sunday.
Following Cameron’s death, his co-stars, including from his most recently project Descendants 3 and Grown Ups co-star Adam Sandler, have continued an outpouring of tributes and memories of the popular actor.
Debby Ryan posted a video of 20-year-old Cameron speaking earlier this week; however, she’d remained silent on her emotions until now.
Now the actress has broken her silence on his passing, as she took to social media to share a series of sweet images of her with Cameron and a lengthy statement.
Proclaiming her heartbreak, the 26-year-old wrote: ‘This ripped me up. I keep trying and I can’t make anything make sense.
‘He was blameless, and relentlessly joyful; he was good. Through and through, Cam is good, in all ways and to all people. And the most alive.
‘It’s wrong. I am so confused and devastated and angry. But that isn’t very Cam. He’d cast any shade of sadness or darkness in colours of positivity; he couldn’t help himself but to always leave you smiling, or laughing, or dancing. So sincere, kid Truth. He was good.’
Debby – who played the nanny to Cameron’s character Luke Ross in the Disney Channel series, which ran from 2011 until 2015 – shared three images of her with Cameron, including one where the pair appeared to be at an event.
As Debby appeared to take the selfie, Cameron closed his eyes and sported a massive grin.
‘My heart is with his parents, Vic and Libby, full of grace, and his wonderful sister Maya. An unimaginable sorrow,’ she continued.
‘I’m grateful for our Jessie family, with whom to uniquely grieve our guy — Peyton, Skai, Kevin and Karan, whose soul is also far too special to have to experience this depth of grief.
‘There are beautiful connections and beams of light, ever present, truly the fingerprints of Cam still around and showing up in the midst of this. I love him so much. Forever. You’re alive in the legacy of love you built, and I will keep that light burning in me for the rest of my journey.
‘The world was robbed. We’re better for you.’
On Sunday a spokesperson confirmed Cameron had died due to an ‘ongoing medical condition’.
‘It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,’ a spokesperson told ABC news in the US.
‘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.
‘The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.
‘We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.’
