Cameron Boyce wasn’t just a normal actor. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Boyce was often described as an old soul. Even at a young age, he’s proven himself to be experienced and talented. A veteran at the age of 20, as some would dub him. Most of the times, he would share his thoughts of showcasing his artistic talents with the world, in hopes to inspire the future generation.
No doubt, he’s shown to be ahead of his peers. He’s graced both the big and small screens, playing different kinds of roles. But no matter how big or small the role is, Boyce shows his passion and love for performing arts. His television debut started with Panic! at the Disco music video, ‘That Green Gentleman’. After that, he began his way up the industry and found himself playing a co-starring part for the horror film, ‘Mirrors’, and mystery-thriller film ‘Eagle Eye’ with Shia LaBeouf.
At the same time, he appeared in ‘Grown Ups’ until Disney picked him up. He played the role of Luke Ross in Jessie and as Conor for Disney XD’s ‘Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything’. But among his projects, the most notable would be his role in Disney’s ‘Descendants’. Playing as the son of Cruella de Vil, Carlos, he later reprised his role for the animated shorts and a sequel film. And just this January this year, he joined the cast of HBO’s Mrs. Fletcher.
