All of Cameron Boyce's 'Jessie' co-stars have spoken out since his passing, talking about how devastated they are and how much they will miss him. The one person we have been seemingly waiting on is Jessie herself, Debby Ryan. The day Boyce, 20, passed, Ryan did post an inspirational speech from her late co-star as her Instagram story and followed it up with a short video of them hugging during the series on loop. Yet, no words. It is not like she has to say anything if she is not ready but her much younger castmates, like Skai Jackson, spoke so eloquently, it seemed odd for Ryan to just say nothing. But the silence has broken and Disney Channel's favorite nanny has spoken. As of last night, she dedicated her whole IG story to Cameron and memories with the cast of 'Jessie' and followed it with a post of two selfies of Ryan and Boyce, one personal and one in character, along with a deeply heartfelt message:
"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 colors of positivity; he couldn't help himself but to always leave you smiling, or laughing, or dancing. So sincere, kid Truth. He was good...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."
Ryan also acknowledged their 'Jessie' co-stars as they are able to grieve through this tragedy together as only they can. She also sent her thoughts to Karan Brar (Ravi), who was also Cameron's roomie, as well as Boyce's whole family. We now know he suffered from epilepsy which caused his late night seizure and untimely death. We are still sending our love, thoughts, and endless prayers to his friends and family.
