Wizards of Waverly Place actor, Gregg Sulkin, who knew Cameron for many years, also shared that he is heartbroken,
Heartbroken. Lost for words. I had known Cameron Boyce for many years. He was always polite. Always respectful and always a class act. In fact I was going to message him a couple weeks ago to tell him that I wanted to be in each other’s lives more.
