Boyce died Saturday in his sleep after a seizure. He was 20 years old.

His family told People magazine the seizure was the result of an ongoing medical condition.

Boyce was set to appear in “Mrs. Fletcher,” a new HBO comedy series coming this fall.

A Disney spokesperson says not only was Boyce incredibly talented, but he was also involved in a number of philanthropic causes.
