The Descendants 3 cast members are still pained by the death of their co-star Cameron Boyce and mourning his loss. That being said, at the film’s premiere on Friday, they had a very special way of paying tribute to the late 20 year old.
Apparently, the young actors sent Cameron text messages just before the premiere.
As you know, the talented Disney star passed away in his sleep because of a seizure.
Dove Cameron took to her platform to share a screengrab from their group chat that includes Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart and Boyce.
‘I love you so much,’ Cameron and Carson had written.
Stewart then added: ‘I love you so much too.’
As you can imagine, the touching post brought many grief-stricken fans in the comment section since many are also having a hard time accepting that the star is gone.
About the group chat, Cameron shared via Seventeen magazine last month that the remaining cast members wanted to keep it active even after Boyce’s passing
‘Me, Booboo, Cam and Sofia still have our core four group chat active and open, as we have for five years. It is hard when there are no adequate words to express the pain we’re all feeling, but the usual text is ‘I love you.’ Or ‘are you eating?’ Or ‘how are we all today?’ I think something such as this horrible loss makes you realize just how important you’re all to each other. I’m grateful for my chosen family at a time like this,’ she told the news outlet.

i think that’s all the behind the scenes content i have. i wanted to post all of it, because i need to give it all away, i can’t hold it anymore. these past 6 years have been filled with more growth, more deep, true love and more vibrant LIFE, than most people experience in a lifetime and for that, i am forever grateful and forever indebted. i am humbled by the relationships i have made, the family i have found. i never thought i would ever feel truly SEEN for the human alien (that i think all artists feel they are) that i am until i found these people, my tribe. to @kennyortegablog : you are my guiding light, my mentor, my idol, my friend. thank you for shaping me into the performer that i am, you will always have your mark on me. to the fans: you are incredible, your dedication is unfathomable. i cannot believe how loved and cared for you have made us all feel, and all of this is thanks to YOU and your support. we owe it all to you. to our entire cast family , thank you for making me what i am. i truly believe i will never know better people, and i could never put my gratitude into words. to @sofiacarson , @booboostewart.art and cameron. words fail me. my heart is heavy with pain, and aching, agonizing love. my siblings. 6 years with the best. how did i get so lucky? goodbye, descendants. i will be forever grateful for this world, this momentary allowance into what felt like a double life. this world that was only ours, that we got to literally BUILD UP around us, that kept us safe, that let us escape to a place where everything made sense and everyone had love and a place they belonged, in our most formative and sensitive years. i needed you at 17, when i was lost and looking, and now i leave you stronger, deeply rooted and decidedly wild, if not a little heartbroken. although, i never truly leave you.
Yesterday, the posts celebrating Boyce around the movie’s premiere continued, Cameron also sharing an emotional behind the scenes video that featured the stats hugging on the soundstage.
‘Six years. one family. we love you Cameron,’ she wrote alongside the footage.
