Actor Cameron Boyce's death was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition that has been identified by his family as epilepsy.

The Disney star, 20, died after being found unconscious at his home in North Hollywood on Saturday (July 6).

A spokesperson for his family told ABC News in a statement: "Cameron's tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy."

The family asked for privacy as they make arrangements for his funeral. 

"We are still trying to navigate our way through this extremely heart wrenching time, and continue to ask for privacy so that the family, and all who knew and loved him can grieve his loss and make arrangements for his funeral - which in and of itself, is agonizing," the statement added.

The statement comes after an autopsy was carried out on Monday. The Los Angeles County Department Of Medical Examiner-Coroner previously said the cause of death required "further investigation".

On Sunday, the actor's father Victor Boyce thanked fans via Twitter for their "love and support".

He tweeted: "I'm overwhelmed with the love and support our family has received. It really does help to ease the pain of this nightmare I can't wake up from. I can't thank you guys enough."

Boyce was born in Los Angeles and made his acting debut aged nine in the horror film Mirrors in 2008.

He became best known for playing Carlos, son of villain Cruella De Vil, in 2015's Disney TV movie Descendants and the sequel in 2017. He also starred in the Adam Sandler films Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2.
