Remembering Cameron Boyce.
Before the actor’s death at age 20 on July 6, 2019, following a seizure in his sleep, fans wondered if the Descendants star had a lucky lady in his life. During a July 2017 interview with RAW, the former Disney Channel star played a game of word association and when given the world “girlfriend,” he replied, “hard to get one.”
Throughout his time in the spotlight, Cameron was linked to a few of his costars, but never went public with a relationship. Descendants viewers always wondered if he and costars Dove Cameron or Sofia Carson were more than friends, but he set the record straight.
“I’m dating five people. I’m dating [Dove], I’m dating Sofia, I’m dating Sofia’s sister, I’m dating Brenna [D’Amico], I’m dating Sophie [Reynolds],” he teased in an interview when promoting the film franchise. “I’m dating everyone and I’m dating none of them.”
Other romance rumors surrounded Cameron and his Gamer’s Guide To Pretty Much Everything costar Sophie. However, the actors compared their relationship to that of siblings.
“Soph. My sister. Happy birthday. We share a love that people have trouble comprehending, that’s how special it is,” Cameron wrote via Instagram in April 2017 when celebrating her birthday. “I’d be in a very different place without you. … But just because you’re an ‘adult’ doesn’t mean you get to boss me around any more than you already do. Love you.”
Despite keeping things about his relationship status under wraps, Cameron did speak of his past romantic experiences before his death. While chatting with Young Hollywood in October 2018, the Jessie star recalled the moment he had his first kiss.
“I was maybe 11 and I had a girlfriend and I tried to kiss her on her forehead but she went on her tippy toes and caught my lips. And it took me by surprise! I was just going for your forehead,” Cameron shared at the time. “That was the most un-smooth first kiss, just so not romantic at all, that’s actually pretty bad. I hope your first kiss was better than mine!”
When it came to heartbreak, Cameron revealed during the same interview that he didn’t think that was something he ever experienced.
“I don’t even know if I would consider it heartbreak, it’s sort of disappointment,” he shared. “Things happen, you know, you gotta move on.”
