One of the most voluble, articulate and appealing contributors to the HBO documentary Showbiz Kids is Cameron Boyce, star of the Disney Channel franchise Descendants and the teen comedy series Jessie.

Tragically, Boyce didn’t live to see the finished documentary, which is dedicated to him. He was found dead in his bed in July of last year at the age of just 20. When an actor dies so young, the temptation is to jump to conclusions. It was alcoholism, or a drug overdose, or depression-induced suicide.
