Boyce passed away from an epileptic seizure at 20-years-old in July 2019. Jessie aired on the Disney Channel from 2011 to 2015.
As Chamberlin–who played butler Bertram–wiped away his tears, he shared that Boyce was a “beautiful soul” and that he was an amazing dancer. List followed Chamberlin’s words, saying that Boyce “made me such a better person” and that the late star would teach her something new every day. Brar said he enjoyed growing up alongside his on-screen brother and the time that they spent together.
Jackson recollected the first time she saw Boyce on Dancing With the Stars and how blown away she was by his talent. The actress also recalled the first time she met Boyce and how excited she was to meet him.
Ryan, who portrayed the kids’ nanny, shared that she felt such a strong bond with Boyce and how much she admired him.
“We were so close in age that we were both kind of just going through the same experiences and helping each other figure it out,” Ryan said, adding that Boyce was there for her while her mother fought cancer.
The Jessie cast continued to share their favorite memories from the show as they virtually watched scenes together. They also encouraged fans to donate to support The Actors Fund and its services.
