Debby Ryan & Skai Jackson Pay Tribute to Cameron Boyce

Debby Ryan and Skai Jackson are honoring their Jessie co-star, Cameron Boyce.

The 26-year-old and 17-year-old actress both paid tribute to Cameron’s memory in touching Instagram posts on Thursday (July 11).

Cameron died suddenly in sleep after suffering a seizure on on July 6.

“This ripped me up. I keep trying and I can’t make anything make sense,” Debby wrote in her emotional post. “He was blameless, and relentlessly joyful; he was good. Through and through, Cam is good, in all ways and to all people. And the most alive. It’s wrong. I am so confused and devastated and angry. But that isn’t very Cam. He’d cast any shade of sadness or darkness in colors of positivity; he couldn’t help himself but to always leave you smiling, or laughing, or dancing. So sincere, kid Truth. He was good. My heart is with his parents, Vic and Libby, full of grace, and his wonderful sister Maya. An unimaginable sorrow. I’m grateful for our Jessie family, with whom to uniquely grieve our guy — Peyton, Skai, Kevin and Karan, whose soul is also far too special to have to experience this depth of grief. There are beautiful connections and beams of light, ever present, truly the fingerprints of Cam still around and showing up in the midst of this. I love him so much. Forever. You’re alive in the legacy of love you built, and I will keep that light burning in me for the rest of my journey. The world was robbed. We’re better for you.”

Skai shared her own message on Thursday (July 11), along with a video of Cameron singing.

“#tbt @thecameronboyce was such a talented actor and a phenomenal dancer. What most people didn’t know was that he also was a very good singer,” she wrote. “I remember years ago, my mom would tell him that his voice is so good and the girls love him, he could be as big as Justin Bieber or better. He would say, ‘Umm, I don’t know. Maybe one day.’ Singing was not his passion but he could definitely hold his own. -Ordinary People by @johnlegend #CameronBoyce.”

Charles Esten, who played the dad on the Disney Channel show, penned a lengthy note after knowing the 20-year-old well before they worked together on the series.

“My family and I are devastated today, by the loss of our young and amazing friend, Cameron Boyce. Years before I was blessed to play his father on JESSIE, we were blessed to know him and his wonderful family at the elementary school our kids all attended together,” he started out. “It was a joy to work with him on JESSIE, as it was with all the wonderful young stars of that beloved show. They were as close as actual brothers and sisters to one another, and still are, and my heart breaks for them today.”

“Our love and heartfelt prayers go out to them, and most especially, to the Boyce family. Your Cameron was a blessing to us, as he was to so many others in this world. May you feel the breadth of love being poured out for him today, and may God comfort you as you mourn,” Charles added.

Kevin Chamberlain, who played the butler Bertram, shared how Cameron would always light up the room.

“Our ‘Jessie’ family has been devastated by the sad and untimely passing of our beloved Cameron Boyce. He always lit up a room when he entered-he was an extraordinarily talented actor, a selfless advocate with his charity work, and a loyal friend.Our hearts are heavy with sadness,” he wrote.

Chris Galya, who played the bell boy Tony Chiccolini, wrote, “I have no words. I love you brother. The light you spread with every smile. I’m absolutely crushed. ♥️”

Debby Ryan Helped Create 'Jessie' Because She Wasn't Done With Disney Yet

Debby Ryan Helped Create 'Jessie' Because She Wasn't Done With Disney Yet

Debby Ryan has revealed just how Jessie came about.

The 25-year-old Insatiable actress made an appearance on Dax Shepard‘s podcast Armchair Expert, and talked about how she helped her former Disney Channel show come to fruition.

“At 18, the show (The Suite Life On Deck) ended suddenly and internationally at that point, I had also launched Disney Channel Free-to-Air and I had done two films for [Disney Channel] and I produced the second one. My last one repeated better than a lot of their original airing of DCOMs and they were like, ‘I don’t know, there’s something here that works,’” she told the host. “And I was kind of the last person as the Hannah Montanas or whatever phased out and those shows ended and people were very much like, ‘I miss the old Disney, I miss classic Disney.’ And I was kind of the last person with a foot in both worlds. And at 18, [I was] too old to be the lead of a Disney show, but prime age to be a relatable, quirky authority figure.”

“So my showrunner from Suite Life and I requested a meeting with the president of Disney Channel, which I guess I didn’t realize you don’t do at 18,” Debby continued. “But I put on a blazer and I was like, ‘Listen, I’m not done with you guys and I don’t think you’re done with me. We’re doing something it works, let’s do this.’ We pitched them Jessie and they loved it and it’s the first show they ever greenlit without a pilot.”

“We would get buzz that it did significantly well, it premiered very well, it stayed really well, the re-runs did well, on Netflix it was the most watched kids’ show even four years after it went away. And so it had a lot of great success,” she added.

Jessie also went on to produce the spin-off Bunk’d, which just got renewed for a fourth season!

“Today in 2011, Jessie premiered on Disney Channel. I got to pitch, produce and cast my dream job right outta high school with special folks,” Debby wrote on her Twitter.

She added, “The kids were such smol nuggets and each so captivating. Such an adventure and a ride and now they’re all grown and killing it.”

“Our writers, costume, set dec, FX, stunt team, hair/makeup, props, scriptie and every other department created a wonderland of playtime. We shot over 100 episodes across 4 seasons as Disney’s first straight-to-series pickup. I became their youngest female director and producer,” Debby wrote.

She concluded, “We got to open our conversation from adoption to blended families to military families, caretakers, wild pets; Love can look like anything. So if you ever watched, rewatched, quoted, laughed at, learned from, insidejoked with, stayed up for or loved Jessie, thank you. You’re why.”

A 'Jessie' Fan Asked Bertram To Prom & Got Help From Peyton List

Put this Prom ask on the top of the cool list!

One Jessie fan actually asked Kevin Chamberlin, who played butler Bertram, to her prom and got some major help from his co-star Peyton List.

When the fan asked Kevin to her prom, she asked just how many RT’s on social she would need to make it happen and he gave them to her — 100,000 RTs and 500,000 likes — AND IT HAPPENED!

Right now, the Twitter post has over 183,000 RTs and 543,000 likes!

“come through @kevinchamberlin,” Peyton shared on her Twitter, with other fans saying the prom date probably wouldn’t happen — but don’t doubt Kevin.

“Should I wear a classic black tie tux or go retro with top hat and tails?” “I should probably coordinate with you. What color is your dress?” were two of the questions Kevin asked his prom date.

We definitely can’t wait to see if this happens — we’re hoping it really does!
