Cameron Boyce’s roommates Karan Brar and Sophie Reynolds have paid tribute to the late actor on Instagram. Back in May, the three long-time friends moved in together.
“Oh, and btw, we’re roommates now,” Brar captioned a pic of the three friends with Boyce in the center holding a key.
“Now that we’re officially roommates, I am officially Schmidt,” Boyce captioned a different Instagram photo of himself, Brar, and Reynolds, making a reference to Max Greenfield’s New Girl character.
Boyce passed away in his sleep on Saturday, July 6. TMZ reported that he was found unresponsive by one of his roommates who called 911. Paramedics were unable to revive Boyce, who was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unknown which one of Boyce’s roommates found him.
It was also reported that Boyce had previously been diagnosed with epilepsy.

“I love you. You’re the greatest brother I could’ve ever asked for, and I will forever feel lucky to have you in my life. Happy birthday. That’s all. (Think you can tell Cam’s better at sappy posts than I am),” he captioned the photo.
