His family said then that he’d suffered a seizure due to “an ongoing medical condition”.

On Tuesday, a coroner in Los Angeles said Cameron’s cause of death had been ­determined, calling it a “sudden unexpected death in epilepsy”.

A post mortem was carried out on July 8 but further testing was needed to establish the cause of death. His manner of death was “natural”, the coroner said.

Cameron played Luke Ross in Jessie, and Carlos in Descendants, the TV movie series about the children of Disney villains. He had appeared on screen from the age of nine.
