Adam Sandler has included a tribute to Grown Ups co-star Cameron Boyce in his new film Hubie Halloween.
The Descendants star died in his sleep last year aged just 20 of complications due to epilepsy.
The actors starred together in the comedy Grown Ups in 2010 and its sequel in 2013.
Partway through the end credits, a picture of Boyce is shown along with a message calling him ‘one of the kindest, coolest, funniest kids we knew’.
It reads: ‘In loving memory of Cameron Boyce. Gone way too soon and one of the kindest, coolest, funniest, and most talented kids we knew.
‘You live on forever in our hearts and are truly missed every day.’
Fans who saw the beautiful message shared images on Twitter.
Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Uncut Gems star said Cameron was meant to be in Hubie Halloween but died a few days before filming began.
‘That kid was a great kid. His family is amazing. I watched him grow up and become a superstar,’ Adam said.
‘My kids worshipped him. He came to my daughter’s bat mitzvah. He came and literally signed — I mean, that bat mitzvah was gigantic, there were 400 people there, and he signed every kids autograph.
‘He was just the nicest kid. He would always have charities going on. He would always speak to me, ‘Can you do this, can you do that?’ It was always for charity. He never cared about anything else. Just a nice solid, talented kid.’
