Dove Cameron and Booboo Stewart stepped out in Hollywood, California on Wednesday (July 24), to help celebrate their Descendants director Kenny Ortega as he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
At the ceremony, Dove and Booboo were also joined by Monique Coleman, who starred in the High School Musical series directed by Kenny, and their late co-star Cameron Boyce‘s father Victor Boyce and sister Maya Boyce, as they honored Cameron during the ceremony.
“Sitting here today with us is my buddy Cameron Boyce’s dad Victor and his sister Maya,”Kenny said during his speech. “Cameron Boyce was so excited for me and wanted to be here, but he isn’t here today. His all-too brief appearance in this life inspired me beyond words and many of us here and generations of kids and families all over the world.”
“His extraordinary talent and loving heart will be remembered through his foundation, The Cameron Boyce Foundation, and has been set up by his family to remember Cameron by continuing his pursuit to make positive change in the world. Cameron said, ‘We can’t take it with us, so it’s about what you leave.’”
