“Twilight” actor Gregory Tyree Boyce has died at age 30.
Boyce is best known for his role as Tyler Crowley in the “Twilight” franchise. Over the weekend, his mother, Lisa Wayne, shared the news in a heartbreaking post to social media.
She said her son was an incredible chef and was chasing his passion and starting a chicken wing business, West Wings.
“He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers,” she wrote. “Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc. He had flavors like, Tequila Lime Agave... those were my favorite.”
She added: “I’m sick without you. I’m torn, I’m lost. I’m in pain. I’d text you or call you when I was broken or worried about something, and you’d tell me, Ma, I got you, we’ll get thru this together.”
Wayne said she last saw her son on Mother’s Day. “I went to your house to eat leftovers from Mother’s day, we watched a Dave Chappelle show and you walked me to my car, hugged me, kissed me on my cheek and told me that you love me and to call you when I got home,” she wrote.
Boyce’s last post on Instagram was of him and Adepoju on Mother’s Day.
Adepoju’s family wrote in a GoFundMe post seeking help with memorial costs that she was a “loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin and friend.”
“Natalie had so much life to live we are saddened that her life was cut short,” it said. “Natalie leaves behind her one and only baby boy Egypt, her father, 2 brothers and 1 sister, and a host of family and friends who love her dearly.”
Boyce is survived by his 10-year-old daughter, Alaya.
The cause of death has not yet been disclosed.
