Fans were also very touched by the tribute at the end of the film to the late Cameron Boyce, who was originally cast as the bully in the new film, who was eventually played by Karan Brar. Speaking about the actor, who died aged 20, Adam told Yahoo! Entertainment: "He was supposed to come to do the movie maybe two days after [he died]. He was getting on a plane to come shoot our movie... That was devastating news for his family and for all of us. He was always great to my family."
