An up-and-coming actor has passed away much too soon. Late this week, we received news that Gregory Tyree Boyce, best-know for playing Tyler Crowley opposite Kristen Stewart’s character Bella Swan in Twilight, has passed away at the age of 30.
His body was discovered in Las Vegas, along with the body of his girlfriend, 27-year-old Natalie Adenike Adepoju on May 13th. The cause of death is still pending.
In recent months, Boyce made plans to launch a wings business with flavors named after west coast rappers.
Boyce’s mother, Lisa Wayne, penned a touching tribute on Facebook that reads, in part:
“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. Boy. Why did you leave me.”
All of us here at Dread Central send our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of both Gregory Tyree Boyce and Natalie Adenike Adepoju.
