Victor’s heartbreaking post attracted comments from many, including Cameron’s Descendants costar Dove Cameron. The Cruel Intentions star, for her part, indicated in her response how it was tough being “away” from her 7-year-old son, Arthur, while “in treatment” amid her multiple sclerosis battle. She then noted that she understood “how fragile life is for the greatest light bearers.”

“He will not be forgotten at our home In our hearts,” Blair said of Cameron to the late actor’s dad. “Arthur had his first real role model [in Cameron]. He talked to everyone about him. And his family and his grandma and sister and everything we read last year. Arthur wanted to know as much as he could. Your son just had soulful and kind layers that were revealing more and more of what an amazing creation he is. He always will be.”

Blair continued to express how she wished she could take on some of the burden of Victor’s pain. “I can’t touch your grief. I will fall. I wish I could. I wish I could carry some. It would be an honor. A true honor,” she added. “Alas, a parent wakes alone with their child in the unknown it seems. But he lived so many lives in this one. And you all made a great one. I am sorry. I am sorry. I am here. If I ever can do anything. Sending love.”
