Cameron Boyce is an American actor and dancer. His father is black, of Afro-Caribbean and African-American descent. His mother, who is white, is Ashkenazi Jewish (of Hungarian Jewish, Russian Jewish, Lithuanian Jewish, and German Jewish descent).

A picture of Cameron’s parents can be seen here. A picture of Cameron’s paternal grandparents can be seen here.

Cameron has said, “I like to say that I’m bl-ewish, I’m black and I’m Jewish. So you know, me and Drake, we got that in common.”

Cameron’s paternal grandfather is Victor Elliott Boyce. Victor was from the Caribbean.

Cameron’s paternal grandmother is Jo Ann Crozier Allen (the daughter of Herbert Allen and Alice Josephine Hopper). Jo Ann was born in Clinton, Tennessee. In 1956, Jo Ann was one of the “Clinton Twelve”, one of twelve students who were the first group of African-American students to attend a desegregated high school in the Southern U.S. (Clinton High School).

Cameron’s maternal grandfather was Roger Small (the son of Marvin Small, born Marvin Stanley Smallheiser, and of Blanche D. Abrams). Roger Small was one of the early founding members of Temple Emanuel in Greater New Haven, Connecticut. Marvin was born in New York, to Hungarian Jewish parents, Maximillian Smallheiser and Lottie Schoenberger. Blanche was born in New York, the daughter of Louis Abrams and Marion Mazer, who were of Russian Jewish descent.

Cameron’s maternal grandmother is Joan Berland (the daughter of Irving Louis Berland and Beryl Wormser). Irving was a Jewish immigrant from Vilna, Lithuania, and the son of Samuel Berland and Hannah Horowitz. Beryl was born in Pennsylvania, the daughter of Morris Wormser, who was born in New York, to German Jewish parents, and of Sadie Goltman, who was born in Glasgow, Scotland, also to German Jewish parents.

Knew this kid was part Black. Only mixed-race kids (usually the natural red-heads) get freckles like that. His hair texture is surprising, though. But I suspect with ‘Crozier’ in his lineage and his Grandfather being born in the U.K., he has a lot of white blood in him.

brazilian look

Connerfromvine March 12, 2016 at 9:50 am

He and his sister have similar features and hair, she has darker skin tho

Greyface March 12, 2016 at 3:36 pm

wow the most beautiful family I have ever seen!

phaedra March 12, 2016 at 12:31 am

He looked Mestizo to me. Never knew that he was half black. :/

Greyface March 10, 2016 at 10:49 am

I wish my wife resembled him more, Cameron Boyce is the ideal beauty!!!

fuzzybear44 March 10, 2016 at 1:00 pm

I take it, your wife a man

cinnamongirlz February 7, 2016 at 6:20 am

I had no idea whatsoever that this cute little kid was black. I thought he was just a freckle faced white boy. Then I saw a Disney “African American Month” ad, and the Clinton 5, and it was his paternal grandmother and I was amazed. His grandmother is very fair though.

kittyjar October 31, 2015 at 7:29 am

That’s an old picture. He’s really good looking now

Justinian October 30, 2015 at 1:37 am

His facial features show clear Sub-Saharan African ancestry.

ashash September 30, 2015 at 9:41 pm

He is not good-looking.

TokioJapon September 14, 2015 at 9:36 pm

I love that White people don’t know how being mixed race works and that it has tons of variables so they can’t understand how this attractive and ostensibly White actor is half black. XDDD It really cracks me up how White people are raised so close-minded…

TokioJapon September 14, 2015 at 9:34 pm

That’s creepy. And racist as all hell.

hesh123 September 15, 2015 at 4:46 am

You just called an entire race of people “closed minded” but he’s the racist one for saying exotic? loooool wtf

Connerfromvine January 3, 2016 at 2:35 am

The only creepy person here is tokyojapan. probably a stalker too

sparkles180 August 20, 2015 at 1:48 am

He looks so annoying

M June 8, 2015 at 7:52 am

He looks Puerto Rican.

midori29 May 26, 2015 at 5:38 pm

Very odd looking indeed

alberto.r7 April 6, 2015 at 3:31 pm

He seems to be a pale multirracial boy like he really is. Nobody with two eyes on the face can say that he is white.

Capricious April 1, 2015 at 10:20 pm

My first impression of him is a mix of Jewish, German and Mestizo.

WTF August 17, 2014 at 4:59 am

he looks weird

ssempre July 11, 2014 at 11:02 pm

He has african bone structure and nose shape but he doesn’t have the coloring or hair texture, at first glance, he looks white but when you look at his features, you can tell he’s mixed.

Nikki April 20, 2014 at 8:10 pm

he doesnt look mixed. he looks kinda italian or english or german AND african american and ashkanazi jewish

ihatemostpeople May 1, 2014 at 4:53 pm

You are an idiot. You just contradicted yourself, fool. First you stated that he doesn’t look mixed, THEN you stated he looks part African American. That means he does look mixed. My god, there are some dumbass people on this site.

Nikki May 4, 2014 at 12:17 am

Aww thanks! You’re stupid as hell too!

Nikki May 7, 2014 at 5:45 pm

Some people can have african-american blood without being mixed. I am a little african american and you would just think im european! There are some dumbass people like you (ihatemostpeople)

Nikki May 7, 2014 at 5:46 pm

and i never said he looks part. he could be 2% for all i know

Michella Murphy July 11, 2014 at 8:32 pm

But it was stated that his dad is African American! maybe you have a problem with reading and/or understanding.

Check7t March 29, 2014 at 9:51 pm

He does not look white, anybody who thinks so is blind.

ihatemostpeople May 1, 2014 at 4:54 pm

For once I agree with you. He clearly looks part black.

Nikki May 7, 2014 at 5:47 pm

You two are retarded. he clearly is a white person and not mixed at all. you both are saying that for attention. Idiots

mrsboycexox0 May 7, 2014 at 9:09 pm

well its actually try his dad is african american and his mom is jewish… therefore he is a mixed child EVERYONE knows!

meladean August 22, 2014 at 3:13 pm

oh my gosh you sound so stupid. how is he not mixed at all if his father is African-American ( BLACK) ??????? idiot.

sweetipie1985 March 27, 2014 at 7:07 am

He’s a cute kid. I can tell that he’s biracial, Some of my family members are mixed race..

Check7t March 21, 2014 at 6:03 am

That boy don’t look white, he looks visibly part Negroid. Just because he has skin tone similar to a white person doesn’t make him white, if that was the case then East Asians would be white.

Look at his facial features, clearly mixed.

saafar January 13, 2014 at 3:22 pm

is he adopted because he really doesn’t look like he would be a mixture of African

fuzzybear44 January 14, 2014 at 3:18 am
ihatemostpeople February 1, 2014 at 11:39 am

He looks a little bit black. He does NOT look 100% white to me.

Gurrl February 16, 2014 at 1:54 am

His mixture is obvious to be. His smile and rounded button nose look afro-influenced.

Angelalibohova April 13, 2014 at 2:36 am

lol he does not look 100% white. He looks mixed

ihatemostpeople May 1, 2014 at 5:07 pm

I never said he looked 100% white, fucking moron. Why don’t you learn how to read before you type ignorant shit. I said he does NOT. KEYWORD: NOT. He does NOT NOT NOT NOT look 100% black. I said he looks a little black. READ NEXT TIME, BITCH.

mrsboycexox0 May 17, 2014 at 1:44 pm

no he’s not adopted

Kiara January 8, 2014 at 6:13 pm

If you don’t have anything nice to say about Cameron Boyce go suck a dick. Seriously, he don’t need people hating on him. Cameron is so cute & I like him! So anybody else who insults my man is going to get slapped in their face. I don’t want nobody talking about my man like that.

The Beautiful Ones December 11, 2013 at 9:20 am

could this kid get any uglier, seriously!

notracist January 31, 2014 at 4:21 pm

well why don’t you go look in the mirror asshole

J.J. December 10, 2013 at 6:41 pm

correction; his eyes are hazel and his hair is brunet (male)

mrsboycexox0 May 17, 2014 at 1:46 pm

his eyes are light brown not hazel

J.J. May 17, 2014 at 7:44 pm

hazel is light brown, what colour’s a hazelnut?
