Actor Gregory Tyree Boyce, most known for his role as Tyler Crowley in the first Twilight film, was found dead along with his girlfriend, Natalie Adepoju.
They were found at a home in Las Vegas and authorities say the incident “was not criminal.” Their cause of death has not been announced by the coroner’s office as of yet.
Boyce’s Twilight character, Tyler, was the student who almost hit Bella (Kristen Stewart) with his car.
His mother, Lisa Boyce, honored him in a Facebook post, stating that he was working to open a wing spot with sauces named for West Coast rappers.
“He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings. He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers. Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc,” Wayne wrote. “He had flavors like, Tequila Lime Agave…those were my favorite. A Hennessy Maple flavor, oh man, just so damn good. I can say that my son was my favorite chef. He was on to something great and that was his passion.”
Boyce just turned 30 in December. On his birthday her wrote on Instagram, “At one point I didn’t think I would make it to see 30 years old. Over the years like everyone else I have made mistakes along the way, but today is one of those days I only reflect on the great ones. What a time to be alive.”
