Twilight and Apocalypse actor Gregory Tyree Boyce died from a drug overdose in his Las Vegas condo on May 13, 2020. He was 30 years old. The Clark County Coroner reported that Boyce took cocaine and fentanyl in what seemed to be an accidental overdosing. In the movie Twilight, relatively new to acting, Boyce played Tyler Crowley, who almost ran over Bella Swan before Edward Cullen single-handedly stopped Crowley’s van.

At the time of his death, Boyce was planning to open his own restaurant. “He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings,” Boyce’s mother Lisa Wayne wrote on Facebook. “He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers.”
