Chance Perdomo, Star of 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' and 'Gen V,' Dies in Motorcycle Crash at 27

Windsor, England, — The entertainment world mourns the untimely loss of Chance Perdomo, a rising star known for his captivating performances in popular streaming television shows.

At the tender age of 27, Perdomo's life was tragically cut short in a motorcycle accident that has left fans and colleagues reeling.

Born in Los Angeles but raised in the English city of Southampton, Chance Perdomo made an indelible mark on the entertainment industry.

His talent transcended borders, and his versatility as an actor garnered critical acclaim. Perdomo's journey began with roles that showcased his depth and charisma, captivating audiences worldwide.

Perdomo's portrayal of Andre Anderson in the superhero show Gen V catapulted him into the spotlight.

The series, a spin-off of the satirical TV hit The Boys, explored the lives of extraordinary individuals grappling with their powers and responsibilities.

As Andre, Perdomo harnessed magnetic manipulation abilities, captivating viewers with his nuanced performance.

Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, the makers of Gen V, expressed their shock and grief:

"We can't quite wrap our heads around this. For those of us who knew him and worked with him, Chance was always charming and smiling, an enthusiastic force of nature, an incredibly talented performer, and more than anything else, just a very kind, lovely person."

Perdomo's impact extended beyond the superhero genre. In Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, he portrayed Ambrose Spellman, a pansexual warlock and Sabrina's cousin.

His character, often the voice of reason, navigated the dark and mystical world of witches. The show, a darker adaptation of Sabrina The Teenage Witch, concluded in 2020 after four gripping seasons.

In an interview, Perdomo revealed how he related to Ambrose's struggle: "I was always getting into fights until I put my energy into acting. Then my grades picked up, and I became president of the student union. Before that, I was similar to Ambrose—so pent up. He doesn't know what to do with his energy because he's trapped. At the same time, he's very open and loving.

I identify with that now more than ever, because being away from family for so long really puts things into perspective. No matter the occasion, if I get that FaceTime or phone call from mom or my brothers, I'm picking it up right away. It's family first for Ambrose, and I'm the same way."

Perdomo's talent did not go unnoticed. In 2019, he was recognized as a Bafta Breakthrough Brit. His performance in the BBC's Killed By My Debt earned him a best actor Bafta nomination.

His star was on the ascent, and the industry eagerly awaited his next move.

As the news of Perdomo's passing reverberates through Hollywood, fans and fellow actors share their grief.

His warmth, passion for the arts, and insatiable appetite for life will echo in the hearts of those who loved him dearest. The motorcycle accident that claimed his life leaves a void—an unfinished story of promise and potential.
