It’s with a heavy heart that I report “Gen V” star Chance Perdomo has died as a result of a motorcycle accident. 

He was 27.

Chance’s publicist confirmed his passing in the following statement:

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Chance Perdomo’s untimely passing as a result of a motorcycle accident.

His passion for the arts and insatiable appetite for life was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth will carry on in those who he loved dearest.

We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother.

Sadly, Chance took to Instagram on March 17 and posted a photo collage that included a motorcycle.

The caption on the post read, “Day 77. Final calm before storm. #backontheroad

Gen V” producers released the following statement:

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.

Even writing about him in the past tense doesn’t make sense.

We are so sorry for Chance’s family, and we are grieving the loss of our friend and colleague. Hug your loved ones tonight.

Chance’s dear friend, Skye P. Marshall, paid tribute to him via Instagram.

27 💔 No, not Chance. I don’t want to believe this. Chance was my baby. A sweet man who’s extraordinarily talented, very intelligent, energetic force of nature with a beautiful vibrant soul.

We would literally light up every single time we saw each other.

The last communication we shared was last month, and my last words to him were, “I love you!” And he knew it.

I’m devastated, as so many are, but I’m not ready to process this.

Sending love to his whole family, his amazing mother who is shattered, and to the #caos friends & fans grieving this massive loss.

Please do not take one day of life for granted! I love you Chancie Pooh.

Born on October 19, 1996, in Los Angeles, Perdomo’s early years saw him relocating with his mother to Southampton, Hampshire, England.

He embarked on his academic journey at Redbridge Community School before furthering his education at Peter Symonds College in Winchester.

Initially set on studying Law, Perdomo’s passion for acting led him to London, where he immersed himself in the craft, honing his skills at the National Youth Theatre and Identity School of Acting.

Perdomo’s career gained momentum with appearances in various television shows and short films.

However, his breakthrough came when he secured a series regular role in “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” alongside stars like Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, and Jaz Sinclair.

Portraying Ambrose Spellman across four seasons from 2018 to 2020, Perdomo’s performance left an indelible mark.

Additionally, his portrayal of Jerome Rogers in the 2018 TV movie “Killed by My Debt” earned him a BAFTA nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

In the Prime Video series “Gen V,” Perdomo portrayed Andre Anderson, a student at Godolkin University gifted with magnetic manipulation abilities.

Production for the second season has been indefinitely postponed following Perdomo’s passing.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to the Perdomo family and all who knew and loved Chance.
