Actor Chance Perdomo has died aged 27.

The ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ and ‘Gen V’ star was killed in a motorcycle accident, his representatives said on Saturday (30.03.24) – with no one else involved in the tragedy.

They told The Hollywood Reporter: “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.”

Chance most recently featured in Amazon Prime Video’s ‘The Boys’ prequel ‘Gen V’, in which he played student Andre Anderson, whose superpower was magnetic manipulation.

The producers of the series said in a 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.”

Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, which produces ‘Gen V’, said: “The entire Gen V family is devastated by the sudden passing of Chance Perdomo.

“Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television extend our heartfelt thoughts and support to Chance’s family and all who loved him at this difficult time.”

Chance has also played Ambrose Spellman, the cousin of half-witch, half-mortal Sabrina in Netflix’s ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’.

Born in Los Angeles, Chance moved to Southampton, England, with his mum as a child and held British and American citizenship.

He intended to study law but decided to pursue acting – and moved to London with money he made working in a shoe shop and at a cinema where he joined the National Youth Theatre and trained at Identity School of Acting.
