The renowned British-American actor, Chance Perdomo, known for his work in Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and Amazon’s “Gen V,” died tragically in a motorcycle accident at the age of 27 on March 30, 2024.

The accident took place in upstate New York, terminating a promising career that had already made a considerable impact in the realms of television and film.

Perdomo was traveling to Toronto for a script read-through for “Gen V’s” second season when the fatal accident occurred. His representatives affirmed that no other person was involved in the accident. The actor had recently posted a photograph on Instagram with a motorcycle, indicating his readiness for the forthcoming season of “Gen V,” a period he referred to as the “final calm before storm.”

Reactions to Perdomo’s untimely death have been marked by deep sorrow within the entertainment industry. His representatives, colleagues, and the producers of “Gen V” commemorated his infectious energy, kindness, and significant talent. The producers of “Gen V” said, “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.” Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos also paid tribute to Perdomo, remembering him as a “gifted young actor” who was a pleasure to work with on “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

Perdomo, who was born in Los Angeles, California on October 19, 1996, and raised in England, opted for acting over a potential law career post-schooling. His roles resonated with diverse audiences, earning him recognition as an actor in the United States. His portrayal of Ambrose Spellman, a pansexual warlock in “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” received widespread praise, demonstrating his ability to infuse his performances with personal and societal complexities.

Perdomo’s career spanned an array of projects beyond his most recognized roles. These included a BAFTA-nominated performance in the BBC drama “Killed by My Debt,” appearances in “The Cipher,” “Moominvalley,” “Midsomer Murders,” “Hetty Feather,” and the film series “After” based on popular books. In light of Perdomo’s sudden death, Amazon and the producers of “Gen V” have decided to delay the production of the show’s second season indefinitely, which underscores the magnitude of the loss to the entertainment industry.

The passing of Perdomo has elicited a wave of tributes and condolences from fans, co-workers, and loved ones who remember him for his contributions to the arts and his vibrant spirit. His team released a statement saying, “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.” This sentiment has been mirrored across the industry, with many requesting privacy and respect for the family during this difficult time.
