 April 3, 2024

Rising young Hollywood actor Chance Perdomo, who starred in Amazon Prime's "Gen V" and Netflix's "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" passed away at the age of 27 following a motorcycle accident on Saturday, according to The Hill.

A publicist for Perdomo said in a statement, "On behalf of the family and his representatives, 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," the statement added. "We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother."

Producers of current show "devastated" by the unexpected loss

According to the Associated Press, Perdomo's publicist noted in the statement that nobody else had been involved in the motorcycle accident that claimed the young actor's life.

The California-born and U.K.-raised Perdomo was perhaps best known for his starring role in Amazon Prime's "Gen V," a spinoff of the irreverent and satirical anti-superhero series "The Boys," which involves college-aged superheroes training to use their superpowers.

In a statement released by Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, the producers of "Gen V" said they were "devastated by the sudden passing" of the young star.

"We can’t quite wrap our heads around this," the statement said. "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."

Promising young career cut short

Before joining the cast of "Gen V," Perdomo starred in the "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" Netflix series, a darker version of the 1990s sitcom "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," per the AP.

He was also known for starring in a trilogy of romance films titled "After We Fell," "After Ever Happy," and "After Everything," according to his IMDb page.

Perdomo had a total of 15 credited appearances to his name, including the 2018 British TV film "Killed by My Debt," for which he was nominated the following year for a BAFTA TV Award as Best Leading Actor.

Friends and colleagues share their grief

USA Today reported that some of Perdomo's colleagues and friends shared their sadness and condolences over the loss, including "Sabrina" co-star Kiernan Shipka, who said, "He was a one-of-a-kind soul. Just the most fiery, creative, loving, connected, and caring force you could possibly imagine," and added, "His humanity was a generous gift to me and to so many people. Really hard to picture this world without him in it."

Patrick Schwarzenegger, a "Gen V" co-star, said in an X post that Perdomo was a "young talented actor" and a "great friend" who was "Gone way too soon. Was a pleasure to work with him in 'Gen V.' RIP Chance."

Also speaking out was Perdomo's "After" trilogy co-star, Kiana Madeira, who said, "It doesn’t make sense how a person with SO much life and joy and exuberance can be gone from this planet without a warning. But this is true to human life, and as I reflect on who Chance was and how he lived, I am inspired and in awe."

"I think I can speak for anyone who had the honor of meeting Chance. He truly lit up every single room he entered with his smile, his genuine and caring eyes, and his love for pranks and cracking jokes. From the moment I met him he made me feel safe, seen, and heard," she added. "His presence was warm and his love was abundant. As an artist, Chance was a firecracker. Improv King. A dream actor to work alongside. A wonderful friend, son, and brother."
