‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ and ‘Gen V’ star Chance Perdomo dies at 27 in motorcycle crash.

A motorbike crash killed 27-year-old “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “Gen V” star Chance Perdomo. “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,” a publicist stated Saturday night.

The statement indicated the crash affected no one else. No crash information, including time and location, were provided immediately.

Perdomo plays Andre Anderson in the first season of “Gen V,” Amazon Prime's college-centric spin-off of “The Boys,” set in a universe where superheroes are celebrities and behave as terribly as the worst. Godolkin University, founded by the evil Vought International corporation, was where "supes" train, and Perdomo's power was metal manipulation.

Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, which made “Gen V,” said the show's family was “devastated by the sudden passing.” “We can’t comprehend this. The creators of “Gen V” claimed Chance was always cheerful and smiling, an energetic force of nature, a tremendously gifted actor, and most of all, a genuinely nice, loving person. “Even writing about him in the past tense makes no sense.”

From the statements, it wasn't apparent how Perdomo's death would effect the show's production, which also starred Jaz Sinclair, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Shelley Conn. Schwarzenegger posted images of himself and Perdomo on Instagram stories Sunday morning, wishing him “up in heaven with a cigar.”

Perdomo was well known for playing “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” lead Ambrose Spellman. The four-season show was nothing like Melissa Joan Hart's “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's Netflix show positioned its Archie Comics characters a town over from “Riverdale,” and had a more eerie and sexual tone than its predecessor, despite several of the original “Sabrina” performers came knocking.

Perdomo was a powerful, pansexual necromantic warlock who was Sabrina Spellman's cousin and initially under house arrest. On the 2020-ended show, he was a guiding light. Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Tati Gabrielle, Ross Lynch, and Sinclair also appeared.

Aguirre-Sacasa posted behind-the-scenes “Sabrina” photographs on Instagram on Saturday to honor Perdomo. @chance_perdomo was a light and one of the best young performers I've worked with. A generous, hilarious, open-hearted, tremendously intelligent, ferociously complex, and soulful person, he wrote.

I wish Aunt Zelda's words were true today (and they may be): ‘There is no genuine death for witches, only transformation,’.” Rest in peace, Chance. Dear cousin, we loved you so much.” Perdomo, Black and Latino, was raised in England and born in Los Angeles.

“I was always fighting until I started acting. My grades improved, and I became student union president. Before that, I was pent-up like Ambrose. “He’s trapped and doesn’t know what to do with his energy,” Perdomo told them.us in 2018.

He's open and loving. Being away from family for so long puts things in perspective, therefore I relate to it more than ever. No matter the situation, I answer mom or brothers' FaceTime or phone calls immediately. Like Ambrose, I prioritize family,” he said. 

Perdomo appeared in multiple “After” films and will star in “Bad Man” with Seann William Scott and Rob Riggle. “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 he loved dearly,” Perdomo's spokesperson stated.
