'Gen V' Star Chance Perdomo Dead At 27

Chance Perdomo, star of Amazon’s action show “Gen V,” has died at the age of 27, Deadline reported.

The actor died in a motorcycle accident, his representatives said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. No others were involved in the 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,” Perdomo’s family and representatives wrote in a statement, according to Deadline. “We ask you to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother.”

HuffPost reached out to Perdomo’s representatives for additional information about the accident but did not immediately receive a response.

Perdomo was known for his portrayal of Andre Anderson in “Gen V,” as well as a role in the 2018 Netflix horror series “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

According to Deadline, production of “Gen V”’s second season will be pushed following news of Perdomo’s death.

“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,” the show’s producers wrote in a statement on Instagram. “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.”

In a joint statement from Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, the companies wrote that “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,” the statement said.

Perdomo was born in Los Angeles, California, and later moved to Hampshire, England with his mother, Variety reported. He studied law in college before moving to London to pursue acting, and was offered a role in the British children’s drama series “Hettyfeather.” After appearances in several TV shows and short films, Perdomo landed a role as a series regular in “Sabrina” alongside actors Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch and Jaz Sinclair for four seasons.

In 2019, he was nominated for a BAFTA for best actor in a leading role for his portrayal of Jerome Rogers in the 2018 movie “Killed by My Debt.”
