Gen V Star Chance Perdomo Dies In Motorcycle Accident, Was 27

"Hug your loved ones tonight," the producers behind Gen V said.


Chance Perdomo, one of the leads in Prime Video's Gen V and Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, died on Saturday in a motorcycle accident. Perdomo was 27.

Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television said in a statement that, "The entire Gen V family is devastated by the sudden passing of Chance Perdomo. A statement from the team behind Gen V specifically said, "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 statement continued: "We are so sorry for Chance's family, and we are grieving the loss of our friend and colleague. Hug your loved ones tonight."

The Gen V cast was supposed assemble in Toronto on March 30 for the first Season 2 table read. Filming was due to begin on April 8, but has now been delayed indefinitely, according to Deadline. Perdomo's representatives confirmed that no one else was involved in the motorcycle crash, which is believed to have taken place in upstate New York as Perdomo was traveling to Toronto.

Perdomo starred on Chilling Adventures of Sabria as Ambrose Spellman and portrayed Andre Anderson on Gen V, which is a spin-off of The Boys. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ran for two seasons and ended in 2020. As mentioned, Gen V was due to begin production on Season 2 soon, and Perdomo had previously discussed plans for where he wanted to see Andre go in the sophomore season.

Born on October 19, 1996 in Los Angeles, Perdomo relocated to Southampton, England as a child. At school, he intended to study law before moving to London to become an actor, according to Variety.

Beyond Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Gen V, Perdomo earned a BAFTA TV award nomination for Killed by My Debt. He was nominated alongside Hugh Grant, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Lucian Msamati in the Best Leading Actor category.

Perdomo also starred in the 2021 movie After We Fell. Earlier this year, Perdomo was cast in the action-comedy Bad Man.

Variety's Jennifer Maas said of Perdomo, "In the brief intersection of life I had with him, I saw his light and his potential and his humor and his kindness and how much he deserved more than he will ever get. And I mourn that, just as I'm sure many fans do."
