Variety is awaiting response from Perdomo’s publicist regarding the location of his death. Representatives for the Los Angeles Police Department were unable to confirm if Perdomo’s death occurred in Los Angeles when reached by Variety Saturday. The LA coroner’s office did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Perdomo was known for his roles as Ambrose Spellman in Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and Andre Anderson in “The Boys” spinoff series “Gen V.”

“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 “Gen V” producers said in a joint statement. “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.”

Perdomo was born on Oct. 19, 1996, in Los Angeles, Calif. As a child, he moved with his mother to Southampton in the county of Hampshire, England, where he attended Redbridge Community School before going to Peter Symonds College in Winchester. Perdomo intended to study Law, but instead moved to London to pursue acting; he joined the National Youth Theatre and trained at Identity School of Acting.

Perdomo appeared in several television shows and short films before he was cast as a series regular in “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” also starring Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch and Jaz Sinclair. He played Ambrose Spellman for four seasons from 2018 to 2020. Perdomo also starred as Jerome Rogers in the 2018 TV movie “Killed by My Debt,” which earned him a BAFTA nomination for best actor in a leading role.

In the Prime Video series “Gen V,” Perdomo played Andre Anderson, a student at Godolkin University who harnesses magnetic manipulation abilities. Production on the second season has been delayed indefinitely following Perdomo’s death.

On the film side, Perdomo worked on the “After” series, led by Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin. He portrayed Landon Gibson in “After We Fell” (2021), “After Ever Happy” (2022) and “After Everything” (2023).
