Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Chance Perdomo is dead at age 27.

A publicist for the actor, who starred on Prime Video’s Gen V, confirmed the news on Saturday, March 30.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Chance Perdomo’s untimely passing as a result of a motorcycle accident,” the rep said in a statement to Variety. “Authorities have advised that no other individuals were involved. 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. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother.”

The Gen V producers also released a statement to mourn the young star, who played Andre Anderson. “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 creative team 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.”

The California native moved to England as a child with his mother. He first began studying acting in London at the National Youth Theatre and Identity School of Acting. He made his small screen debut in 2017 on the U.K. series Hetty Feather. One year later, he scored his role on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as Ambrose Spellman. He appeared in all 36 episodes of the Netflix hit and even showed off his singing skills on the show.

He took over the role of Landon Gibson in the After franchise starting with the third film, 2021’s After We Fell. He continued to portray the role in the big screen adaptations of Anna Todd‘s novels in both 2022’s After Ever Happy and 2023’s After Everything.

In an interview with Numéro Netherlands just last month, Perdomo said he was looking forward to a long career in action-adventure roles and hoped to do more of his own stunts.

“Hard hitting drama as well as large scale action is the direction we’re pushing for creatively,” he said in the February profile. “I’m currently training to better allow the insurance of whichever production I work on to subsequently allow me to do that. Whether that takes the form of large budget studio productions or taking things of a more independent nature to market, we’ve got our eyes set on that path.”

While speaking of he future, he added, “I just wrapped production on an action comedy that hasn’t been announced, but I’m excited for audiences to see me in this role. It was one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had. Right now, I’m prepping for Gen V season 2, and there is another potential project for later this year. I like being on the road, if you will.”
