Netflix and Amazon Prime Video actor Chance Perdomo, known for his roles in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Gen V, has died tragically at the age of 27 after a motorcycle accident.

To 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 most of all, just a very kind and pleasant person.

A spokesperson for Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television added: "The entire Gen V family is devastated by the sudden passing of Chance Perdomo. Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television extend their heartfelt thoughts and support to Chance's family and all who loved him at this Difficult moment".

The actor, who was born in Los Angeles but grew up in Southampton, England, also stars as Ambrose Spellman in the Netflix series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina alongside Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch and Michelle Gomez.

Prior to Sabrina, Chance played the lead role of Jerome Rogers in the BBC Three drama Murdered by My Duty. The talented actor has also appeared in Midsummer Murders, Shakespeare and Hathaway: Private Investigators and Hetty Feather./BGNES
