Chance Perdomo (19 October 1996 – 29 or 30 March 2024) was an American and British actor. He earned a British Academy Television Award nomination for his performance in the BBC Three film Killed by My Debt (2018). He gained further prominence through his roles as Ambrose Spellman in the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018–2020) and Andre Anderson in the first season of the Amazon Prime series Gen V (2023).

Early life and education

Perdomo was born in Los Angeles, California, on 19 October 1996. He moved to Southampton in the county of Hampshire, England, with his mother as a child and grew up there.[1] He held both British and American citizenship, and had Latino heritage on his mother's side.[2][3]

Perdomo attended the local Redbridge Community School, where he served as head boy and discovered theatre.[4][5] He then went to Peter Symonds College in Winchester,[6] where he was elected president of the sixth form's student union.[7] Perdomo intended to study law after graduating but decided to pursue acting instead, moving, with money he made working in a shoe shop and at a cinema, to London where he joined the National Youth Theatre and trained at Identity School of Acting.[8]


Perdomo made his television debut with a recurring role as Henry Goodall in the third series of the CBBC adaptation of Hetty Feather, which aired in 2017.[9] This was followed by a lead role as Jerome in the 2018 BBC Three drama film Killed by My Debt.[10] For his performance, Perdomo was nominated for the British Academy Television Award for Best Actor.[11]

In February 2018, it was announced that Perdomo was cast in the series regular role of Ambrose Spellman on the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.[12][13] Reports revealed that Perdomo previously auditioned for the role of Jughead Jones on Riverdale, but the role was given to Cole Sprouse.[14] Perdomo, however, impressed series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with his audition so much that the latter wrote the role of Sabrina's Ambrose with the actor in mind.[15][16]

In 2019, Perdomo was named a Screen International Star of Tomorrow and a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit.[17][18]

Perdomo made his feature film debut as Landon Gibson in After We Fell (2021), the third installment of the After film series. He would reprise his role as Landon in the subsequent two films in the series, After Ever Happy (2022) and After Everything (2023).[19] He voiced Snork in the third season of Finnish television series Moominvalley.[20]

For his final television role, Perdomo starred as Andre Anderson in Gen V, a 2023 spinoff of the superhero series The Boys. After his death, production of the second season was delayed indefinitely.[1]


Perdomo died in a motorcycle crash aged 27. Local authorities confirmed that Perdomo was the sole individual involved in the crash.[1][21] It is believed the crash occurred late on 29 March or early 30 March 2024 while Perdomo was travelling through Upstate New York enroute to Toronto to begin filming for season 2 of Gen V.[22]
