Chance Perdomo, Rising Star of ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ and ‘Gen V,’ Dies at 27

The fashion world mourns the devastating loss of Chance Perdomo, the charismatic young actor who lit up the screen in cult favorite shows like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the recent Gen V series. At just 27 years old, Perdomo’s bright future was tragically cut short in a fatal motorcycle accident.

With his sparkling presence and undeniable talent, Perdomo had swiftly become a rising style icon, dazzling on every red carpet. His casually cool aesthetic blended vintage influences with modern edge, cementing his status as one to watch in the realm of fashion. He possessed an effortless ability to blend high and low, pairing designer suits with vintage tees or elegant dresses with edgy moto jackets. Perdomo’s bold sartorial choices always kept fans on their toes, eager to see what boundary-pushing look he would unveil next.

“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 he loved dearest,” read a heartfelt statement from his representatives. As the fashion community mourns this tragic loss, many are reflecting on the bright light Perdomo brought to the world through his iconic roles and signature style.

On the critically acclaimed Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Perdomo stole scenes as the witty warlock Ambrose Spellman, Sabrina’s beloved cousin. With his tousled locks and vintage-inspired layers, Ambrose’s distinctive look was incredibly influential in reviving 1960s mod style for a new generation. More recently, Perdomo channeled cool jock vibes as the hunky Andre on Amazon’s Gen V, sporting athleisure looks that were equal parts sporty and stylish.

The fashion influencer had an innate ability to make any outfit his own through his magnetic screen presence and confident flair. “We can’t quite wrap our heads around this,” shared Gen V producers. “For those of us who knew 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.”

Born in Los Angeles, the bi-coastal trendsetter split his time between New York and London, seamlessly embodying a fashionable transcontinental aesthetic. Having initially aspired to a career in law, Perdomo’s acting prowess was discovered quite by chance through an audition for Riverdale. Though he didn’t land that role, the encounter led to his big break as Ambrose on the Sabrina series.

In a 2022 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Perdomo shared, “I’m not even mad about missing Riverdale – I grew up watching Cole and Dylan Sprouse, so to have come close and then book an equally iconic show still feels like a full circle moment.” The humble star stayed true to himself through his meteoric rise, garnering a devoted following of fans who admired his bold style as much as his grounded persona.

As loved ones, colleagues, and fans alike grapple with this heartbreaking loss, Chance Perdomo’s daring fashion sense and magnetic spirit will carry on as an enduring inspiration. The bright star burned far too briefly in our skies, but shone brilliantly while lit.
