Chance Perdomo Remembered by ‘Gen V’ Co-Stars: “This Hurts. A Lot”

Members of Prime Video‘s Gen V and The Boys took to social media this weekend to remember their late co-star, Chance Perdomo, who recently died in a motorcycle accident.

Perdomo was 27. He was best known for playing Andre Anderson in Gen V, a popular student at Godolkin University who is capable of magnetically manipulating things. The actor also appeared in Ambrose Spellman in Netflix‘s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Ambrose was the cousin of protagonist Sabrina, played by Kiernan Shipka.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, Perdomo’s Gen V co-star who portrays Luke, Andre’s best friend, posted on his Instagram Stories Sunday with several photos of himself and his late friend, the last with the message, “Hope you’re up in heaven with a cigar.”

Schwarzenegger later posted to X, formerly Twitter, “This hurts. A lot. What a young talented actor, and a great friend – gone way too soon.”

He also added that Perdomo was “a pleasure to work with.”

A statement from Perdomo’s reps confirming his death on Saturday noted that the actor’s “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.” It continued, “We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother.”

Elsewhere on social media, The Boys star Antony Starr, called Perdomo’s passing “so goddamn tragic.” Gen V is a spinoff series of The Boys; Starr also appeared in the season one finale of Gen V.

The Boys stars Erin Moriarty, Jack Quaid and Karen Fukuhara also re-shared Prime Video’s Instagram tributes to Perdomo on their own accounts on Sunday.

Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos also took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late actor this weekend, writing, “Chance was a gifted young actor lost too early. He was so great to work with on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Everyone at Netflix is sending love and strength to Chance’s entire family and his big family of friends.”
