Chance’s Gen V. family shared heartfelt messages upon learning of the actor’s death. Gen V. producers released a joint statement:

“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. 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.”

As if starring in two hit streaming shows wasn’t enough, Perdomo also snagged a starring role in the hit Netflix film franchiseAfter, where he played Landon. The role of Landon was originally given to Shane Paul McGhie, but there was a huge shakeup when filming locations had to change because of the COVID-19 pandemic. McGhie was in the first two films, but Chance was in the final three.

At this time, we do not know what caused Perdomo’s accident, and no details have been released. The only thing that has been confirmed is that no one else was involved in the deadly crash.

We extend our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and costars of Chance Perdomo.
