Perdomo’s infectious personality and passion for acting left a lasting impression on all who knew him. “His warmth will carry on in those who he loved dearest,” a statement from his representatives read.

Adding another heartbreaking layer to the tragedy, one of Perdomo’s last Instagram posts, from March 17, featured a photo of a motorcycle with the caption “Day 77. Final calm before storm. #backontheroad.”

Before captivating audiences as the magnetic Andre Anderson in Gen V, Perdomo charmed viewers as Ambrose Spellman, Sabrina’s loyal cousin in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. He brought a unique blend of wit and compassion to the role, often acting as Sabrina's confidante and protector.

Born in Los Angeles but raised in England, Perdomo initially planned a career in law. However, his passion for acting led him to London, where he honed his craft at the National Youth Theatre and the Identity School of Acting.

While his first major role came in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Perdomo previously auditioned for the iconic part of Jughead Jones in Riverdale. Although the role eventually went to Cole Sprouse, the experience opened doors for Perdomo, catching the eye of series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who later cast him as Ambrose.
