The statement read: “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.”

In their own statement, Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, which also produces Gen V, added: “The entire Gen V family is devastated by the sudden passing of Chance Perdomo. Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television extend our heartfelt thoughts and support to Chance’s family and all who loved him at this difficult time.”

Production has been halted on a second season.

The British-American star won the award for Best Actor at the 2019 Bafta TV awards for his role in BBC Three drama Killed By My Debt.

Perdomo studied law at university after leaving school and began his acting career in 2017 with a part in CBBC series, Hetty Feather.

Perdomo spoke to NME in 2019 about The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina

Speaking about his character’s difficult storylines in the show, he said: “I live for the tougher scenes. You get to really see who the character is, and how they handle themselves.

“The internal environment really comes out into the forefront…It’s very satisfying to be able to see Ambrose come into action…because I feel like it’s kind of necessary for it to get darker for him. He’s reconciling pieces of his past, and journeys into this world as a free man.”
