Bafta nominee Chance Perdomo was best known for his role in Netflix horror series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but had one of his earliest breaks on stage at Mayflower Theatre in Southampton.

His death aged 27 was confirmed by his publicist on Saturday, March 30. The authorities said no other individuals were involved.

"Our sincere condolences and thoughts are with his family and friends at this time."

In 2013, he played the lead role in Mayflower Theatre’s first summer youth production of Bugsy Malone.

After spells with the National Youth Theatre and Identity School of Acting, as well as studying for a law degree, he starred in CBBC’s Hetty Feather.

But his big break came when he landed the role of Ambrose Spellman in the Netflix reboot of the Sabrina the Teenage Witch franchise, which first aired in 2018.

Perdomo was recognised as a Bafta Breakthrough Brit in 2019 and was also nominated for best actor at the Bafta TV awards the same year for his role in BBC Three drama Killed by My Debt.

Chance was most recently known for playing Andre Anderson in the superhero show Gen V, a spin-off of the satirical TV series The Boys.
