Broadway also shared a personal tribute to Perdomo, sharing a handwritten message on Instagram which read: "Chance possessed so many interpersonal gifts that I treasured deeply. He was a vital part of my growth as an individual, his gentle spirit lifting me up when I needed it most.

"To me, he was and always will be my superhero. I am in shock and grieving his loss deeply. Rest in peace, dear Chance. You will forever hold a special place in my heart. I love you."

Sean Patrick Thomas, who stars as the father of Perdomo's character, also shared a tribute to his Instagram, writing: "Chance. Blinding intellect. Encyclopedic knowledge of hip hop. Raw talent.

He continued: "You were destined to make yourself unforgettable in this world, and in a brief time you achieved it. You ran your race with style my man. I'll miss our long talks friend."

"Devastated at the loss of Chance Perdomo, a beautiful being taken far too soon," Shelley Conn wrote in her own tribute, adding that her thoughts were "full of his family, friends and loved ones."

Perdomo was best known for his role in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as Ambrose Spellman, appearing in all four seasons.

He also played the role of Landon Gibson in the After movie series before more recently appearing as Andre Anderson in Gen V. Production on the second series of the Prime Video has since been been delayed indefinitely.

Amazon Prime Video has also shared their condolences to Perdomo's family in a statement, writing: "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, and 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."
