Kiernan Shipka Pays Tribute to Chance Perdomo: ‘His Humanity Was a Generous Gift’

Kiernan Shipka has paid tribute to her “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” co-star Chance Perdomo, who died at the age of 27 following a motorcycle accident.

“Chancey Pants. Oh man this hurts,” Shipka wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “He was a one of a kind soul. Just the most fiery, creative, loving, connected, and caring force you could possibly imagine…”

She continued, “As playful as he was kind. As loving as he was hilarious. He never failed to make me laugh and he never failed to keep me on my toes (or off of them if he was giving me a piggyback ride to my trailer which he often did. Thanks Chance.)”

Perdomo played Ambrose Spellman, the warlock cousin of Shipka’s character Sabrina, for four seasons from 2018 to 2020.

Shipka concluded her tribute to Perdomo by writing: “His humanity was a generous gift to me and to so many people. Really hard to picture this world without him in it. I loved him with my whole heart. I always will.”

In addition to “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” Perdomo was a series regular on “The Boys” spinoff series “Gen V.” On Monday, several “Gen V” cast members shared a joint statement on social media paying tribute to their late co-star.

“Our hearts are with Chance’s loved ones as we grieve this shocking loss,” the statement reads. “We will remember the special moments we had together, his infectious smile that could light up any room, his warm hugs and the authenticity he carried with him always. Rest in peace dear friend, you will be deeply missed. Love, The ‘Gen V’ Cast.”
