(USA Today) – Perdomo starred as student Andre Anderson on Prime Video’s “Gen V,” a college-set spinoff of the superhero satire “The Boys.” He was one of the primary characters on the show, which debuted in September and was renewed for a second season.

Previously, Perdomo played Sabrina Spellman’s cousin Ambrose on Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” opposite Kiernan Shipka.

Perdomo’s other roles included Landon Gibson in the romance films “After We Fell,” “After Ever Happy” and “After Everything.” In 2019, he was nominated for a BAFTA TV Award for best actor for his performance in the BBC drama “Killed By My Debt.”

“When I was about two years old, I told mom that I wanted to be two things,” he told BAFTA in 2019. “She said, ‘What do you want to be?’ I said, ‘I want to be the first Black president of the United States, and I want to be on Barney.'”

In a statement shared on social media, the producers of “Gen V” said they “can’t quite wrap our heads around” Perdomo’s unexpected death.
