We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother,” they added, per Variety.

Shortly after the tragic news was announced, fans took to social media to express their sadness over the After Ever Happy star’s passing.

The producers of Gen V also paid tribute to Perdomo, describing him as an “enthusiastic force of nature.” 

“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,” they said.
