Actor Chance Perdomo, who rose to fame as a star of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “Gen V,” has died at age 27 following a motorcycle crash.

“On behalf of the family and his representatives, it is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Chance Perdomo’s untimely passing as a result of a motorcycle accident,” a publicist said in a statement issued Saturday evening.

The statement said no one else was involved in the crash. No details about the crash, including when and where it took place, were immediately released.

Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television, the makers of “Gen V,” said the show’s family was “devastated by the sudden passing.”

“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,” the producers of “Gen V” said in a statement. “Even writing about him in the past tense doesn’t make sense.”

It wasn’t immediately clear from the statements how Mr. Perdomo’s death would affect production on the show, which also featured Jaz Sinclair, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Shelley Conn among its sprawling ensemble cast.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who created “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” posted a tribute to Mr. Perdomo on Instagram on Saturday, sharing behind-the-scenes photos from “Sabrina.”

“Besides being one of the most talented young actors I’ve ever had the privilege to work with, @chance_perdomo was, truly, a light. A generous, funny, open-hearted, wildly intelligent, and fiercely complex and soulful human being,” he wrote.

“Oh, how I wish Aunt Zelda’s words were true today [and perhaps they are]: ‘There is no true death for witches, only transformation,’” he continued. “Rest in peace, Chance. We all loved you so, so much, cousin.”

Mr. Perdomo was born in Los Angeles and raised in England.

“His passion for the arts and insatiable appetite for life was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth will carry on in those who he loved dearest,” the statement from Mr. Perdomo’s publicist said.
