Following the death of Gen V star Chance Perdomo, his co-stars from that series along with Amazon Prime Video's The Boys paid tribute to their fallen colleague on social media.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, the actor behind Gen V's Luke Riordan/Golden Boy, shared his response to the news on X (formerly Twitter), bluntly stating how much he was hurting and calling Perdomo "a great friend:"

"This hurts. A lot. What a young talented actor, and a great friend - gone way too soon. Was a pleasure to work with him in 'Gen V.' RIP Chance"

Emma Meyer actress Lizzie Broadway shared a heartfelt note on her Instagram page, sharing how his passing "left a profound void in [her] heart" and calling him a "vital part of [her] growth:"

"Remembering my beloved friend and cast mate, Chance Perdomo, whose passing has left a profound void in my heart. Chance possessed so many interpersonal gifts that I treasured deeply. He was a vital part of my growth as an individual, his gentle spirit lifted 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."

Homelander actor Antony Starr from The Boys shared the official statement on Perdomo's death in his Instagram Story, adding the comment, "So goddamn tragic" to commemorate his colleague.

Jessie T. Usher (A-Train on The Boys) echoed that sentiment in his own Instagram Story, thanking Perdomo for his performance as Andre in Gen V:

"Tragic news, rest in peace Chance. Thank you for giving us 'Andre.'"

Robert Bazzocchi, who starred as Liam (a classmate of Perdomo's Andre at Godolkin University), looked back to meeting Perdomo at the table read for the pilot episode and saying he was "one of [his] favourite actors on Sabrina." He offered these sentiments in a comment on Prime Video's Instagram post giving a statement on the passing:

"Wow. The first thing I said to him at the pilot table read was that he was one of my favourite actors on 'Sabrina.' He’s a standout. So much talent and a warm soul. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones, may he rest in peace."

On creator Eric Kripke's Instagram post with his statement, The Boys star Laz Alonso sent his own love to all of those close to the Gen V leading man:

"So sorry Eric. Sending love to his family and all those in his tribe."

Gen V co-star Dan Beirne, who played social media advisor Jeff, shared his own tribute in an Instagram Story, commenting on spending only "five days with [Perdomo]" and immediately seeing how he "lit up a room:"

"I spent probably five days with him but it was enough to know he was so funny and talented and generous and joyful. His smile lit up a room."

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa released a personal statement on Instagram, calling Perdomo "one of the most talented young actors" he'd ever worked with. Adding more than half a dozen complimentary adjectives for Perdomo, he offered his thoughts and prayers for the loss, describing his death as "heartbreaking and staggering:"

"There aren’t a lot of words for news as shocking and devastating as this. 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. The loss is heartbreaking and staggering. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. Oh, how I wish Aunt Zelda’s words were true today (and perhaps they are): 'There is no true death for witches, only transformation.' Rest in peace, Chance."

Variety's report on Perdomo's death noted that production on Season 2 of Gen V is now delayed indefinitely.

The Direct sends our heartfelt condolences to Chance Perdomo's family, friends, colleagues, and the entire Gen V and The Boys fandom during this difficult time.
