A FORMER Southampton headboy has been nominated for a Bafta.

Chance Perdomo, 22, has been nominated for Leading Actor at this year’s Bafta TV awards after his performance in BBC Three’s docudrama, Killed By My Debt.

Chance has also starred in Netflix’s new series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, in which he plays Ambrose Spellman.

Chance the first headboy at Redbridge Community School in 2013.

Last week, the young actor returned to the school to speak to Year 10 pupils about following their dreams and working hard.

Head teacher Jason Ashley said: “He is very charismatic, level-headed young man.

“He was an absolute delight at school.

“Chance popped in last week and created a ‘buzz’, that given the year so far, was a great relief.

“He also took part in an assembly for our Year 10s.

“He spoke to them about working hard and he told them it was just his passion for acting and not for fame that got him where he is now.

“He gave everyone who wanted to speak to him their chance and gave great words of encouragement. He is such a gentleman.”

While at school Chance starred in the production of Bugsy Malone were he played the title role.

He then went on to study at Peter Symonds College where he studied drama and he then took on a law degree.

Jason added: “He left his degree to take up full time acting.

“He starred in Killed By My Debt and it just has such good reviews.

“He told me that he originally applied for the role of Jughead in Riverdale, which he didn’t get.

“But the director was so impressed with him that he said he wrote the part of Ambrose Spellman with Chance in mind.

“I am very proud.”

Killed By My Debt, based on a true story, saw Chance play Jerome Rogers, who found himself in crushing debt and took his own life.

Chance will find out if he’s won at the Bafta ceremony Sunday evening.
