Former schoolmates and colleagues of a Southampton head boy turned TV star are among those to have shared their memories of him following his death.

Chance Perdomo, best known for playing Ambrose Spellman in Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, died in a motorcycle accident aged 27.

The news was confirmed by his publicist on Saturday.

Born in Los Angeles but raised in Southampton, Chance was head boy at Redbridge Community School where he returned to talk to pupils after being nominated for a Bafta in 2019 for BBC film Killed By My Debt.

 Chloe Windridge went to school with him.

She said: "He was such a loving and caring soul with a beautiful smile. He was always in the drama studio; he would make anyone laugh. I’m so glad you achieved your career. You'll be truly missed and always be our star."

He also played the lead role in Mayflower Theatre's production of Bugsy Malone in 2013.

Chloe Rice was one of his cast mates.

She said she was 'deeply saddened by the loss of Chance' and her 'thoughts are with all his family and friends'.

She added: "Performing alongside Chance in Bugsy Malone was an honour.

"He was the perfect leading man who made myself and those around him laugh.

"I will never forget my time on stage with you.

"He was an incredible, kind man who lifted up those around him with his smile and positive outlook on life."

Even once he was famous, it appears he always made time for everyone around him.

Debbie Cogan worked alongside Chance as a volunteer member of the tech crew at a Riverdale and Sabrina TV show event.

She recalled him teasing her about her dance moves after she tore a muscle while dancing to Michael Jackson.

She said: "You Chance were the exception: kind. As tech staff we often get ignored at events. That's cool, it's part of the job - but he laughed and joked with us. He made time for us."

The recurring theme of all the tributes we received was how he could light up a room with his personality and loved to make people smile and laugh.

Willow L met Chance a couple of times, and recalled him being 'so kind, funny and generous'.

His cheeky sense of humour shone through in one particular encounter.

She said: "I remember once I asked if he would give me a autograph for my sister so he offered to sign his boxer shorts he was wearing!"
