British actor Chance rose to international fame as Ambrose Spellman in Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. After the show ended, he went on to play Landon in After We Fell, After Ever Happy and After Everything.

In 2019, Chance was nominated for a BAFTA TV Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in the BBC Three drama Killed by My Debt.

His most recent character was Andre in Prime Video's Gen V.

Shortly after his passing was confirmed, the producers of Gen V issued a statement, reading: "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. Even writing about him in the past tense doesn't make sense."

"We are so sorry for Chance's family, and we are grieving the loss of our friend and colleague. Hug your loved ones tonight."

Our thoughts are with Chance's family, friends and loved ones. RIP Chance.
