Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka took to Instagram on Tuesday to mourn the death of her co-star, Chance Perdomo.

“Oh man this hurts,” Shipka wrote beneath a carousel of photos featuring herself and her late friend. Perdomo died in a motorcycle accident, his reps told The Hollywood Reporter last weekend. He was 27.

“He was a one of a kind soul. Just the most fiery, creative, loving, connected, and caring force you could possibly imagine,” Shipka continued. “As playful as he was kind. As loving as he was hilarious. He never failed to make me laugh and he never failed to keep me on my toes (or off of them if he was giving me a piggyback ride to my trailer which he often did. Thanks Chance.)”

Shipka played the titular witch in Netflix‘s Sabrina, which ran for four seasons beginning in 2018. Perdomo played Ambrose Spellman, Sabrina’s cousin and partner in crime.

In her tribute on Tuesday, Shipka wrote that Perdomo’s “humanity was a generous gift to me and to so many people. Really hard to picture this world without him in it.”

She concluded, “I loved him with my whole heart. I always will.”

Over the weekend, many of Perdomo’s co-stars from Sabrina as well as Prime Video’s Gen V took to social media to honor their late friend.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, who portrays Perdomo’s best friend in Gen V, wrote on X, formerly Twitter, “This hurts. A lot. What a young talented actor, and a great friend – gone way too soon.”

He also added that Perdomo was “a pleasure to work with.”

Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late actor, writing that “Chance was a gifted young actor lost too early. He was so great to work with on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Everyone at Netflix is sending love and strength to Chance’s entire family and his big family of friends.”
