Chance Perdomo is an American born English. He appeared in Killed by My Debt (2018) and played Ambrose Spellman on the Netflix series based on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.[1][2]

Early life and education[edit]

Perdomo was born in Los Angeles, California and moved to Southampton in the county of Hampshire, England with his mother as a child. He holds both British and American citizenship. He attended Redbridge Community School before going to Peter Symonds College. He intended to study Law after graduating but decided to pursue acting instead, moving with money he made working in a shoe shop and at a cinema to London where he joined the National Youth Theatre and trained at Identity School of Acting.[3]


In February 2018, it was announced that Perdomo was cast in the series regular role of Ambrose Spellman on the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.[4] Reports revealed that Perdomo previously auditioned for the role of Jughead Jones on Riverdale, but the role was given to Cole Sprouse.[5] Perdomo, however, impressed Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of the series, with his audition so much so, that Aquirre-Sacasa wrote the role of Sabrina's Ambrose with the actor in mind.[6][7]
