Perdomo made the character of the magnetic enigma that is student Andre Anderson of Godolkin University come alive throughout the first season of "Gen V," further ensnaring audiences along with co-stars Jaz Sinclair, Derek Luh, London Thor, Lizze Broadway, and others in a taut, tense storyline that had viewers clamoring for the next installment.

Following the sad news of Perdomo's death, the cast and crew of the "Gen V" production have all been in mourning. Described by many as charming, talented, and really one of the most lovely humans, they were heartbroken as they recalled their favorite moments and shared on-set memories.
