Shipka also recalled the happy memories she shared with Pedromo as they played Ambrose and Sabrina Spellman in the supernatural horror series on Netflix. 

"Once I got a new trailer on Sabrina and he called it 'Kierlandia,'" she recounted.

"And then he went online and he got a poster with my face on it that said 'Kierlandia.' And one day I show up and on my trailer is just this big, plastered photo of me. He was a freaking jokester," Shipka added.

On March 30, Pedromo's family and representatives confirmed his death in a joint statement. 

"His passion for the arts and insatiable appetite for life was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth will carry on in those whom he loved dearest," read the statement.

"We ask you to please respect the family's wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother," the statement concluded.

After the news of the 'Gen V' star's death was confirmed, Shipka took to Instagram on April 2 to pay tribute to the late costar.

Sharing a series of images and clips of herself and Pedromo, she wrote, "Oh man this hurts."

"He was a one-of-a-kind soul. Just the most fiery, creative, loving, connected, and caring force you could imagine," Shipka continued.
