The news of Angus Cloud’s passing came as a shock to many who admired his talent and charisma on screen. Before “Euphoria,” Angus had no prior acting experience.

In “Euphoria,” Angus Cloud’s portrayal of Fezco was nothing short of mesmerizing. His performance breathed life into the character, capturing the attention of audiences worldwide.

He emphasized that acting wasn’t merely being oneself on screen but a dedicated craft that required hard work and commitment.
Tragically, Angus Cloud’s passing occurred shortly after he had laid his father to rest. The loss of his best friend and confidant took a toll on him, exacerbating his already known struggle with mental health issues. In their statement, his family expressed the hope that his passing would serve as a reminder to others that they are not alone in their battles and should seek help and support rather than suffer in silence.
Sam Levinson, deeply affected by Angus’ passing, expressed his grief and admiration for the young actor. Levinson remembered Angus as a unique and immensely talented individual taken from the world far too soon. He acknowledged that Angus, like many others, grappled with addiction and depression, highlighting the importance of addressing mental health issues and offering compassion and assistance to those in need.
HBO, the network that aired “Euphoria,” also paid tribute to Angus Cloud, calling him immensely talented and a beloved part of the “Euphoria” family. The network extended its deepest condolences to Angus’ friends and family during this difficult time.
