August 1, 2023

"Euphoria" actor Angus Cloud has died at the age of 25, according to a statement from his family.

Cloud, known as the drug dealer Fez on the HBO series, did not have an official cause of death listed, though concerns with his mental health were mentioned.

The family's statement

“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today,” the family said in a statement Monday.

“As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways. Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. Angus was open about his battle with mental health and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence," it continued.

“We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss," the family's statement added.

HBO's statement

"We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud," HBO also said in a statement.

"He was immensely talented and a beloved part of the HBO and 'Euphoria' family. We extend our deepest condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time," it added.

His background

"Best known for his breakout role as Fezco in the HBO teen drama, Cloud said he was discovered in the street by a casting agent and had never professionally acted before the series. His lovable and comedic character quickly became beloved by the dedicated fans of the series," NBC News reported.

"He told i-D magazine in a March interview that he was different from other actors because he wasn't trying to get famous when he took on the role," it added.

Family and friends now mourn his loss as Cloud's life ended suddenly and far earlier than expected.
