Actor Angus Cloud, best known for his role as Fezco on the HBO drama series “Euphoria,” has died at age 25.
Cloud’s representative Cait Bailey confirmed Cloud’s death in a statement from his family: “It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. 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. We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone.” No cause of death has been shared.
Cloud will be remembered for his breakout role as Fezco in “Euphoria,” which he starred in for two seasons. “Euphoria” was Cloud’s first-ever acting gig, but he was classmates with the series’ star, Zendaya, at the School of Production Design at Oakland School for the Arts. Cloud’s other credits include roles in the films “North Hollywood” and “The Line” and cameos in music videos for Noah Cyrus, Juice WRLD and Becky G and Karol G. At the time of his death, Cloud had several projects in the pipeline, including an untitled Universal Monsters film.
An HBO spokesperson said in a statement: “We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud. 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.”
