His family indicated in their statement that Cloud suffered from the loss of his father.

“Last week, he buried his father and struggled intensely with this loss,” they explained. “Our only solace is that Angus has been reunited with his father, his best friend. We hope that Angus’ death will serve as a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not battle mental illness in silence.”

In Oakland, California on July 10, 1998, Cloud was born. The Oakland School of the Arts was where he got his education. To the Wall Street Journal in 2019, Cloud disclosed that he and his “Euphoria” co-star Zendaya went to the same high school.

“We had some of the same friends, I believe but I didn’t really know her,” he stated.

The casting director for “Euphoria,” Jennifer Venditti, noticed him while he was residing in Brooklyn, New York.

Cloud told the WSJ that he believed the audition for “Euphoria” was a “some type of scam.” When he was cast as Fezco, Cloud stated that he would change things in the script before taking it while on site.

He stated that his goal was to continue acting.

“I’m definitely trying to work on my acting,” Cloud stated at the time. “My new dream is to be the voice of a cartoon character or something.” “I’m attempting to do some sort of voice-over.”

In response to the news of his death, HBO issued a statement regarding Cloud.

“We are incredibly saddened to learn of Angus Cloud’s passing,” a media company said. “He was exceptionally talented and a beloved member of the HBO and “Euphoria” family. We extend our deepest condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time.”Euphoria Star Angus Cloud

“Euphoria” co-star Javon “Wanna” Walton, who featured Cloud’s adoptive sibling Ashtray, took to Instagram to pay tribute to his co-star.

Walton wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself and Cloud, “Rest easy brother ❤️️.”

Sam Levinson, the creator and director of “Euphoria,” also released a statement to grieving Cloud’s passing.

“There was no one quite like Angus,” said Levinson. “He was too exceptional, talented, and youthful to have left us so soon. Like many of us, he struggled with addiction and depression. I believe he knew how many hearts he touched. I admired him. I forever will. God bless his family and rest in peace.
