Angus Cloud has died. He had just turned 25 years old this month.
The beloved Euphoria actor's official cause of death is not known at this time, though it was confirmed by his loved ones that he passed in their Oakland, California home on Monday.
In a statement obtained by TMZ, Cloud's family said, "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. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss."
TMZ went on to report that the Oakland Police Department and Fire Department got a 911 call around 11:30 this morning from Cloud's mother.
"She reported a 'possible overdose,' and said Angus did not have a pulse. He was eventually pronounced dead on the scene," the outlet writes, adding a "source close to the family" said Cloud had been struggling with suicidal thoughts since returning from his father's funeral in Ireland.
Police have launched an investigation, and the cause of death remains unknown.
Angus Cloud broke out as Fezco on HBO's Euphoria in 2019 and appeared in 17 episodes across two seasons. He starred alongside Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Storm Reid, Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney, Hunter Schafer, and others. The Sam Levinson series has been recognized with nine Emmy wins and 25 nominations so far.
Cloud went on to score roles in 2021's North Hollywood featuring Vince Vaughn and the drama The Line, which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in June and stars John Malkovich, Halle Bailey, Scoot McNairy, and more.
He also appeared in a video for the Juice WRLD's posthumous track "Cigarettes."
HBO shared a black-and-white photo of Cloud on its social media accounts, including Euphoria's, early Monday evening, writing, "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."
Sam Levinson stated, “There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon. He also struggled, like many of us, with addiction and depression. I hope he knew how many hearts he touched. I loved him. I always will. Rest in peace and God Bless his family.”
A number of Euphoria cast members have begun paying tribute to their friend, as have famous fans and acquaintances.
The Oakland native's birthday was July 10. Four days later he posted an Instagram photo of his late father, writing simply, “miss u breh.”
