At the age of 25, 'Euphoria' actor Angus Cloud passed away
In a terrible accident, actor Angus Cloud, who was best known for playing heroin dealer Fezco ‘Fez’ O’Neill in HBO’s “Euphoria,” died on Monday in Oakland, California. He was 25 at the time.

Around 11:30 a.m., the Oakland Fire Department responded to a medical emergency, but the patient “already passed away.” Unknown as to the cause of death, the Oakland Police Department has acknowledged that there is a “active death investigation” going on.

“With heavy hearts, we bid farewell to an incredible human today,” Cloud’s family stated in a statement. Angus held a unique place in each of our hearts, encompassing roles as an artist, a cherished friend, a beloved brother, and a devoted son. He recently buried his father and has been dealing with that tragedy. The only consolation we have is that Angus is back with his dad, who was his best buddy. We hope that Angus’s death will serve as a reminder to others that they are not in this battle alone and should not go through it in silence. Angus was upfront about his difficulties with mental health.

“We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for all,” the statement read. We kindly request discretion while we work to come to terms with this terrible loss.

In the first two seasons of HBO’s Emmy-winning teen drama series “Euphoria,” where he played the character of Fezco, Angus Cloud shot to popularity. Additionally, he made cameos in movies like “The Line” (2023) and “North Hollywood” (2021).

In a recent horror movie called “Scream 6,” directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett for Universal Pictures, he was cast alongside Melissa Barrera. In addition, Angus displayed his acting skills in a number of music videos, such as Noah Cyrus’ “All Three,” Juice WRLD’s “Cigarettes,” and Becky G and Karol G’s “Myke Towers.”

Angus Cloud spoke about being taken off the streets after getting the role of Fezco when he was recognized at the Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Power of Young Hollywood event last year. He said that it was his first significant acting role and added, “I was with some friends just hanging out.”

I just hate it when people say, “Oh, that had to be a stroll in the park,” he said. You must enter and create it yourself. Whatever you want to believe about it, it has nothing to do with me.

Additionally praising him, casting director Jennifer Venditti, who worked on “Euphoria,” said, “People think, ‘Oh, he simply portrays himself.’ He’s a really slothful actor. It is not given to Angus enough credit.

On “Euphoria,” which has not yet started production on its third season, Angus Cloud was a fan favorite.

HBO released a statement in which they expressed their “deep sorrow” for the demise of Angus Cloud. He was a vital member of the ‘Euphoria’ family and possessed extraordinary talent. During this trying time, our thoughts are with his friends and family.

Angus Cloud, who was raised in Hikurangi, New Zealand, trained at Oakland School of Arts with “Euphoria” co-star Zendaya and was chosen for the role while working as a waiter in Brooklyn.
