Angus Cloud, the actor who played Fezco “Fez” O’Neill on the TV show Euphoria, has passed away at the age of 25. He lived with his family in Oakland, California. His family and friends remember him as an artist, a friend, a brother, and a son. The cause of his death has not been disclosed.
Last week, Angus Cloud’s father passed away, and he had a very hard time dealing with this loss. The family finds some comfort in knowing that Angus is now with his dad again, as they were very close.
Angus had been honest about his struggles with mental health, and the family wishes that his passing can remind others that they are not alone in their struggles and should not keep their pain inside. It’s essential to reach out for help and support.
His family wants people to remember Angus Cloud for the way he brought humor, laughter, and love to everyone around him. Before he got the role in Euphoria, Angus had never acted before. It all started when a casting scout named Eléonore Hendricks saw him walking down the street in New York.
At first, Angus was unsure and thought it might be a trick or a scam. But then he met with casting director Jennifer Venditti, and the series creator, Sam Levinson, believed in him, making him a co-star alongside Zendaya for the first two seasons of the show.
Some people thought Angus Cloud was just like his character Fez on the show, Euphoria, but he didn’t agree with that idea. They thought it was easy for him to play the role because it seemed so natural. But Angus didn’t think it was that simple.
He said, “It bothers me when people assume it’s easy. They say, ‘You’re just being yourself.’ But it’s not like that. I brought a lot to the character, and you can believe what you want, but it’s not about me.” He wanted people to know that it took effort and skill to portray Fez the way he did.
Because of his role in the TV show Euphoria, Angus Cloud became very popular and famous. He also had a smaller part in his first movie called “The Line,” which is a college drama with actors Alex Wolff and John Malkovich.
The movie was shown at the Tribeca Festival earlier this year. Angus Cloud was also chosen to act in “Scream 6.” Besides acting, he made short appearances in music videos for Juice WRLD, Becky G, and Karol G.
The official Twitter account of the TV show Euphoria posted a message expressing their deep sadness about Angus Cloud’s passing.
They said he was very talented and loved by everyone on the show. They sent their sincere condolences to his friends and family during this hard time.
The series creator, Sam Levinson, also shared his thoughts in a statement. He said that Angus was truly unique and had amazing talent, and it’s heartbreaking that he left us so early in life.
Like many of us, Angus struggled with addiction and depression. Levinson hopes that Angus knew how much he meant to people, and he personally loved him and always will. He wishes Angus to rest in peace, and he sends blessings to Angus’s family.
HBO said that Angus Cloud was very talented and loved by everyone at HBO and the show Euphoria. They feel very sad about his passing and want to send their heartfelt sympathy to his friends and family during this tough time.
