Angus Cloud

In a tragic turn of events, the entertainment world mourns the loss of 25-year-old actor Angus Cloud, renowned for his portrayal of Fezco “Fez” O’Neill, the memorable drug dealer in HBO’s hit series “Euphoria.” Angus’ family bid a heartfelt farewell to their beloved member, describing him not only as a talented artist but also a cherished friend, brother, and son, according to a statement reported by AP. Angus Cloud’s journey to stardom was far from conventional. Before landing the role of Fez, he had no prior acting experience. It was during a chance encounter while walking down the streets of New York that casting scout Eléonore Hendricks spotted him.

Initially hesitant, Angus was eventually convinced to meet with casting director Jennifer Venditti and series creator Sam Levinson, leading to the offer of a co-starring role alongside Zendaya in the first two seasons of “Euphoria.” His portrayal of Fez was so compelling that some people speculated Cloud and the character were one and the same. However, Angus adamantly rejected this notion, asserting that he was distinct from the character he portrayed. He revealed in an interview with Variety that bringing Fez to life required significant effort and talent, dismissing the assumption that it was an easy task to portray himself.

Tragically, Angus Cloud’s untimely passing came shortly after he buried his father, a loss that deeply affected him. His family emphasized his openness about his battle with mental health and hoped that his passing would serve as a reminder to others that they are not alone in their struggles and should not suffer in silence. Series creator Sam Levinson expressed his profound grief, stating that there was no one quite like Angus. He was a unique talent who touched the hearts of many and left a lasting impact. Levinson acknowledged that Angus, like many others, struggled with addiction and depression, making his passing even more heartbreaking.

As the news of Angus Cloud’s passing spreads, HBO, in a statement reported by AP, remembered him as immensely talented and a beloved part of the “Euphoria” family. The network extended their deepest condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time. Angus Cloud’s memory will live on through his incredible performances on screen and the love he shared with everyone around him. His family and fans will forever cherish the humor, laughter, and affection he brought to their lives. Rest in peace, Angus Cloud, and may his family find comfort in knowing he is reunited with his father, his best friend.
