The 25-year-old actor died at his family’s home in Oakland, California, on July 31. At that time, his family said that the actor, who played Fezco on the HBO series, was struggling with grief over the death of his father a week prior.
“Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss,” the family said in July. “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.”
Cloud was one of the young actors who found stardom in 2019 with Euphoria. He had been scouted for the show by casting director Jennifer Venditti, who found Cloud working at a restaurant in Brooklyn. In addition to Euphoria, he later appeared in Mikey Alfred’s North Hollywood and Ethan Berger’s The Line — as well as music videos from Juice WRLD, Becky G and Karol G.
He also appears in the upcoming drama The Line from filmmaker Ethan Berger, and had most recently wrapped a supporting role opposite Ben Mendelsohn, Pedro Pascal and Jay Ellis in the horror-thriller Freaky Tales, and had been tapped for roles in the horror thriller Your Lucky Day and in Universal Pictures’ untitled monster movie from Radio Silence.
