Remembering the Bright Star: Angus Cloud, Beloved Euphoria Actor 'Fez,' Leaves a Lasting Legacy at 25

Angus Cloud, the talented actor known for his role as Fezco "Fez" O'Neill on HBO's popular series Euphoria, passed away at the age of 25. The news of his untimely death was announced by a publicist, revealing that he died at his family home in Oakland, California.

The Cloud family expressed their profound grief and sorrow, describing Angus as an incredible human being. They disclosed that he had recently attended his father's funeral in Ireland and had been grappling intensely with the loss, finding some comfort in the belief that he was now reunited with his beloved dad, who had been his best friend.

An advocate for mental health awareness, Angus had openly shared his struggles with mental health. In the hope of helping others, his family emphasized the importance of not battling such challenges in silence and urged people to remember him for his sense of humor, laughter, and love for everyone.

The exact cause of his passing has not been disclosed, leaving friends, fans, and colleagues devastated by the news. HBO, the network behind Euphoria, expressed their sadness over the loss, recognizing Angus Cloud's immense talent and expressing their heartfelt condolences to his friends and family.

Angus Cloud's journey in the entertainment industry was marked by humble beginnings, with minor acting credits in films such as North Hollywood and The Line, as well as appearances in music videos for various artists. However, his breakthrough came when he landed the role of Fez on Euphoria, a high school drug dealer character whose significance expanded in the show's second season.

Despite his rise to fame, Angus had never aspired to become a star or actor. In a surprising turn of events, he was approached by a casting agent while working at a chicken and waffle joint, leading to his opportunity in Euphoria.

Euphoria, which premiered in June 2019, quickly became a cultural phenomenon and a widely discussed TV show on social media. The series, centered around the struggles of a 17-year-old character portrayed by Zendaya, delves into themes of drug abuse, including the portrayal of the dangerous opioid fentanyl and morphine injections.

Angus Cloud faced accusations that the show glorified drug use, but he defended the series, emphasizing its importance in portraying real-life struggles and challenges. Creator Sam Levinson spoke highly of Angus, describing him as a unique and immensely talented individual who left the world too soon.

Following the heartbreaking news, friends and co-stars paid tribute to Angus on social media, expressing their grief and sharing heartfelt messages. Sydney Martin, rumored to be in an on-off relationship with Angus, expressed her sorrow with broken heart emojis on Instagram. Co-star Javon "Wanna" Walton, who played Ashtray, Angus' adoptive brother on the show, bid a heartfelt farewell on Instagram, referring to Angus as his brother.

The loss of Angus Cloud was not only felt by those in the entertainment industry but also by figures like California congresswoman Barbara Lee, who acknowledged him as "Oakland's own" and celebrated his talent and legacy. Actress Kerry Washington also expressed her condolences on Twitter, recognizing Angus' impact and legacy.

In the wake of Angus Cloud's passing, his contributions to the entertainment world and his advocacy for mental health will forever be cherished, leaving behind a lasting legacy that will continue to make an impact on countless lives. May he rest in power.
