Euphoria star Angus Cloud, who played Fezco on the show from 2019 to 2022, tragically passed away at the age of 25 on July 31, 2023.“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today,” his family said in a statement to TMZ at the time. “As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways. Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend.”
Addressing his severe mental health struggles, they added, “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.” Angus’ family concluded, “We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss.”
The rising star’s cause of death was not immediately revealed, although TMZ reported that his mother called 9-1-1 on Monday, July 31, and reported a “possible overdose.” Read on to learn about the late star’s mother and his late father, who died less than two weeks before he did.
Angus’ Mother Saved His Life
When Angus was a young teenager, he fell into an approximately 10-ft. deep construction hole, breaking his skull and fingers. Amazingly, he survived and climbed his way out. He wasn’t bleeding but could tell his vision was blurry, so he took the bus to his mom’s place. “She thought I was on drugs, ’cause my pupils was hella dilated,” Angus told Variety in 2022. “I was trying to tell her what happened, but I could only start a sentence — I couldn’t finish it. So I was like, ‘I’m just gonna go sleep in my bed.’”
His mother didn’t think going to bed was a good idea, and she brought him to the children’s hospital. That decision saved his life. He spent five days recovering in the ICU and had skull surgery to help fuse it back together. “That’s what the scar’s from. They cut my head open, they put some screws and a plate over where I broke my skull … me back up, and that was that,” he nonchalantly explained.
Following her young’s tragic death in 2023, the late actor’s mother told PEOPLE she attempted to save him after finding him dead in his room.
“I started shaking him and screaming. I pushed him hard, and he fell on the floor,” Lisa told the outlet. “I tried to resuscitate him — mouth to mouth — and I was compressing him. I was screaming for my neighbor because I didn’t want to leave him and call 9-1-1, and I just kept at it until they took him away. I miss him so much. He was the love of my life.”
Angus’ Father Died A Week Before He Did
As mentioned in his death announcement, Angus was mourning the loss of his father at the time of his own death. On July 14, he took to Instagram to remember his late dad with a photo of him holding up a hang loose sign. “miss u breh,” the rising star captioned the picture.
It is not clear how Angus’ father died, but his death greatly affected Angus. An insider claimed he was having suicidal thoughts following his father’s funeral, per Page Six, and was staying at his family home in Oakland, Calif., to help himself grieve.
