Angus Cloud, the Euphoria actor, died at the age of 25, his family said on July 31. He died in his family's house in Oakland, California.

According to Angus Cloud's Family , Angus Cloud died on July 31 at his family's home in Oakland, California, who played the role  the drug dealer Fezco on the HBO show. He was just 25 years old.

"It was very painful that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today," his family said that he was special one to all of us as an artist, friend, brother, and son."

Cloud had recently lost his father, according to his loved ones.

"He lost his father last week. "The only consolation we have is that Angus has been reunited with his father, who was his best friend." Angus was honest about his struggles with mental health, and we hope that his death would serve as a reminder to others that they are not alone, and that they should not fight this alone and in secret."

The world must be remembers him for his great personality and love for everyone," . We want privacy at this time because we are still grieving the loss of our loved one." The cause of his death was not disclosed till now.

HBO paid tribute to the actor. "We are deeply saddened by the news of Angus Cloud's passing," it said. "He was a huge talent and a beloved member of the HBO and Euphoria families." During this sad time, we express our heartfelt condolences to his friends and family."

In season three we see Cloud after his character, Fez, nearly escaped a shooting at the end of season two. 

Cloud went to Oakland School for the Arts, where his future co-star Zendaya also went to school.

He was spotted on the streets of Brooklyn and cast in his breakthrough role, Euphoria. "I was with some friends," he said last year to Variety. "We were just hanging out." 

While he rapidly became a fan favourite on the high school-set drama, which also stars Hunter Schafer, Sydney Sweeney, Maude Apatow, and others, he stressed that he is not his stoner onscreen image.

Cloud admitted that it bothers him,  "when people say, 'It must be so easy!'" You are free to enter and be yourself.' 'Why don't you go do that?' I say. That is not the case. I contributed much to the character. You are free to believe whatever you wish. It has nothing to do with me."

In reality, acting was more difficult than he had anticipated. 

"It astonished me," he explained, "because I'm not sweating and busting my ass, but mentally, I get off work, get in the car, and go, 'S--t! What the f--k is going on? I'm exhausted as f--k, and I'm not even doing s--t!' I'm a really laid-back, silly guy. But Fezco rarely laughs or smiles."

Cloud escaped a near-death encounter a decade before his untimely demise when he fell into a construction pit while wandering at night. "I woke up 12 hours later at the bottom," he explained to Variety. "I was entrapped."

Cloud, then 15, eventually crawled out and caught a bus to his mother's house.

"It was hella hard to climb out," he explained, "because my skull was broken, but my skin wasn't, so all the bleeding was internal, pressing up against my brain."

When he arrived home, the actor just wanted to sleep, but he praised his mother for thinking on her feet.

"I would have died," he said. "She gave me some water, and I started vomiting gallons of crimson red blood." That was insane. My mother then took me to the children's hospital, where they saved my life. That's where the scar comes from. They sliced my head open, put some screws and a plate over where I had broken my skull, and—s--t, sealed me up, and that was the end of it." 

Cloud has been on North Hollywood, The Line, and in music videos for Becky G, Karol G, and Juice WRLD, in addition to Euphoria.
