RIP Angus Cloud, 25, Played Fezco the Drug Dealer on “Euphoria,” Talented Young Actor Grappled with Father’s Death


This is really a shame.

Angus Cloud, the 25 year old actor who played Fez on “Euphoria,” has died at his family’s home in Oakland, apparently from an overdose. Angus was in a deep depression after the May death of his father. Conor Hickey, age 66, an Irish rugby “legend” and Cloud”s best friend.

His family put out a statement:

“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today,” Cloud’s family said in a statement. “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. 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.

“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.”

Cloud became very popular on “Euphoria,” a show that exploits the trauma of young people. Recently singer Dominic Fike said that he was high for most of season 2. Another actress has elected not to return.

Cloud was signed recently for “Scream 6.”
