‘Euphoria’ star Angus Cloud dies at 25

25-year-old actor Angus Cloud, best known for playing the drug dealer Fezco “Fez” O’Neill in American series “Euphoria,” died in Oakland, Calif on Monday.

The Oakland Fire Department said it responded to a medical emergency at approximately 11.30am and the patient was “already deceased.”

The cause of death was unknown, the fire department said.

The Oakland Police Department confirmed that it remains an “active death investigation.”

“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.”

Cloud rose to prominence playing Fez on HBO’s Emmy-winning teen drama series “Euphoria.”

His other acting credits included the films “North Hollywood” (2021) and “The Line”” (2023).

He was recently cast opposite Melissa Berrera in a new horror movie at Universal Pictures from “Scream 6” directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

Cloud also starred in various music videos such as Noah Cyrus’ “All Three,” Juice WRLD’s “Cigarettes” and Becky G and Karol G’s “Miamiii.”

Last year, Cloud was an honoree at Variety’s annual Power of Young Hollywood event and recalled being plucked off the street to star in “Euphoria.”
