Angus Cloud of ‘Euphoria’ Dead at 25

The entertainment world was rocked this week by two sudden deaths.

Paul Reubens, who made his claim to fame by playing Pee-Wee Herman, passed away after a long battle with cancer at the age of 70.

Far more shocking was the death of Angus Cloud, who played Fez on “Euphoria.”

Even though he was not the main character, he was beloved by fans for how he took care of his grandmother and Rue on the show.


Cloud had no major medical issues, but his father had recently passed, and close friends and family noted that he took his father’s death very hard.

There has been no cause of death posted, but after attending his father’s funeral in Ireland, Cloud returned to his Oakland, California, home, where he was clearly distraught. Speculation is that he more than likely took his own life, but that is pure speculation at this point.

In “Euphoria,” which starred Zendaya as the lead character Rue, Cloud played a drug dealer who just happened to have a heart.

He was caring for his little brother, who was his partner in crime, his grandmother, and even Rue when she was struggling with her addiction.

While he had a soft spot for Rue, make no mistake about it, his character could turn in a heartbeat into a ruthless killer.

Cloud had only recently started his acting career, getting a small part in a 2019 TV series called “The Perfect Woman,” per IMDb.

He landed the role of Fez in “Euphoria” the same year, which really put him on everyone’s radar.

Along with starring in several music videos, “The Line” came out in 2023, as well as several other projects which have yet to come to completion.

Cloud has one picture coming out in 2024 that has not yet been titled, as well as “Freaky Tales,” which is still in post-production with no scheduled release date. Both films will obviously be posthumous appearances.

Upon his death, his family stated, “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,” reported Forbes.

This young man had a promising future, but his tale is all too familiar of a generation that simply cannot deal with turmoil… it’s just sad.
