Angus Cloud, Actor on ‘Euphoria,’ Dies at 25

Angus Cloud, the actor best known for portraying Fezco, a lovable drug dealer on the HBO television show “Euphoria,” died on Monday at his family home in Oakland, Calif. He was 25.

The death was confirmed by Cait Bailey, Mr. Cloud’s representative, who shared a statement from his family. The family did not specify a cause, but said that Mr. Cloud had “intensely struggled” after the recent death of his father, whom he buried last week.

“The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend,” the family said. “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.”

Mr. Cloud, who had never acted before playing Fezco, quickly became a fan favorite on the show. His character was meant to die in Season 1 of “Euphoria,” but was kept alive, according to a casting agent, after Sam Levinson, the show’s creator, saw Mr. Cloud’s performance.

He was discovered in 2018 by a casting agent, who saw Mr. Cloud walking along Mercer Street in Greenwich Village with a friend. At the time, Mr. Cloud was working as a waiter in Brooklyn, and thought the approach was a scam, but the friend convinced Mr. Cloud to follow through.

“Before this, I didn’t have any desire to act,” he said in an interview with The New York Times last year. “I guess I was just at the right place at the right time.”
