Euphoria Star Angus Cloud has Passed Away at 25

Fans of HBO’s Euphoria have patiently been waiting for the third season, but it looks like one star won’t be appearing anymore.

Variety reports that Angus Cloud, who played Rue’s drug dealer Fez has passed away at the age of 25. A cause of death has not been released, but Cloud’s family did come out with a statement:

“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today… 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.”

Though Fez is mostly a supporting character in Euphoria, he had found himself in the spotlight in the last season’s finale when his adopted brother Ashtray died in a gunfight with policemen. We don’t know where his character was going to go in the third season, but Cloud did share excitement for returning to the show. He told E!, “I can’t wait to get back to work with everyone… I feel like it’s been way too long. I just can’t wait to see everyone and working on set again.”

For now, tributes are going out to Cloud, with a lot of fans devastated that he would die at such a young age. We don’t know how the show will handle his loss, but the series has definitely lost a fan-favorite.

No release date has been announced for Euphoria 3, but you can catch Cloud in the first two seasons now streaming on Max.
