Angus Cloud, a 25-year-old actor best known for playing heroin dealer Fezco “Fez” O’Neill in the HBO series “Euphoria,” has died. His publicist, Cait Bailey, announced that Cloud passed away on Monday at his family’s Oakland, California, home, as reported by AP. The reason of death, however, was not made public.
He buried his father last week and reportedly struggled greatly with the grief. The knowledge that Angus is now back with his father, who was his best friend, is the only solace we can find. We hope that Angus’ dying will serve as a reminder to others that they are not in this struggle alone and should not go through it in silence as he was open about it.
