Euphoria Star Angus Cloud Has Died At 25

Euphoria Star Angus Cloud Has Died At 25

Angus Cloud’s breakout role of Fez as “Euphoria” made him a household name, and an unlikely fan-favorite considering he’s the drug dealer of the series star, Zendaya’s Rue. Cloud actually attended the School of Production Design at Oakland School for the Arts alongside Zendaya, but was streetcast for “Euphoria” while working at a restaurant in Brooklyn, initially thinking casting director Jennifer Venditti was trying to scam him. Despite being a drug dealer, Fez is often the moral compass of “Euphoria,” and the most loyal character in the series. He’s willing to beat the brakes off of serial abuser Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi), while simultaneously being the best possible partner to Lexi Howard (Maude Apatow) and serving as one of the only examples of a healthy relationship on the show.

Fans immediately gravitated toward Cloud’s lo-fi approach to the character, and his unmistakable Oakland drawl helped turn line deliveries like “You’re confused? I’m f***in’ confused, bro,” into viral sensations. Cloud was almost an anti-actor with the unflinching realism to his performances, and absolutely had the potential to be one of the leading new actors of his generation. Season 2 of “Euphoria” was debatably a hot mess, but Cloud’s performance kept the show emotionally grounded and gave fans a reason to tune in each week.

He will be greatly missed.
