Fans of the actor and the HBO hit series were shocked when news broke on July 31, 2023 that Angus Cloud has passed away. He was only 25.

Zendaya took to social media a day after the news broke to post a touching message for her friend and co-star. She wrote:

Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor). I’m so grateful I got the chance to know him in this life, to call him a brother, to see his warm kind eyes and bright smile, or hear his infectious cackle of a laugh (I’m smiling now just thinking of it) I know people use this expression often when talking about folks they love…“they could light up any room they entered” but boy let me tell you, he was the best at it. I’d like to remember him that way. For all of the boundless light, love and joy he always managed to give us. I’ll cherish every moment.

The actress, along with her other cast members, has been receiving backlash online for not immediately making a statement about Cloud’s passing. Seemingly addressing this issue, Zendaya ended her post with the following statement:

My heart is with his mother and family at this time and please be kind and patient as grief looks different for everyone.

Sydney Sweeney, who plays Cassie in Euphoria, also posted a message:

Angus you were an open soul, with the kindest heart, and you filled every room with laughter. This is the hardest thing ive ever had to post, and im struggling to find all the words. You will be missed more than you know, but I’m so blessed to have known you in this lifetime, and I’m sure everyone who has ever met you feels the same. This heartache is real and I wish we could’ve had one more hug and 711 run. All my love is with you.

The show’s director and creator Sam Levinson also issued a statement obtained by Deadline.com, honoring Cloud:

There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon. He also struggled, like many of us, with addiction and depression. I hope he knew how many hearts he touched. I loved him. I always will. Rest in peace and God Bless his family.

Angus Cloud passed away on Monday, July 31st, in his family home in Oakland, California. Reports say his mom made a call to 911 that morning, saying that her son didn’t have a pulse and that she suspects a “possible overdose.” Investigation is still ongoing, and an official cause of death hasn’t been released yet by authorities as of writing.
