The tragic news of “Euphoria” actor Angus Cloud’s death at age 25 sent a wave of sorrow through the entertainment industry. Cloud’s family confirmed his passing on Monday (July 31).  

“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today,” the statement said. “As an artist, a friend, a brother, and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways.”

Devastated by the loss of his father the previous week, Cloud was grappling with the void. The family shared, “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.”

His cause of death remains undisclosed.
