In unexpected and tragic news, Euphoria's Angus Cloud, who played Fez, has died at 25 years old at his home in Oakland, California. 

A statement from the actor's family reads: "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."

Fans everywhere are shocked and heartbroken.

The family's statement noted the actor's mental health struggles and the hurt he felt from losing his father. 

"Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss," the statement continued, according to multiple entertainment news sources. "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."

At the time of publication, the team behind Euphoria also released a statement saying: "We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud. He was immensely talented and a beloved part of the HBO and Euphoria family. We extend our deepest condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time."

Though new to the acting world, Angus had set himself up for an exciting career. After Euphoria season 2, he snagged roles in the forthcoming Your Lucky Day and Freaky Tales. He had been lined up to appear in an untitled monster thriller from Universal Pictures in 2024, per IMDB. He had also been working on partnerships with brands like Puma and Ralph Lauren, according to his Instagram feed. 

“He was not what you would expect,” Euphoria's casting director, Jennifer Venditti, told Variety. “He has this rough, street quality about him, but he’s a very sensitive and curious and open person. Just really warm, and incredible on camera. Very charming, and told incredible, funny stories."

People not only loved his character but the way in which they related to the man behind Fez. (TikTok loved Angus Cloud's all-too-relatable role prior to Euphoria, too.) He won't soon be forgotten, as evidenced by an outpouring of support on social media. 

"We love you for life Angus," one Twitter user wrote. "Wow. At a loss for words," another added. 

Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.
