Actor Angus Cloud, breakout star of the HBO series ‘Euphoria’, has passed away at the age of 25. According to TMZ, his mother called the Fire Department at around 11:30 am on Monday, reporting a “possible overdose” and said Angus did not have a pulse. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
According to a source close to the family, Cloud had been battling severe mental health issues since he came back from Ireland after burying his father.
According to the statement released by the family:
“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.”
“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 alone and should not fight this on their own in silence.”
Several of Euphoria stars like Javon Walton sent their condolences to the actor and his family.
