The death of Angus Cloud has been a big shock to all, including the Euphoria show family. At just 25 years old, Cloud was considered a burgeoning talent for his role as Fezco in the award-winning HBO series. Although the cause of death has not yet been released, he was open about his struggles with mental health and encouraged people to seek help when they needed it. In addition to his lauded acting abilities, he was also a beloved friend to the other cast members of the show, many of whom shared their fond memories of Cloud on social media.

Euphoria co-star Zendaya posted a black and white photo of the late actor, accompanied by a long and touching caption: “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. My heart is with his mother and family at this time and please be kind and patient as grief looks different for everyone.”

Her heartfelt message was followed by several other members of the TV series who recalled similar experiences of spending time with Cloud. Maude Apatow, who plays Lexi in Euphoria—the love interest of Cloud's character, Fezco—was devastated by the loss. “Angus was the funniest person ever,” Apatow writes. “I would get so excited to see on the schedule that we would be working together because I knew we’d have the best day, laughing so hard. He was the sweetest and made everyone around him so happy. He was just the best. Words can’t really capture how magical of a person he was. My heart is broken. Angus, getting to know and work with you was one of the greatest joys and blessings of my life. I will love you forever.”

In the second season of Euphoria, breakout actress Chloe Cherry, who plays the character of Faye, spent a significant amount of screen time with Cloud. She shared a picture of the actor photobombing her. Actor Sydney Sweeney shared her own tribute to the beloved star gone too soon: “Angus you were an open soul, with the kindest heart, and you filled every room with laughter. This is the hardest thing I've ever had to post, and I'm 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.”

Cloud's memories will be cherished by everyone who knew him. You can read more touching tributes by the Euphoria cast and crew, below.
