Angus Cloud, who played Fezoco, the dealer with a heart of gold on Euphoria, passed away at the age of 25 on Monday. Today, a stream of tributes and remembrances are rolling in from the cast and crew of the series.
Cloud’s family released a statement Monday announcing Cloud’s death: “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 not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence.”
“There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon,” said Euphoria creator Sam Levinson in a statement obtained by Deadline. “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.”
A cause of death has not yet been determined, though Cloud “was determined to be already deceased” when first responders from the Oakland Fire Department were dispatched on Monday for a medical emergency, according to CNN.
Below are the tributes for Cloud from Euphoria cast members, producers, and guest stars.

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.”
Sydney Sweeney posted on Instagram on Tuesday afternoon, with a carousel of images and videos of her and Cloud, writing: “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.”
Zendaya posted a heart-wrenching tribute on Instagram Tuesday afternoon, sharing a black-and-white photo of Cloud.
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.
“My heart is with his mother and family at this time and please be kind and patient as grief looks different for everyone.”
