We are sad to report that actor Angus Cloud, best known for his role as Fez on HBO’s Euphoria, has died at the age of 25.

His family confirmed the news with TMZ.

“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.”

TMZ reported that Oakland PD and Fire responded to a 911 call from Cloud’s mother at 11:30 am local time, reporting a possible overdose. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A source close to the family told the media outlet that he had been battling suicidal thoughts after returning from Ireland, where he recently buried his father.

“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,” the family statement continued.

“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.”
