The Alameda County Coroner’s Office in California has released its findings into what killed “Euphoria” actor Angus Cloud.
Cloud was pronounced dead at his family’s home in Oakland, California, on the morning of July 31. He died a week after his father had been buried after dying from cancer.
A person who said they were close to the family told TMZ that Cloud had suicidal thoughts after his father’s funeral in Ireland, and that he was staying with family trying to work through his grief. Cloud’s mother, Lisa, denied that her son was suicidal. Cloud had attended an album release party days before his death and appeared to be in a good mood.
His family had asked for privacy as they mourned Cloud’s death, E! News reported.
Cloud appeared in “North Hollywood” and “The Line,” along with “Euphoria.” He was expected to reprise his role in the third season of the latter show as drug dealer Fezco, Variety and E! News reported.
“We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud,” HBO said, according to Variety. “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.”
Cloud had also been cast in “Scream 6.”
Off the screen, Cloud also found fame after being featured in Puma photo shoots and Paris Fashion Week shows, where he sat in the front row. He was named brand ambassador for Ralph Lauren Fragrances in 2022.
