After his death on July 31 at the age of 25, a tribute to actor Angus Cloud was inserted into two episodes of Euphoria.
Watching the show on Max, a title card that reads “In Memory of Angus Cloud, 1998-2023” appears at the beginning of the first episode of Season 1 and Season 2 of the HBO drama.
Cloud, who played Fezco on the popular HBO series, died on July 31. His cause of death is unclear, but on Saturday his mother wrote on Facebook: “He had no intention of ending his life.”
“As we hugged goodnight, we said how much we loved each other and he said he’d see me in the morning,” she said.
Cloud’s comrades were devastated by the news. Zendaya wrote on Instagram: “Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty of Angus (Conor). I am so thankful that I had the chance to get to know him in this life, to call him a brother, to see his warm, kind eyes and bright smile, or to hear his infectious cackling laugh (I smile now, just thinking about it think). ) I know people use that phrase a lot when talking about people they love… “They could light up any room they walk in,” but boy I’m telling you, he was the best at it. I would like to remember him like this. With all the limitless light, love and joy he always gave us. I will cherish every moment.”
HBO praised Cloud’s work on Euphoria in a statement after his death: “We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud. He was extremely talented and a well-loved part of the HBO and Euphoria families. We extend our deepest condolences to his friends and family at this difficult time.”
