About Angus Cloud

He was 25.

We had to say goodbye to an amazing human being today, and it broke my heart. In addition to being an artist, a friend, a brother, and a son, Angus was special to all of us in a number of other ways as well. Last week, he laid to rest his father, and he has struggled mightily to cope with this loss.

The only consolation we can provide is that Angus is now back with his father, who acted as his best buddy. Because Angus was open about it while he was alive, we hope that his passing will serve as a reminder to others that they are not fighting this battle alone and shouldn’t do it in silence, the statement said.

His family continued, “We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for everyone.” We are still mourning this tragic loss, therefore we beg for privacy at this time.

When Oakland Fire Department first responders were called to a medical emergency on Monday about 11:30 a.m. PT, Cloud “was determined to be already deceased,” according to Michael Hunt, a public information officer for the fire department.

The reason of the death has not yet been identified.

The inquiry is being handled by the Alameda County Coroner’s office and the Oakland Police Department, according to Hunt.

“The tears just won’t stop,” Reid penned.

The Oakland native described how a casting agent found him on the streets of Brooklyn in an interview with iD in March.

I was certain that it might be a fraud,” he chuckled. “They then invited me back in and explained the function to me; at that point, everything made more sense. because, in my head, they stopped me because I appeared to have the potential to be a star? I respond, “No, it’s because I appear to be a drug dealer.”

Cloud admitted that he was startled by his own popularity when “Euphoria” became popular.

“The difference between me and everyone else who’s famous it’s that they were trying to go get famous, for the most part,” he said to the outlet. They were putting in a lot of effort and certain that they would succeed. It was simply too fantastic of an opportunity for me to pass up. I didn’t expect things to progress this far.

In “Euphoria,” Cloud’s distinctive, gravelly voice led some to believe he was acting as himself, although he avoided being compared to his character Fez.

In an interview with Variety from last year, Cloud stated, “It does irritate me when people are like, ‘It must be so easy! You are free to enter and be who you are.I suggest, “Why don’t you go and do that.”

 It’s not really that easy. I contributed greatly to the character. What you believe is up to you.I’m not involved in it in any way.

He discussed various prospective projects and brand-new roles that he was eager to take on during the same interview.
