Euphoria adds touching tribute to Angus Cloud after his tragic death
| Last updated
The creators of Euphoria have added a touching tribute to the start of the show's existing seasons after star Angus Cloud sadly died at 25 years old.
Cloud passed away at his family home in Oakland, California on 31 July, in a death his mother Lisa has claimed was 'not intentional'.
Cloud featured in a total of 16 episodes across two seasons, beginning with the pilot released in 2019. His final appearance was in the final episode of season two, released in February 2022.
Many of the actor's co-stars paid tribute to Cloud in the wake of his death, and now Euphoria creators have added a tribute to him which plays before two episodes of the show.
The message features a black-and-white photo of Cloud, and reads: "In memory of Angus Cloud 1998 - 2023."
It appears before the pilot episode and the season two premiere of Euphoria.
The tribute comes after Zendaya said words were 'not enough to describe the infinite beauty' of Cloud.
"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)," she wrote.
Zendaya continued: "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."
Cloud had never acted professionally before he landed the role of Fezco, which he got after being scouted by the show's casting director while working as a waiter.
He lost his father shortly before his own death, and his mother assured fans in a statement that although Cloud was in 'deep grief' over the loss, 'his last day was a joyful one'.
"He was reorganizing his room and placing items around the house with intent to stay a while in the home he loved," she wrote.
"He spoke of his intent to help provide for his sisters at college, and also help his mom emotionally and financially. He did not intend to end his life."
Cloud's mother went on to describe how her son 'gave and received so much love and support to and from his tribe'.
"His work in Euphoria became a lightning rod for his generation and opened up a conversation about compassion, loyalty, acceptance and love," she added.
