Zendaya has paid an emotional tribute to her Euphoria co-star Angus Cloud, following the announcement of his death at age 25 on Tuesday.

Posting to Instagram, Zendaya said she was "so grateful" to have known the actor, who played the big-hearted drug dealer Fezco 'Fez' O'Neill in the hit HBO series.

"Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor). 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, alongside a black and white photo of a smiling Cloud.

"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. My heart is with his mother and family at this time and please be kind and patient as grief looks different for everyone."

Her fellow co-star Sydney Sweeney, who plays Cassie in the show, also shared a heartfelt tribute on Instagram, describing Cloud as a man with "the kindest heart." 

"Angus you were an open soul, with the kindest heart, and you filled every room with laughter. 

"This is the hardest thing I've ever had to post, and I'm struggling to find all the words. 

"You will be missed more than you know, but I'm so blessed to have known you in this lifetime, and I'm sure everyone who has ever met you feels the same. This heartache is real and I wish we could've had one more hug and 711 run. All my love is with you."

In a statement posted online on Tuesday after news of Cloud's death was made public, his family hinted the death of his father had deeply affected him.

"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.

"We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss," his family said.
