He was best known for playing the caring drug dealer Fezco 'Fez' O’Neill in the hit HBO series.

"It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today," Cloud's family said in a statement reported by Variety.

"As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways.

"Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend.

"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. 

In a statement shared on the official Euphoria social media accounts, HBO said: "We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud. 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."
