Angus Cloud, who starred in HBO's drama "Euphoria", has died at 25, his family said in a statement to CNN on Jul. 31, 2023.

The statement shared that Cloud travelled back to Ireland last week to bury his father, "his best friend", and "intensely struggled with this loss".

The Cloud family said:

“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. 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.”

The family also asked for privacy as they are still "processing this devastating loss".

"We hope the world remembers [Cloud] for his humour, laughter and love for everyone," they added.

Two weeks ago, Cloud posted a picture of his father on Instagram with the caption, "miss u breh".
