What happened to Angus Cloud? The Euphoria actor has died at age 25, his family shared on July 31. He passed away at his family’s home in Oakland, Calif.
Angus Cloud (real name: Conor Angus Cloud Hickey) was an American actor best known for his portrayal of Fezco in the HBO television series Euphoria.
After growing up in Oakland, Cloud was discovered on the streets of Brooklyn and cast in Euphoria, his breakout role. “I was with some friends,” he told Variety last year. “We were just hanging out.”
While he quickly became a fan favorite on the high school-set show—which also stars Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney, Maude Apatow and more—he emphasized that he’s not exactly like his stoner onscreen persona.
“It does bother me,” Cloud said, “when people are like, ‘It must be so easy! You get to go in and be yourself.’ I’m like, ‘Why don’t you go and do that?’ It’s not that simple. I brought a lot to the character. You can believe what you want. It ain’t got nothing to do with me.”
However, on July 31, 2023, the world learned about his death and this led to many asking what his cause of death and net worth was. Read on for more.
