‘the Tears Just Won’t Stop’

  • Angus Cloud is dead at 25, his family said Monday.
  • The actor was grieving the loss of his father, who was buried last week.
  • His “Euphoria” castmates are mourning the star, with Storm Reid saying: “The tears just won’t stop.”

The cast and crew of “Euphoria” are paying tribute to Fezco actor Angus Cloud, who has died aged 25.

In a statement to Insider Monday, Cloud’s family said that he was struggling with the loss of his father, who they buried last week.

“Euphoria” creator and showrunner Sam Levinson said: “There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented, and way too young to leave us so soon.”

“He also struggled, like many of us, with addiction and depression. I hope he knew how many hearts he touched. I loved him. I always will. Rest in peace and God Bless his family,” Levinson added in a statement, which was first published by The Hollywood Reporter.

In the hit HBO drama, Cloud played Fezco, a kindhearted drug dealer who is close friends with the central character, Rue, played by Zendaya.

Storm Reid, who plays Rue’s sister, Gia, in the series, posted about Cloud on her Instagram story, sharing a tender clip of the actor singing in “Euphoria.”

“The tears just won’t stop,” she wrote over the clip.
