Why Was It Said that Angus Cloud Had Committed Suicide?
Early reports indicated that Angus Cloud, 25, may have taken his own life because he was going through a difficult time. A week before his death, his father passed away, a situation that he would not have been able to assimilate.
A source told Page Six that Cloud had recurring suicidal thoughts, all after burying his father in Ireland. “Cloud was living at his relatives’ house while trying to get over his grief,” the source said.
On July 14, the actor who brings Fezco to life on the HBO series shared a photo of his father on his social media where he wrote in the description, “Miss you, breh.”
However, later more details began to emerge about what happened that day. According to The Daily Express, Lisa Cloud Mclaughlin, mother of the Euphoria actor, called the emergency number to report that her son was not well.
When the Euphoria star’s mom contacted authorities she referred to a “possible overdose” and stressed that he had no pulse. Upon arrival at his home, the actor was pronounced lifeless.
