Angus Cloud, the actor best known for his role as Fezco “Fez” O’Neill on HBO’s Euphoria, died on July 31 at the age of 25. The Alameda County Coroner has now revealed Cloud’s cause of death, which was ruled as an accidental overdose, TMZ reports. The coroner determined that Cloud had a combination of fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, and benzodiazepine in his system, resulting in acute intoxication and ultimately death.
Following the news of Cloud’s death earlier this summer, the actor’s Euphoria co-star Zendaya remembered Cloud in a eulogy on social media. “I’m so grateful I got the chance to know him in this life, to call him a brother, to see his warm kind eyes and bright smile, or hear his infectious cackle of a laugh,” she wrote.
Euphoria actor Dominic Fike and showrunner Sam Levinson also paid tribute to Cloud, as did musicians such as Kid Cudi, Questlove, Janelle Monáe, Kerry Washington, Chlöe, Flavor Flav, and others.
