Friends and fans of Angus Cloud continue to reel from his unexpected death on Monday (July 31). On Tuesday (Aug. 1), “Euphoria” co-star Zendaya took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the 25-year-old’s unfortunate transition.
“Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus [Conor],” she began. “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 [I’m smiling now just thinking of it]. I know people use this expression often when talking about folks they love, ‘They could light up any room they entered,’ but boy, let me tell you, he was the best at it.”
She continued, “I’d like to remember him that way. For all of the boundless light, love, and joy he always managed to give us. I’ll cherish every moment. My heart is with his mother and family at this time… Please be kind and patient, as grief looks different for everyone.”
As previously reported by REVOLT, Cloud was said to have passed while at his family’s residence in Oakland. Sharing a message to TMZ, the actor’s loved ones mentioned that he recently buried his father and “struggled with this loss.” “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’s statement added. “We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for everyone.”
Since “Euphoria,” Cloud saw continued success in Hollywood via the critically acclaimed drama The Line, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in June. Two others, an untitled movie based on the Universal Monsters home video series and Freaky Tales, are currently in post-production.
