"Euphoria" star Angus Cloud has died at the age of 25.

His family confirmed his death in a statement to NBC News:

"It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways. Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend."

In the statement, his family shared about his mental health struggles.

"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.

"We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss."

A spokesperson for Cloud confirmed he was 25 and that he died at his family's home in Oakland, California.

Sources close to the family tell NBC News that Cloud had been battling severe suicidal thoughts after getting back from Ireland, where his father was laid to rest. They said Cloud had been staying with his family as he tried to work through overcoming his grief.

HBO tweeted out a statement shortly after his death was confirmed expressing condolences to his loved ones.

"We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud. He was immensely talented and a beloved part of the HBO and Euphoria family. We extend our deepest condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time."

Actor and "Euphoria" co-star Javon Walton, who played Fez's younger brother Ashtray, posted a tribute to Cloud on Monday afternoon.

"Rest easy brother," he captioned the post alongside a photo of the two of them together.

Cloud is best known for his role as Fezco, also known as Fez, in the first two seasons of HBO's "Euphoria." His character, a drug dealer with a heart of gold, soon became a fan favorite.

The show's creator, Sam Levinson, remembered Cloud in a statement July 31:

"There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon," Levinson wrote. "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."

Variety reported his other acting credits included the films “North Hollywood” (2021) and “The Line” (2023).

Cloud attended the Oakland School for the Arts and studied technical theater. He got his role in “Euphoria” almost by chance and had never professionally acted before. He told GQ in August 2019 that he was stopped by a casting director on the streets of New York City.

“I was confused and I didn’t want to give her my phone number,” he told the magazine at the time. “I thought it was a scam.”

TMZ first reported Cloud's death.
