Angus Cloud’s Acting Career

Cloud had minor acting credits in two films, North Hollywood and The Line. He had also appeared in music videos for artists including Becky G, Karol G and Juice WRLD. But his career really took off after he won the part of Fez, a high school drug dealer in Euphoria.

The role turned Cloud into a breakout star, and his character was expanded in the second season. After first airing in June 2019, Euphoria quickly became a hit and by 2022 was the most tweeted-about TV show of the decade in the US.

The main character, played by Zendaya, is a 17-year-old who struggles with drug abuse, seen on screen taking the deadly opioid fentanyl and injecting morphine.

In 2022, Cloud defended accusations during an interview with America’s TMZ that the show glorified drug use.

Cloud has been mourned by several stars including his Euphoria co-star, Javon “Wanna” Walton, known in the show as Cloud’s adoptive brother, Ashtray, who wrote on Instagram about Cloud’s death: “Rest easy brother.”
