The cause of death of “Euphoria” star Angus Cloud has been revealed.
According to a report from the Alameda County Coroner’s Office confirmed by Variety, Cloud died from “acute intoxication due to combined effects of methamphetamine, cocaine, fentanyl and benzodiazepines.”
On July 31, Cloud’s family announced his passing in a statement.
“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,” his family previously said, per CNN. “We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for everyone.”

His family told NBC News, “The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. 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.”
Cloud was 25 years old.
In an interview with Complex in 2022, Cloud, who portrayed Fezco, a teenage drug dealer in the hit show, spoke about addiction and what he hoped viewers would take from the show.
“Sympathy, yo. Because addiction is serious and a lot of doctors call it a disease, it’s a real thing,” he said.
Cloud further stated people don’t understand what addiction is like.
“It’s easy to talk about and it’s easy to say, ‘Just say no.’ But for someone who is in active addiction, that is damn near impossible and they will throw their whole life away and they will die because of this disease or whatever, and then they will say it’s not a disease because you ‘choose’ to do drugs,” he said, adding, “You don’t choose to do cancer.”
