Tributes have poured in for Angus Cloud, just hours after news broke that the Euphoria actor, aged just 25, had died. In a statement released by his family, they said he had struggled with the loss of his father, who was buried last week.

His family were first to pay tribute, saying: “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. 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.”

One of the most famous supermodels on the planet, Gigi Hadid, also paid tribute to the actor on Monday (31 July), writing: “Just saw the news about the loss of Angus.

“I only got to work with him a couple of times, but I was immediately drawn to his kind, gentle spirit. My deepest condolences to his closest and loved ones. May he rest in peace.”

His co-star, Zendaya, said: “Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor). 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. 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.”

“Angus was just a regular dude from Oakland he really didn’t give a f*** about being famous at all he just wanted to do him and do the things he liked man was chill.”

Sydney Sweeney paid tribute too. She said: “Angus you were an open soul, with the kindest heart, and you filled every room with laughter,” the White Lotus actor said. “This is the hardest thing ive ever had to post, and im struggling to find all the words [sic].”
