It continues: “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.

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

At the time of writing, Cloud’s cause of death is yet to be confirmed.

Euphoria was Cloud’s first major acting role and he was expected to be part of season three – which has yet to begin production.

He was discovered for the part while he was just hanging out with his friends in Brooklyn.

Despite becoming a fan-favourite character on the show, Cloud iterated to Variety that he is not like his on-screen persona in real life.

He said: “It does bother me when people are like, ‘It must be so easy! You get to go in and be yourself’.

“I’m like, ‘Why don’t you go and do that?’. It’s not that simple. I brought a lot to the character. You can believe what you want. It ain’t got nothing to do with me.”

Jennifer Vandetti, the casting director on the show, also told the outlet that he doesn’t get enough credit for his performance on the show.
