Other members of the cast paid tribute to the actor – who played drug dealer Fez soon after hearing the shock news.
The show’s creator Sam Levinson and executive producer Drake were among the first to say something, along with cast members Storm Reid and Colman Domingo.
Creator Sam Levinson penned: ‘There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon.
‘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.’
Executive producer Drake simply said: ‘Good soul.’
Eric Dane who plays Cal Jacobs in the hit show added: ‘He was a one off. I’m truly sad.’
Storm Reid who plays Gia Bennett could only say: ‘the tears just won’t stop.’

Incredible roles: Angus and Javon famously played Fez and Ashtray in the hit HBO show
The story of Euphoria’s Fez and Ashtray…
Ashtray (Javon Walton) is the unofficially adopted brother of Fezco (Angus Cloud) and is a whiz kid when it comes to selling drugs and converting black market cryptocurrency.
A tough life forced Fez into the position of raising Ash by himself
And twice in the show’s second season, Ash brutally kills people with Fez covering up for him.
Ash stabs Custer (Tyler Chase) in the neck for working with the police to take him and Fez down, Fez begs his little brother to let him handle it, determined to take the fall himself.
Sadly, Ash refuses to surrender, and ends up in a shootout with a SWAT team which causes him to lose his life much to Fez’s heartache.
Colman Domingo, who plays Ali, wrote: ‘And that was his smile. That was him. May he rest sweetly in peace… Couldn’t be more real, original and sweet. Loved this kid. Always smiles. I hope this sensitive soul is at rest. Check on loved ones. Check on them.’
Lukas Gage, who plays Tyler Clarkson, simply wrote: ‘RIP @anguscloud.’
And Paula Marshall, who plays Marsha Jacobs, (via People) added: ‘He was kind and gracious and so unique. You couldn’t take your eyes off him, on film or on set. How lucky we all were to have witnessed his work. It was beyond truthful, every damn take. My heart hurts.’
Oakland PD and Fire Department responded to a 911 call made by Cloud’s mother, who reported a ‘possible overdose’ at around 11:30am yesterday, TMZ reported.
She also said that Cloud did not have a pulse, with the actor pronounced dead on the scene when responders arrived.
Cloud’s father, Conor Hickey, passed away in his native Ireland in May. An obituary written by members of a rugby club with which he was associated claimed he died ‘after a short illness’, without providing further details.
The actor just last week returned stateside from Ireland where he laid his father to rest, with sources indicating he holed up with his family in Oakland to try and cope with the grief.
One of Cloud’s final Instagram posts came on July 14, in which he shared a touching image of his smiling father in a red hoodie and red sweats, stating in the caption, ‘miss u breh.’

‘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,’ the statement continued.
‘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,’ the statement concluded.
