The mother of Euphoria star Angus Cloud, who died last week, has shared details about the day before his death and said she believes the 25-year-old “did not intend to end his life”.
Cloud played drug dealer Fezco in 17 episodes of the hit HBO drama, alongside Zendaya and Hunter Schafer, and was found unresponsive at the family home in Oakland, California, on 31 July.
In a statement posted on Facebook, his mother Lisa Cloud confirmed her son had been in “deep grief” after the death of his father and his funeral which took place in Ireland a week before the actor’s death.
She wrote: “Friends, I want you all to know I appreciate your love for my family at this shattered time. I also want you to know that although my son was in deep grief about his father’s untimely death from mesothelioma, his last day was a joyful one.
“He was reorganizing his room and placing items around the house with intent to stay a while in the home he loved. He spoke of his intent to help provide for his sisters at college, and also help his mom emotionally and financially. He did not intend to end his life.”
The actor had posted a picture of his dad on Instagram on 14 July – alongside the message “miss u breh”.
