Angus Cloud's sweet bond with 'best friend' dad he couldn't live without

Angus Cloud's late father, Conor Hickey, was the Euphoria star's 'best friend' according to the actor's family.

The talented performer has tragically died, aged 25, just one week after Conor's funeral. A statement released by Angus' family paid tribute to the special bond the two shared, saying: "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."

Angus shared a heartbreaking tribute to his father on his Instagram on July 14. Sharing a photo of his dad, beaming in a bright red hoodie, the actor captioned the post: "Miss you breh."

After hearing the news of the actor's passing, one fan heartbreakingly replied to the post, saying: "I hope you can both rest in heaven now."

Though Angus was born and raised in California, most of his family hail from Ireland and both of his parents worked as university professors throughout their life.

According to TMZ, Oakland Police Department responded to a 911 call at 11.30am by Cloud's mother reporting a "possible overdose." In a statement shared with The Mirror, a spokesperson for the force said: "The Oakland Police Department (OPD) is investigating a death that occurred today, July 31, 2023, just after 11:30 AM, in the 200 block of Euclid Avenue.

"The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene. The cause of death is unknown. There's no additional information being released at this time. This is an active death investigation."

Angus had struggled with his mental health, particularly in the wake of his father's passing, as his family's statement shared: "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 humour, laughter and love for everyone."

Following the tragic news of the actor's passing, Angus' famous friends have paid tribute to the star. Euphoria star actor Javon "Wanna" Walton, wrote: "Rest easy brother," and posted a picture of them on his Instagram story with the caption: "Forever family."

Rapper Drake also paid his condolences, sharing a photo of Angus taken in March last year at the Revolve Social Club in LA, with the caption: "Good soul" followed by a tearful emoji and a dove.

Meanwhile, HBO also released a statement to Variety saying, "We are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of Angus Cloud,” HBO said in a statement. “He was immensely talented and a beloved part of the HBO and Euphoria family.
