The untimely death of Angus Cloud, the 25-year-old actor known for his role in the hit HBO series Euphoria, has been attributed to an accidental overdose, dispelling earlier speculations of suicide.

The actor passed away on July 31, and according to TMZ, the cause was a lethal combination of fentanyl, cocaine, and methamphetamine.

Initially, the family had disclosed that Cloud had been struggling with personal issues, leading many to suspect that he might have taken his own life.

However, the overdose was not intentional but a tragic consequence of mixing various potent substances. Authorities in Alameda County further revealed that Cloud suffered acute poisoning due to a cocktail of drugs that also included benzodiazepine.

Angus Cloud was discovered lifeless in his home by his mother on the morning of July 31. She immediately alerted emergency services, suspecting an overdose, and Cloud was pronounced dead at the scene.

The family later stated that Cloud had been facing significant emotional challenges since the death of his father in May and had ongoing mental health issues.

Cloud gained fame for his role as Fez, a laid-back drug dealer, in Euphoria, one of HBO's most-watched series.

The show has received both critical acclaim and scrutiny for its dark portrayal of issues affecting American teenagers, including drug addiction and sexual assault.

Cloud was discovered for the role while walking on the streets of Brooklyn, New York, with his friends. Besides Euphoria, he also appeared in films like 'North Hollywood' and 'The Line.'

In a public statement, the family requested privacy as they continue to process this devastating loss, adding, "We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for all."
