Angus Cloud’s mother had reportedly dialled 911, alleging a "possible overdose" hours before the actor was pronounced dead.

The actor, who played drug dealer Fezco in Euphoria, was confirmed dead on Monday in a statement from his family. He was 25.

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," they said in a statement to TMZ.

"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."
