ALL ABOUT ANGUS
Cloud is best known for his role as Fezco on the HBO series Euphoria.
The show was nominated for an Emmy Award.
Cloud was a main character on the show for two seasons.
In addition to appearing on this show, he landed roles in films such as North Hollywood, which hit theaters in 2021, and The Line, which hit theaters in 2023.
He was recently cast in a new horror film by Scream 6 directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet.
Cloud was set to star alongside Melissa Berrera in this film.
In addition to his film appearances, Cloud has appeared in several music videos.
He was cast by Noah Cyrus, Juice WRLD and Becky G.
Cloud opened diversity about surviving a near-death experience.
In an interview, he revealed that at the age of 15 he fell into a pit while taking a nightly walk.
He recalled, “Twelve hours later I woke up downstairs.”
“I was trapped.”
Eventually he climbed out of the pit and took the bus to his mother’s house.
Cloud told Variety, “It was bloody hard to climb out.”
“Because my skull was fractured but my skin wasn’t, so all the bleeding was internal and pressing against my brain.”
He said he just wanted to go home and get some rest, but his mother wouldn’t let him – which ultimately saved his life.
“I would have died,” he said. “She gave me some water and I started vomiting blood that was crimson as hell. shit was crazy So they took me to the children’s hospital and they saved my life. That’s where the scar comes from. You.” They cut my head open, they put some screws and a plate over where I lost my abilities and – dammit, they resealed me, and that’s it.”
In April 2023, Cloud’s former manager criticized him on social media, accusing him of struggling with an addiction, as reported by page six at that time.
Diomi Cordero shared a lengthy Twitter thread detailing his alleged working relationship with Cloud, which he says began when the two met in a rehab clinic.
Cordero said in his tweets that he’s doing the “graveyard shift” as a “mental health technician” while pursuing his dream of becoming an independent talent manager.
Just two weeks after starting his work there, he met Cloud – allegedly a patient at the time.
According to Cordero’s account, the pair are said to have grown close and began working together in April 2021.
In his tweets, he claimed Cloud’s affairs were far from fine and he hired a publicist and new “acting and fashion agents” for him.
They helped him “get health insurance” and more.
Cordero tweeted, “This intervention allowed Angus to regain control of his personal and professional life.”
He also claimed that not only Cloud’s professional life but also his personal life was a mess when he came.
He claimed the actor’s personal affairs were in a “state of disarray.”
Cordero claimed that Cloud was fine for a time, despite being surrounded by friends who he said threatened the actor’s apparent sobriety.
In a tweet, he wrote, “Your reckless behavior and lack of concern for Angus’s recovery presented a significant impediment to his progress and ultimately contributed to his relapse.”
Cloud has not publicly commented on addiction issues or sobriety, nor has he responded to Cordero’s claims.
