“Euphoria” actor Angus Cloud died at the family’s home in Oakland, California, on July 31.
The 25-year-old actor was previously grieving the loss of his father, who passed away the week before. His mother, Lisa Cloud, previously stated her son did not mean to take his own life.
Now, she is revealing the details surrounding her final conversation with Cloud.
What Did Angus Cloud Say To His Mom Before He Passed Away?
Angus Cloud told his mother he loved her and would “see her in the morning” the night he passed away.
“He was so beautiful and creative,” she continued. “He loved his home, and he loved this little, tiny room.” Lisa points to a wooden desk splattered with paint reminiscent of Jackson Pollock. She pauses and shakes her head, her voice growing mournful: “This is where my boy passed away.”
On July 31, his mother found Angus Cloud in a chair slumped over his desk. “I started shaking him and screaming. I pushed him hard, and he fell on the floor. I tried to resuscitate him — mouth to mouth — and I was compressing him,” she said, sobbing. “I was screaming for my neighbor because I didn’t want to leave him and call 911, and I just kept at it until they took him away.” She wipes away a tear. “I miss him so much. He was the love of my life.”
Angus Cloud Dies From Accidental Overdose
The Alameda County Coroner confirmed Cloud suffered acute intoxication from an accidental overdose. Fentanyl, benzodiazepines, cocaine, and methamphetamine were found in his system.
“It was predominantly the central nervous system depressants. It started to slow his heart and slow his breathing,” Lisa explained. “He got tired from lack of oxygen. Everything slowed down, and eventually, his heart stopped, and he went to sleep. But he didn’t kill himself.”
She added, “He went out at his total power, his total beauty, his total influence, and the reaction that everyone has had is very moving to me. You know, he’s not just an actor who overdosed. He was a beautiful soul, so people miss him so much.”
Cloud’s family broke the news of his passing by saying, “It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. As an artist, a friend, a brother, and a son, Angus was special to us in so many ways. Last week, he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss.”
The message continued, “The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. Angus was open about his battle with mental health, and we hope his passing can remind others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence. We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for everyone. We ask for privacy now as we are still processing this devastating loss.”
