Zendaya is honoring her late Euphoria co-star, Angus Cloud, whose death was announced on Monday.
Cloud’s cause of death is still unknown, family sources disclosed that he struggled with suicidal ideation following the recent passing of his father.
The news pierced the hearts of Cloud’s fans and peers everywhere, and Zendaya was no different. The 26-year-old penned a beautiful tribute to Cloud on Instagram expressing gratitude for the opportunity in getting to know him.
“Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor),” Zendaya wrote. “I’m so grateful I got the chance to know him in this life, to call him a brother, to see his warm kind eyes and bright smile, or hear his infectious cackle of a laugh (I’m smiling now just thinking of it) I know people use this expression often when talking about folks they love…’they could light up any room they entered’ but boy let me tell you, he was the best at it. I’d like to remember him that way. For all of the boundless light, love and joy he always managed to give us. I’ll cherish every moment.”
She continued, “My heart is with his mother and family at this time and please be kind and patient as grief looks different for everyone.”
Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney also honored Cloud Tuesday via Instagram. “Angus you were an open soul, with the kindest heart, and you filled every room with laughter,” she wrote. “This is the hardest thing ive ever had to post, and im struggling to find all the words. You will be missed more than you know, but I’m so blessed to have known you in this lifetime, and I’m sure everyone who has ever met you feels the same. This heartache is real and I wish we could’ve had one more hug and 711 run. All my love is with you.
Storm Reid also paid tribute to Cloud via her Instagram Story: “Angus made the sky look so pretty last night. what a tremendous loss for so many of us. can’t seem to wrap my mind around it. and even though the tears will continue to fall seeing pictures of his smile or funny snippets that make me giggle bring me comfort. please continue to pray for his soul and the souls of his family and friends. hug on your people and tell them you love them. check on them. call them. pop up on em. send them your current song. idfk just don’t take anything for granted life is so precious.”
