'Wish we could've had one more hug': Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney speak about Angus Cloud's death

“This heartache is real..."

Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney, both co-stars and close friends of Angus Cloud, have broken their silence following his sudden and tragic death at the age of 25

The news of his passing came just one week after he laid his father to rest, someone whom he considered his “best friend”.

Zendaya took to Instagram earlier this morning to pay a heartfelt tribute to her Euphoria co-star and onscreen saviour. 

She wrote: “Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor).”

“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).”

Zendaya continued: “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.”

“My heart is with his mother and family at this time and please be kind and patient as grief looks different for everyone,” she finished.

Sydney Sweeney, who played alongside Angus as Cassie Howard in ‘Euphoria’, shared a series of photos of the two of them together. 

She described Angus as an open soul with the kindest heart, bringing laughter and joy wherever he went. 

Struggling to find the right words to express her grief, Sydney conveyed how much Angus would be missed by all who knew him. 

“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.”

She added: “This heartache is real and I wish we could've had one more hug and 711 run. All my love is with you.”

The loss of such a talented and cherished young actor has deeply affected family, friends and fans all over the globe, leaving everyone mourning the passing of a shining star taken too soon.

No cause of death has been confirmed.
