*Please note, this post discusses suicide.
Lisa Cloud, the mother of late Euphoria star Angus Cloud, has shared a message following her son’s death – and she’s urging the world to live with kindness.
In a post shared publicly on Facebook, Lisa began by thanking everyone for their love during what she describes as a “shattered time.” The family is not only mourning the sudden loss of Angus who passed away last week, aged 25, but also his father Conor who passed away from mesothelioma one week earlier.
In her message, Lisa shared that despite the reports surrounding her son’s death which suggest he committed suicide, his last day was a “joyful one” where he was planning for the future.
“He was reorganising his room and placing items around the house with intent to stay a while in the home he loved. He spoke of his intent to help provide for his sisters at college, and also help his mom emotionally and financially. He did not intend to end his life. When we hugged good night we said how much we loved each other and he said he would see me in the morning.”

“I don’t know if or what he may have put in his body after that. I only know that he put his head on the desk where he was working on art projects, fell asleep and didn’t wake up. We may find out that he overdosed accidentally and tragically, but it’s abundantly clear that he did not intend to check out of this world.”
Lisa goes on to praise her son for his achievements and the person that he was:
“He gave and received so much love and support to and from his tribe. His work in ‘Euphoria’ became a lightning rod for his generation and opened up a conversation about compassion, loyalty, acceptance and love. His head injury 10 years ago miraculously didn’t result in death as it almost always does. He was given 10 bonus years and filled them with creativity and love.”
She ends her message, “To honour his memory, please make random acts of kindness part of your daily life.”
No cause of death has been shared to date, however the Oakland Police Department is currently investigating.
