Yesterday (July 31), it was confirmed by Angus' family that the Euphoria actor had passed away. He was just 25 years old.
In a statement, Angus' family said: "It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today."
"We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss."
Since the news broke, fans have been sharing their tributes to the promising young actor. Angus' co-stars and friends have also posted photos and shared their condolences to his family following the tragic news.
Leading the tributes to Angus are his Euphoria co-stars, including his on-screen brother Javon Walton, Alexa Demie, Eric Dane, Colman Domingo, Storm Reid and Kathrine Narducci. Euphoria executive producer Drake and showrunner Sam Levinson also shared their condolences and tributes to the actor.
Javon, who played Ashtray on the show, posted a sweet picture of him and Angus hugging alongside the caption: "Rest easy brother." On his Instagram story, Javon shared another photo of the duo with the caption: "Forever family".
In a statement, Sam Levinson wrote: "There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon. He also struggled, like many of us, with addiction and depression. I hope he knew how many hearts he touched. I loved him. I always will. Rest in peace and God Bless his family."
Alexa shared a single broken heart emoji shortly after the sad news broke.
