Euphoria creator Sam Levinson told Hollywood Reporter: “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.” Other members of the show also shared their condolences online.

Before Euphoria, Angus had not done any acting. He was walking down the street in New York when casting scout Eléonore Hendricks noticed him. Angus at first thought of it as a scam but later met with Casting Director Jennifer Venditti and Sam Levinson who eventually made him a co-star in the series.
