But how did he gain such fame? Well, through his amazing acting performance in the coming-of-age HBO show, Euphoria. In the show, he portrays the role of Fezco – a drug dealer.
Read on to learn more about the actor, including his wiki, bio, age, family, net worth, casting process in Euphoria, and many more!
How old is Angus Cloud?
As of this writing, Cloud is 23 years of age. He celebrates his birthday every year on July 10. His zodiac sign is Cancer.
Born in 1998, he was raised in the suburbs of Oakland, California. His birth name is Conor Angus Cloud Hickey.
Talking about his education, he initially attended a regional school. Later, he enrolled at the Oakland School for the Arts in the School of Production Design – the same as his co-star Zendaya.
As per his interview with GQ Magazine, Cloud focused on technical theater at the acting academy and spent his time building the sets and lighting the stage.
Angus Cloud has Irish family roots
Cloud is a private person and prefers to keep his family details under the wraps. Due to that, it’s still unknown what his dad and mother’s name is, as well as if he has any siblings or not.
However, in his interview with WSJ Magazine in July 2019, the actor revealed that he is Irish and all of his family members still reside in Ireland.
The disclosure of his family came when Cloud mentioned that before he was cast in Euphoria, he was planning to move to Ireland with his family for a while. His words were, “I was gonna move to Ireland for a while. All my family lives out there.”

As he continued, he told the Magazine that he had intended to “live out there, be working.” However, his fate changed when he was cast in the HBO Max hit show, and he continued to reside in the United States.
Although he hasn’t disclosed any further details about his family, reports suggest that his parents are professors by profession.
As his family is from Ireland, he has Irish roots from his parents, and his ethnicity is reported to be British. But, as he was born and raised in the United States, he holds American nationality.
How tall is Angus Cloud?
As of this writing, Cloud’s exact height remains unknown. His IMDb profile states that he stands at a towering height of 5 feet 11 inches or 1.8 meters. However, other outlets have reported him to be 5 feet 8 inches or 1.72 meters tall.
‘Euphoria’ is Angus Cloud’s first acting gig
Although Cloud had attended an acting school, he was yet to make his acting debut. He used to work at a chicken-and-waffles restaurant close to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
One day, he was walking down a Manhattan street where he was stopped by a female representative who claimed she was working for a casting company. The representative was Jennifer Venditti, and she asked him if he would come in to read for a new TV show – Euphoria.
Cloud was initially confused and thought that Venditti was scamming him. In his interview with GQ Magazine, he said, “I was confused and I didn’t want to give her my phone number. I thought it was a scam.”
However, he gave her his phone number and went to the read. When he was there, he saw some serious people sitting across a nondescript room and immediately realized that it wasn’t a scam.
After the first reading, he was called again for the second reading, and this time it was with the show’s pilot director, Augustine Frizzell. His performance impressed the directors, and he was cast to play the role of Fezco in Euphoria.

He canceled his plan to move to Ireland and went to Los Angeles, where he began shooting the first season of Euphoria for around eight months. And although everything was happening in real-time, everything felt surreal for Cloud.
When the show aired on June 16, 2019, it received an overwhelming response from the audience, critics, and basically everyone. Later, the show was renewed for a second season and premiered on HBO Max on January 9, 2022.
Most recently, on February 4, 2022, it was announced that Euphoria was renewed for a third season. And it’s quite confirmed that Cloud will be reprising his role of a sweet-hearted drug dealer.
Coming over to Cloud’s acting gigs following his big break, he made a cameo in the 2019 TV show The Perfect Women and played the role of Walker in the 2021 movie titled North Hollywood.
Now, he is busy filming his two upcoming movies: The Line and Your Lucky Day. After those projects are wrapped up, if everything goes well, he will be working on the third season of Euphoria.
How much is Angus Cloud’s net worth?
Although he has made his presence felt in the entertainment industry, Cloud is still a newbie and only has three acting gigs to his name. So, it’s evident that he might not have a huge net worth compared to his co-stars.
Reports suggest that Cloud has an estimated net worth of around $230,000 – $400,000. But with several more projects lined up, it’s sure that those figures will rise up and will eventually reach millions someday.
