Euphoria fans delighted after learning Fezco's Irish connection

We're claiming him as our own now.

Fans of the hugely popular TV show Euphoria have discovered that one of the show's actors has a very strong Irish connection.

27-year-old Angus Cloud plays the character Fezco on the show, a college dropout turned drug dealer who provides a significant amount of support to our leading lady Rue (Zendaya).

While Angus was born and bred in California, it turns out his entire family hails from the Emerald Aisle, and many of them still live here.

In fact, Angus, whose full name is Conor Angus Cloud Hickey, has previously stated that he planned to move to Ireland before he got cast in the hugely popular teen drama.

Before he landed the gig, he had left California for New York, where he worked in food service between auditions. However, he had his heart set on travelling to Ireland. In 2019, he told the Wall Street Journal: "I just kinda went out to the east coast on a one-way type thing. I was going to move to Ireland. All my family live out there."

However, his plans to ship out here were understandably derailed when he landed the part of Fezco on the show, a role which saw him become a fan favourite.

Now, as season two of Euphoria hits our screens, many Irish fans are claiming Angus as one of our own.

"Fezco being Irish makes total sense," said one fan on Twitter.

Another wrote: "I don't watch Euphoria but idk how people didn't realise that the actor who plays Fez is clearly very obviously Irish. Honestly the most Irish looking American I've ever seen. There's about 17 of him in every village."

A third wrote: "Just found out that the drug dealer man who looks very Irish in Euphoria, is, in fact, Irish."
