In further updates, reported by TMZ, the HBO star’s mom is said to have called 911 to report a “possible overdose”, with a source telling the outlet that Angus had been struggling with his mental health.
The up-and-coming actor had reportedly been “battling severe suicidal thoughts” after getting back from Ireland last week after burying his dad.

The statement concluded: “We hope the world remembers him for his humour, laughter, and love for everyone.
“We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss.”
Angus rose to fame on Euphoria playing drug dealer Fezco O’Neill and quickly became a fan favourite.
This was his first time acting, having been scouted for the role while walking around New York City.
Then casting director Jennifer Venditti met with him and series creator Sam Levinson eventually made him a co-star in the series alongside Zendaya for its first two seasons.
Levinson told the Hollywood Reporter: “There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, talented, and 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.”
Angus also had a supporting role in his first film, The Line, premiering earlier this year at Tribeca Festival.
He was recently cast to co-star in Scream 6 and had finished filming his role, with the film set to be released in April next year, a source confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter.
