Angus Cloud Revealed How He Broke His Skull and Got That Scar
In a new interview with Variety, Angus put the rumors about his scar — yes, it’s very much real — to rest and shared exactly how he got it. Freakily, it all happened on a Friday the 13th in 2013 in Oakland, California, the Euphoria star’s hometown. According to Angus, the scar origin story starts with him getting separated from his friends while walking around downtown.
While wandering around solo in the dark, Angus failed to notice a construction pit was right in front of him and, thus, fell in. “I woke up 12 hours later at the bottom. I was trapped. I eventually climbed out after — I don’t know how long.
It was hella hard to climb out,” he recounted. Why, you might ask? Well, just because his skull was broken. “But my skin wasn’t, so all the bleeding was internal, pressing up against my brain,” the actor continued. “But they wasn’t gonna find me down there. I found myself. Or God found me, whatever you want to call it.”
Not only did Angus break his skull, but he also broke his fingers in the fall. Somehow, he still managed to escape the 10-feet-deep ditch, albeit with blurry vision. “I didn’t feel no pain,” Angus added. “I was in survival mode, you feel me?”
As one does after climbing out of a deep ditch with multiple broken bones, Angus then took the bus and headed to his mother’s house. “I was 14 or 15,” Angus said. “She thought I was on drugs, ’cause my pupils was hella dilated. I was trying to tell her what happened, but I could only start a sentence — I couldn’t finish it. So I was like, ‘I’m just gonna go sleep in my bed.’”
Seeing how grave his concussion was, Angus’s mother did not allow him to lie down, which he now acknowledges saved his life. “I would have died. She gave me some water, and I started throwing up hella mouthfuls of crimson red blood. Sh*t was crazy,” Angus continued. “So then my mama took me to the children’s hospital, and they saved my life. That’s what the scar’s from.”
However, the scar is not from the fall itself, but rather the surgeries he had to undergo to remedy the damage. “They cut my head open, they put some screws and a plate over where I broke my skull and — sh*t, sealed me back up, and that was that,” Angus recounts, sharing that he also spent five days in the ICU “loaded off morphine” and some extra days in non-intensive care units before he was finally discharged.
“The brain is so fragile,” Angus added. “It was damn near like nothing really happened. I’m so blessed to just have minor brain damage. You know, it’s so minor it ain’t even really worth speaking about.” The Angus Cloud, everyone. Just in case we couldn’t love him more.
