Hunter Schafer is reflecting on the loss of her Euphoria costar Angus Cloud nearly one year after his shocking death.

In a new interview for GQ’s Creativity Issue, the 25-year-old actress shared, “I’ve never had a friend that I was that close to and that was my age pass before.”

“It’s really surreal,” she said as she wiped away tears. “It doesn’t make sense. And yeah, it’s new. It’s a new kind of grieving.”

Schafer shared that grief about Cloud “comes randomly,” adding, “It will hit me when I’m on the f---ing toilet. It’s really … I don’t know. Grief is f---ing weird.”

She also shared her fond memories of her late costar, who portrayed Fezco (a.k.a. "Fez") on the drama series.

“People really fell in love with Angus,” she said. “He was really one of the heartbeats of Euphoria.

“It’s always the people that are just kind of a little too good for the world and a little too pure,” she added. “He was a f---ing angel. He was sunshine.”
