Fezco of Euphoria
In two seasons of “Euphoria,” Angus played the drug dealer Fezco in the lead role. He once remembered being found in Brooklyn on the street. “I definitely thought it could be some kind of scam,” he admitted.
“Then they brought me back in and they showed me the role, and it made more sense”. He said to i-D. “Because I thought they stopped me because I appeared to be a star, so why not? I respond. “No, it’s because I appear to be a drug dealer.”
He added that he found the popularity of the series to be unexpected. He claimed, “The difference between me and everyone else that is famous is that they were mostly attempting to go get famous”. “They were putting in a lot of effort and certain that they would succeed. It was simply too fantastic of an opportunity for me to pass up. I didn’t expect things to progress this far.”
