Euphoria star Angus Cloud has offered his thoughts on the drama's season two opener, calling the reveal about Fezco's backstory "f**king insane".

Angus, who plays drug dealer Fez in the gritty HBO series, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the revelations involving his character's childhood, admitting that he had no idea that creator Sam Levinson would go in the direction he did.

In Euphoria's season two premiere 'Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door', a flashback confirmed that Fez had ultimately followed in the footsteps of his grandmother, a one-time drug queenpin.

"I had some ideas, but no, I didn't," Angus said when asked if he knew about his onscreen grandma's past. "I didn't imagine what Sam imagined.

"Yeah, it definitely blew my mind," he added. "I mean, that opening sequence – am I allowed to cuss? – is f**king insane."

Angus also opened up about the other shock twist in season two's first episode – the moment Fez's 'brother' Ashtray attacks and kills his supplier Mouse.

"It was a shock reading it for sure. And I was sad because I love Meeko Gattuso. He plays Mouse, and he's just the best," the actor admitted. "I love working with him. He's hilarious, and just an all-around good guy, so I was sad to see him go, man."

As tragic as Mouse's death may have been, Angus argued that it was realistic, too.

"But I was like, 'F**k,' when something so serious just happens so quickly, in a second – that's how it happens in real life. And it's just like, 'Holy shit', seeing that play out.

"Because in real life people don't have that much time to think," he continued. "So that's kind of what the viewer gets to experience, just how fast a situation like that goes down."

Euphoria airs Sunday nights on HBO in the US, with Sky Atlantic and NOW showing it in the UK.
