“Angus was the funniest person ever. I would get so excited to see on the schedule that we would be working together because I knew we’d have the best day, laughing so hard,” Apatow wrote on Instagram on Aug. 2. “He was the sweetest and made everyone around him so happy. He was just the best. Words can’t really capture how magical of a person he was. My heart is broken.”

She added that getting to know and work with Cloud “was one of the greatest joys and blessings of my life. I will love you forever.”

The show’s creator, Sam Levinson, remembered the actor in a statement provided to NBC News.

“There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon,” Levinson said. “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. Rest in peace and God Bless his family.”
