Conor Angus Cloud Hickey was born on 10th July 1998 in Oakland, California. He is the firstborn child of his parents and has two younger twin sisters. Although he expressed his interest in the theatres at his local high school, he was more inclined toward building sets and managing lighting for school plays. Cloud attended the School of Production Design at Oakland School for the Arts to sharpen his behind-the-scenes techniques.
Cloud may have enrolled at the Oakland school of theatre, however, he had no particular interest in the acting world. At the age of 18, Cloud was a regular high school graduate working as a waiter in New York City with no set plan for the future. Cloud had moved to New York from Oakland, California on a whim while visiting friends and decided he would not be getting a return ticket home. He found a job at a chicken and waffles restaurant located close to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and lived in Bushwick.
Before landing the opportunity to appear in ‘Euphoria,’ Cloud was toying with the idea of moving to Ireland. Although he was born and raised in Oakland, most of his family members live in Ireland and he was thinking about going out to spend some time with them as he rarely saw them.
Cloud began his acting career by chance when he was discovered on the streets of Manhattan by casting agent, Jennifer Venditti, who wanted him to go into the studio and read lines for an upcoming teen drama series based on high school students and their experiences with love, friendship, and trauma. Naturally, Cloud was reluctant to give the casting agent his phone number as he was certain it was a scam. Nonetheless, he took the chance and appeared before a casting crew to read his lines.
According to Cloud, he put his own spin on the provided lines and he was asked to come in for a second reading with the casting director of the TV series. He was picked for the part soon after and the cast flew out to Los Angeles to shoot the pilot. Things appeared to be moving too fast for the Oakland, California native as he had no experience acting in comparison to his castmates who had years of experience and acting lessons behind them. After shooting the pilot, Sam Levinson contacted Cloud to inform him that the show had been picked up and he was required to move to Los Angeles for the 8-month filming process.
Cloud immediately moved to LA but had trouble leasing an apartment as he had no credit history. He got through the entire filming period staying at Airbnb near Culver City lot. With absolutely no experience working in front of the camera, Cloud had no idea what to expect when it came to filming productions and shoots and admits he was extremely tired the first few weeks of filming. Unlike most upcoming actors who have to scout for managers, Cloud had the rare experience of being bombarded by managers seeking to represent him. Cloud eventually settled on someone he believed had a reasonable thought process.
Seeing how Cloud was an off-the-street pick, his character was supposed to be killed off in season 1 of the TV series. However, Cloud was a hit with the fans and his ability to put his own spin on the character had writers giving him a more solid position in the series with his own background story in the second season of the show.
Cloud may have stumbled onto a career as a television personality by being out on his lucky day however, he is currently all in. He has since made a cameo in ‘The Perfect Woman’ and appeared as ‘ Walker’ in the film ‘North Hollywood.’ Cloud’s character growth on Euphoria season 2 together with his role as ‘Walker’ on the Mikey Alfred directed ‘ North Hollywood’ left him a fan favorite and solidified his place in the entertainment industry. Cloud is also set to appear in the upcoming films ‘The Things They Carried’ and ‘Your Lucky Day.’ Besides working in the acting industry, Cloud has appeared in three music videos with artists Juice WRLD, Noah Cyrus, Karol G, and Becky G.
Due to his uncanny resemblance to the late rapper Mac Miller, fans on Twitter have been calling for him to be cast in the late rapper’s upcoming biopic. Cloud, however, remains reluctant to play the role. But who knows, he may ease into the role eventually.
Cloud may be a hit among the fans, but he remains quiet about his private life. In his defense, Cloud was swept off the streets with no acting skills or hopes of an acting career and thrown into the Hollywood industry without a minute to catch his breath. You can’t blame the guy for wanting a normal life. Fortunately for him, he has an ever-growing net worth to look forward to. Angus is also a big fan of everyone’s current favorite actress and co-star Zendaya and has expressed his admiration severally on his Twitter account.
