He was only nine years old when he first became a national celebrity in the hit sitcom Two And A Half Men alongside Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen.
During his ten years on the show, Angus saw Charlie plunge into a drug-induced public flame that eventually saw him fired in 2011 and replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
Around the same time, Angus himself was struggling with demands on his part, which increasingly included storylines involving drugs and sex.
He confessed in 2012 that he was starting to find the job “really tricky,” noting, “I’ve been on set with these people that I’ve been working with since I was 8 years old.”
On stage at PaleyFest, he expressed his discomfort about “doing the adult thing while I’m still not an adult.” I mean, I’m 18, but I’m not an adult.”
Later that year, he was baptized into a Christian ministry called the Forerunner Chronicles and announced that he wanted to get rid of his sitcom.
He urged viewers of Two And A Half Men to “stop watching it and fill your head with filth,” stating that he was disengaging himself from the project to avoid “contributing to the scheme of the enemy’.
