Harry Potter actor stabbed to death in bar fight!

I have some sad news to report this morning.

Rob Knox, a young man who played Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in the upcoming film “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince,” was stabbed to death last night.

Apparently he got caught up in a fight outside a bar and was unfortunately fatally injured.

I have no more information at this time, but I do send my condolences to the family.

    He was trying to protect his younger brother from a man who was carrying two blades. It;s sickening.

    This may sound really horrible, but I’m just glad it wasn’t a main character…but I do feel really bad because he was just trying to protect his little brother.

  • emily homuth

    this is horrible but it is definitly a noble way to die im sure he will be greatly missed and it is very sad that we never got to see him act

  • Yedi Weasley

    That is horrible!!!! This is just WRONG!!
    R.I.P Rob Knox!!

  • taylor1

    Danielle, i agree with you too. it horrible when ANYBODY dies. but you add to the fact that he was an actor in harry potter makes it even worse, but could you imagine if dan was killed?…that doesnt undermine the fact Rob is a human being and was killed, but i see what you’re getting @. *sniff*

    Hey Ninja Boy! Do you have anything to say for yourself.Would you like it if somebody you loved died!!!!! Do you have any feelings?! Anyways who cares. It’s bad if anyone dies out of senseless violence. I would have done the same thing to protect my little brother.

  • Weasleylover

    OMG. At first I heard it was one of the Weasley twins, and I freaked out. But it’s still SO horrible that he died, especially protecting his brother. But at least he died like a man, saving someone he loved. R.I.P

    Can I just say you lot know absolutely nothing about this case. It was horrible what happened, but there is more to this story, and Im sure when it all comes out, you will have a different opinion of the man who died trying to save his brother……. like the fact it was nothing to do with his brother. So just wait and see!!
