Subject: Potter actor stabbed to death-Robert Knox

Written By: ninny on 05/25/08 at 4:48 pm

HARRY Potter actor Robert Knox has been stabbed to death outside a London pub as he desperately tried to protect his little brother.

Knox, 18, who played student Marcus Belby in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, due out in November, waded in to defend Jamie, 16, when they were confronted by a crazed attacker armed with two knives.

It is the number one item on the news over here, and this is adding to the escalation of the youth stabbings in London.

He was a celebrity
Knox completed filming of the latest Harry Potter last Tuesday and had signed to appear in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, the seventh film in the franchise. He had been acting since the age of 11 and had appeared in the 2004 film King Arthur, the BBC comedy After You've Gone, The Bill and Tonight with Trevor McDonald on ITV and the Channel 4 reality show Trust Me, I’m A Teenager

I see. As some of these overseas obits, they never give the 'former' acting news...


C'mon people we have to fight for 'KNIFE' control!

The unfortunate soul met his end in a town not far from where I live!  :o

It won't be safe to walk the suburban streets soon... :-\\

Such are the wonders and vagaries of the British legal system that, if the assailant keeps his nose clean while inside, he could be out within 4 years... ::)

NO disrespect, but a working actor is not a celebrity.

Yeah, well, the guy who invented the Pringles can wasn't in the supermarket tabloids every day, but somebody on this board deemed him a celebrity!

I believe I added the Prngles guy based on the WEBSTER UNIVERSITY DICTIONARY: Celebrity: renown, fame....Without the new can, we'd just have an ordinary bag..so logically, if you mention potato chips in a can, people would first think Pringles, and although we did not know his name- he was 'acclaimed' i.e.renown.

An actor in a Harry Potter movie not seen, may just be premature...as if he were not 'celebrated' or no-one can even id something of renown, he may not fit...if the character is recognized in the movie, YES, we can even use him as a trivia example saying'remember that (bully,best buddy, or ?) in (MOVIE),he was killed in a stabbing.

How does everyone know Michael Nesmiths mother helped create white-out,(as legend hs it), we used it but did it matter who created it...I may be better off believing they are a-'CELEBRITY', if they can be considered a guest on the old tv show 'I'VE GOT A SECRET'...otherwise, why would they be on the show..so again,the Pringle can guy would be perfect for the show, the Harry Potter bit actor-most likely not!

He did have a few acting roles leading up to his role in Hary Potter,but I believe in this case it will be his manner of death that will deem him a celebrity.
