The 2000’s were flooded by film adaptions of young adult novels. The series that started it all, unquestionably, is the Harry Potter series. Penned by J.K. Rowling, the series has garnered over a billion dollars at the box office.
With such a strong presence in pop culture, starring in a Potter movie meant that you could be seen by tens of millions of people. Thus was the case with Rob Knox, who played Marcus Belby in the latter instalments of the film series.
Drugs had nothing to do with his tragic death, nor was it a defect with his body or a horrific accident.
It was murder. Knox tried to defend his younger brother when a man attempted to stab him. Knox took the brunt force and later died from his wounds.
