Tragedy befalls young Half-Blood Prince actor

We are saddened to report that BBC News announced earlier this morning that the actor who plays the role of Marcus Belby in Half-Blood Prince was tragically killed late last night in London. Robert Knox was stabbed to death while intervening on behalf of his younger brother just outside Metro Bar on Station Road in Sidcup.

Belby is known to Potter fans as the Ravenclaw student who aspires to be a part of the Slug Club. According to The Telegraph, Warner Bros. has released the following statement:

“We are all shocked and saddened by this news and at this time our sympathies are with his family.”

Similarly, all of our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
