(K)nox: The Rob Knox Story is a documentary that focuses on Rob Knox, the actor who portrayed Marcus Belby in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. A few days after he finished filming his role in the sixth Potter film, Knox was tragically murdered when he was stabbed multiple times while attempting to save his little brother. He was only 18 years old at the time of his death. The documentary focuses on Knox’s acting career, featuring interviews with director David Yates, Jim Broadbent (Professor Slughorn), and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), while also attempting to raise awareness of knife crime in the United Kingdom.

It’s a privilege to be involved with this extraordinary documentary. This film pays homage to a young man whose legacy has shone a light on knife crime, and his fame in the Harry Potter movie has created a unique vehicle to draw attention to the soul[-]destroying impact crimes of this nature have on so many lives.
