    Tragedy has struck in England, as actor Rob Knox, who had just nabbed a minor role in the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, was stabbed to death in Southwest London on Saturday, May 24. According to police reports, the actor, who was just 18, became involved in a pub brawl and was subsequently knifed. Five others were injured in the melee, which police say was not gang-related, despite the recent rash of young fatalities in the city.

    In the sixth installment of the Harry Potter film franchise, which is due out later this year, Knox portrays Marcus Belby, a student at Ravenclaw. Warner Bros., who is releasing the film, is said to be shocked by Knox's loss.

    Our condolences go out to Knox and his family.
