Radcliffe And Cast Pay Tribute To Slain Co-star
Daniel Radcliffe and his Harry Potter co-stars will wear white wristbands at the London premiere of their new movie in tribute to murdered actor ROBERT KNOX.
Eighteen year old Knox had just finished filming his small part in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince when he was stabbed to death while defending his brother outside a nightclub in Kent, England last May (08).
The cast and crew have decided to wear the commemorative bracelets on the red carpet at the film's world premiere on Tuesday (07Jul09) in honour of Knox and all victims of knife crime.
The film's star Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the title role in the wizard franchise, admits he was moved by Knox's murder, which he has described as a "tragedy".
He says, "I won't pretend I knew him incredibly well, or was his best friend on-set, but I knew him and liked him, and what happened to him was obviously tragic and awful."
Knox's killer, 22 year old Karl Bishop, was sentenced to life in prison in March (09) for the crime.
