Because England doesn’t allow handguns, in the back of my mind I’ve always thought, Gee, I bet getting a bar fight there would be a jolly good time. The danger of that, as an 18-year-old actor with a minor role in the next Harry Potter film found out, is inadvertently bringing fists to knife fight. How embarrassing.
Rob Knox, 18, was stabbed after he got caught up in a fight outside a bar in southwest London early Saturday, London’s Metropolitan Police said.
Knox plays Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in the upcoming film "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the sixth installment of the popular series set for release in November.
Knox was one of five young men taken to various hospitals after the brawl, police said. Among them was a 21-year-old who has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.
The fight did not appear to be gang-related, police added, but it puts the number of violent teenage deaths in London at 14 so far this year. [THR]
In typical understated British fashion, the Sun, in regards to the "knife-crime epidemic", is calling England "worse than Iraq." In related news, Knife-Crime Epidemic would be an awesome name for a metal band.
