To Rob Knox: From Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Etc. Look who’s written short notes of tribute to a murdered friend? It’s Harry Potter aka Daniel Radcliffe himself, his BFF Ron Weasley aka Rupert Grint, and several cast and crew members of the Harry Potter series.
Okay, for those of you who are new to this story, Rob Knox is an actor who played Marcus Belby in the Harry Potter movies who was murdered last year by a certain Karl Bishop. In honor of their fallen friend, the cast and crew of Harry Potter paid tribute to him by writing messages which he will, up there in heaven, hopefully read.
Daniel’s tribute went: “Dear Rob, We are all proud to have known you and devastated to have lost you. It is terrible just to write this note. Rest in peace, Dan xxx. To everyone else who reads this remember ‘The dead don’t die. They look on and help’.”
And Rupert’s message goes like this: “Rob, It was an honour to have known you and whenever I’m on the Southend strip I’ll be thinking of you. Rest in peace mate.”
Rest in peace, indeed, Rob. And we offer our belated condolences to Rob’s family and friends.
Note: For those of you who are wondering what became of the murderer, he’s been convicted and is on his way to serve his sentence in prison.
