Award-winning documentary (K)nox: The Rob Knox Story will be streaming exclusively on ITVX

In 2008, 18 year old Rob Knox was stabbed to death just days after filming his breakthrough role as Marcus Belby in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. As a rising star, his death made headline news, and stirred a wake-up call to address these types of crimes. However, years later, knife crime remains a serious issue not only in the UK but across the globe. This emotional documentary features interviews with family members, friends and Harry Potter cast including Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Tom Felton, David Yates, Dani Harmer and Blake Harrison, and includes archive interviews with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. The film takes a closer look into Rob’s life in the lead up to his untimely death and follows the police investigation into the case and the ultimate conviction of the perpetrator, delivering a powerful anti-knife crime message. 

(K)nox: The Rob Knox Story is directed by Aaron Truss, produced by The Rob Knox Foundation (Colin Knox) and Nick Kenton. Executive producers are Aaron Truss and Joe Acres. Koulla Anastasi is executive producer for Woodcut International.

Since the documentary wrapped production in October 2020, it has toured the film circuit garnering a string of accolades - Winner Best Feature Documentary (London Independent Film Festival), Gold Winner (Latitude Film Awards), Audience Award (BELIFF London Film Festival), Official Finalist (Toronto Independent Film Festival & The Gold Movie Awards), Winner Best Documentary  (The Soho London Independent Film Festival) and Official Semi-Finalist (Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival).
