A man has been charged with the murder of a teenage actor who had a small role in the next Harry Potter film.

Eighteen-year-old Robert Knox played Ravenclaw student Marcus Belby in The Half-Blood Prince.

He died in hospital after being stabbed in a fight outside a bar early on Saturday in Sidcup, south-east England.

Karl Bishop, 21, is being kept in custody after appearing in court accused of killing the teenager and hurting five other people.
