Brad Renfro (1982–2008)

Born: July 25, 1982 in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA

Died: January 15, 2008 (age 25) in Los Angeles, California, USA

He was discovered at age 10 by director Joel Schumacher and was cast in the motion picture The Client (1994), which starred Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones. Although this would be his zenith, he went on to appear in other films, including The Cure (1995), Tom and Huck (1995), Sleepers (1996), and Apt Pupil (1998).

Addiction problems in his teens and early 20s led to several police arrests and hampered his career. He died of a drug overdose in January 2008, aged 25.
