Murder convicted in Harry Potter actor's death

A London jury convicted Karl Bishop, 22, in the murder of teenage actor Rob Knox, 18, a minor character in an upcoming Harry Potter movie. Knox was killed outside a London bar in May, shortly after wrapping up his role in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Knox played the character Marcus Belby.

I'm saddened by the loss of such a young and potentialled life, but for the life of me, I do not remember the roll of Belby in the book series. Any help?

My understanding is the character is slightly more important than Miscellaneous Hogwarts Student #34709-D, but not quite as significant as, say, Cho Chang, who was a third-tier love interest at her most interesting.

The Harry Potter wiki has this to say about Marcus Belby.
