Brad Renfro

The star of The Client, Sleepers (above), Apt Pupil and Ghost World was born on July 25, 1982 and died January 15, 2008, at just 25 years of age.

Renfro, who was from Knoxville, Tennessee, made his way to Hollywood after a D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) officer recommended him to a casting agent. (The officer, Dennis Bowman, told the Knoxville News Sentinel that Renfro was “street smart and wise beyond his years.”)

The actor struggled for years with addiction, and died from acute heroin/morphine intoxication, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
