Cause of Death:
Drug Overdose

Death Summary: Renfro died at the age of 25 from an apparently accidental overdose on heroin/morphine. His body was found in his apartment in Los Angeles.

Who was Brad Renfro : Brad Renfro was a young actor who had appeared in mostly independent films.

Perhaps most famously, he was the kid in the film version of John Grisham's The Client, and later went on to appear in such films as Apt Pupil (based on the Stephen King novella), Bully, Ghost World, and Deuces Wild.

His last role was in the film adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, Rules of Attraction) novel The Informers. It had not yet been released at the time of his death.

There was a bit of controversy when Renfro was not mentioned in the annual Acedemy Award Memorial montage, but he was absent from it because he was apparently not a member of the academy.
