After making a name for himself at age 11 starring in Joel Schumacher's adaptation of John Grisham's The Client, Renfro fulfilled the grim destiny of many child actors, descending into a life of constant drug use and trouble with the law. The Knoxville, TN native had been arrested for substance abuse and/or possession at least three times before being found dead of a heroin/morphine overdose in his LA apartment.
