Some couples meet in school, some at the bar. Daniel Radcliffe, however, met his current girlfriend in a quite peculiar way— while filming an intimate scene together.

Chatting on People TV, Radcliffe, who’s currently starring in the TBS comedy Miracle Workers, talks about how the NSFW scene sparked the beginning of his real-life romance with girlfriend Erin Darke.

Radcliffe, 29, starred in the 2013 film Kill Your Darlings opposite Darke’s character Gwendolyn who performs oral sex on his character, poet Allen Ginsburg — in a library of all places.

“It’ll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day because of what our characters do with each other,” he laughed.

The actor gushed about how he now views the scene as a “sweet record” of his first meeting with Darke. “Our characters are meeting and flirting with each other, so there is this kind of sweet record of us just meeting for the first time and flirting,” he said.

During the show, Radcliffe discussed his time filming the Harry Potter series and said that he’ll never get tired of speaking about it with fans. “As much as I’m happy to be doing other films now, I’m always genuinely very honored when someone comes up and says, ‘You were a huge part of my childhood,” he said.

“I thought it would be sad to look back on this huge period of your life and not embrace it,” the Harry Potter actor continued.


Darke also previously opened up about her romance with Radcliffe, gushing that he innately understands her. “One of the first things we bonded over was how much we really love what we do and there’s something that’s really beautiful and really lovely about being with someone who just innately understands that about you,” she told People.

“We’re both incredibly supportive of the other person’s career,” she continued.
