Rare sighting of Daniel Radcliffe and girlfriend
The actor is photographed for only the second time alongside Erin Darke, whom he’s reportedly been dating for years.
As Professor McGonagall would say, patience is a virtue — and it seems patience has paid off for curious Daniel Radcliffe fans. After nearly two years of reported dating, the “Harry Potter” icon was photographed for only the second time alongside his girlfriend, Erin Darke, looking relaxed and happy.
Radcliffe first met the Michigan native in October 2012 when they were shooting the (loosely historical) drama, “Kill Your Darlings.” He played legendary beat poet Alan Ginsberg and she played Gwendolyn. It’s unclear, however, whether they became an exclusive item right away, or if it took some time.
Though reports surfaced that the duo looked rather cozy during a dinner in honor of the movie at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013, it wasn’t until seven months later, in August 2013, that they were actually pictured together — and even then, the photos didn’t reveal much. Daniel was snapped jumping into a car with Erin outside the Noel Coward theater in London after his performance of “The Cripple of Inishmann.” At the time, they both seemed far more focused on avoiding the cameras than greeting each other. In other words, the pics were suggestive, but hardly conclusive.
