Although Daniel Radcliffe rarely speaks about his girlfriend, Erin Darke, but the pair have appeared in public together on several occasions. Here’s everything you should know…
Who is Daniel Radcliffe’s girlfriend
Erin, born September 10, 1984 in Michigan, USA, is an actress.
She’s acted in films including the Beach Boys biopic Love & Mercy and Oscar-nominated Still Alice. On the TV side, she’s taken on recurring roles in The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel and Good Girls Revolt.
When did they start dating
They started dating after they met on the set of the 2013 film Kill Your Darlings, in which they both featured. (Darke is an actor too and has appeared in hits including Still Alice and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.)
How did they meet
Both Daniel Radcliffe and Darke have previously spoken about their first meeting and how they first connected, with Darke telling People magazine: “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.”
Radcliffe echoed Darke’s sentiments on People TV’s Couch Surfing series, explaining that the two actually had to do a sex scene together: “It’ll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day because of what our characters do with each other. 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…
In a 2015 interview with Playboy, Radcliffe also opened up about his immediate attraction to Darke during their first scene together. “There’s no acting going on—not from my end, anyway,” he told the outlet. “There’s a moment when she makes me laugh, and I’m laughing as me and not as my character. She was incredibly funny and smart. I knew I was in trouble.”
Radcliffe reveal to Us Weekly in 2014 that the two really are best friends. “I think that’s the kind of relationship I always aspire to have with someone I’m in a relationship with. You want that person to be your best friend,” he said. “In the case of Erin, we definitely are.”
