Beloved Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is reportedly engaged to longtime girlfriend Erin Darke. It appears that Harry Potter has met his real-life Ginny Weasley. Aw, young, wizarding love.
That sound you just heard was millions of hearts around the world simultaneously breaking. Thankfully, we know a quick fix.
Hollywood Life is reporting that Radcliffe, 27, proposed to Darke, 28 recently and she said yes. The couple, who have been together for five years, live together in Manhattan and met on the set of the film Kill Your Darlings in 2012. Radcliffe played the famous poet Allen Ginsberg in the film and Darke played Gwendolyn.
Darke is set to appear in the upcoming film Thank You For Your Service along with Miles Teller and Hayley Bennett. As for Radcliffe, the film and Broadway star just finished filming Beast of Burden and Jungle and is currently starring in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at London’s Old Vic Theatre.
In December 2016, Radcliffe’s holding company revealed that the child actor is worth £63.9 million or $77 million USD, earning the title of Britain’s highest paid actor last year. In 2016, Radcliffe appeared in three films, including Swiss Army Man, Now You See Me 2 and Imperium. The accomplished actor has admitted in the past that he doesn’t spend much money, but we think a nice engagement ring is worth the splurge. Maybe even two rings!
