Daniel Radcliffe reveals he met his girlfriend while filming a racy movie scene

How did you meet your partner? The standard answers are "at work", "through a mutual friend" or "in a bar" - but Daniel Radcliffe can top all of these.

The Harry Potter star first got to know his girlfriend Erin Darke when they filmed a racy sex scene together in 2013 film Kill Your Darlings.

In the movie, Erin's character Gwendolyn performs oral sex on Daniel's character, poet Allen Ginsberg, in a library.

In a recent interview, the 29-year-old actor named the meet-cute as "one hell of a story to tell our kids one day".

Speaking on People TV's Couch Surfing series, Daniel said: "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."

It's not the first time he has spoken out about their bizarre meeting, telling Playboy in 2015 that he "knew he was in trouble" when he filmed with her.

"That’s a wonderful record of us flirting for the first time. There’s no acting going on—not from my end, anyway," he admitted. "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."

Erin, known for her role as Cindy in the Good Girls Revolt, has previously opened up about her romance with Daniel, claiming that it works so well because he "innately understands her".

She told People: "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. He helps me make self-tapes sometimes. He’s a great reader, by the way. We’re both incredibly supportive of the other person’s career."

In his interview on People TV's Couch Surfing series, Daniel also discussed how he'll never get tired of talking about Harry Potter - no matter how many fans bring it up.

"When I was young, I met an old punk who had been in a band that I really liked," he said. "So I went up to him and asked him about it, and he literally said, 'I don't talk about it'. And that was kind of sad."

He continued: "I thought it would be sad to look back on this huge period of your life and not embrace it. As much as I'm happy to be doing other films now, I'm always genuinely very honoured when someone comes up and says, 'You were a huge part of my childhood.'"

And we'll never get tired of hearing about it, Daniel!
