Darke is five years older than Radcliffe and with them now being 24 and 29, that isn’t a huge difference, but it is big when you’re 12 and 17.
I think I now understand why Radcliffe has a thing for older women — they aren’t harboring the remains of childhood crushes.
Sometime in 2012 — Darke and Radcliffe start dating. 18, 2013 — Kill Your Darlings premieres at Sundance.
Did they come out and say, “Our anniversary is May 22nd! According to a source who spoke with Us Weekly, “They were affectionate most of the night. They were a little more obvious outside the venue after they were leaving.” Aug. Radcliffe and Darke probably go see it in no one notices because they wear hoodies or something.
2013 — Darke attends a showing of Radcliffe’s play The Cripple of Inishmann. 30, 2013 — Radcliffe and Darke attend the Cinema Society screening of Kill Your Darlings and pose for photos with another person between them to dispel any suspicions of a possible relationship: Pin it Oct. (“Or something” meaning invisibility cloaks, of course.) April 2014 — Darke and Radcliffe visit a British grocery store in New York City and are snapped by paparazzi.
Or at least they leave in a car together following the performance. They bought food and went and sat in the park like it was nothing. And no one knew because he had on sunglasses and a cap! May 7, 2014 — Star magazine reports that Radcliffe and Darke are engaged, that they are headed to Paris to find “the perfect engagement ring,” that Rupert “Ron” Grint is going to be best man at the wedding, that it will take place on Lake Michigan, and that Emma “Hermione” Watson has already RSVP’d.
While Darke and Radcliffe have kept pretty quite about their relationship — as in, they didn’t have an Us Weekly photo shoot in which they professed their love for each other — the way they met is pretty obvious.
Darke and Radcliffe met on the set of Kill Your Darlings in which Radcliffe starred as Allen Ginsberg and Darke played a character named Gwendolyn who Radcliffe’s character hooks up with in the back room of a library. Nothing jump starts a relationship like pretending to perform fellatio on a guy who is fake resisting the fake fellatio because he’s pretending to be gay.
While we know how they met — or at least, we think we know, they’re very sneaky!
— there isn’t much other info available about their relationship.
Radcliffe once told Andy Cohen during an interview, “Yes, I am dating someone. the type I keep private.” Still, we’re able to gather a bit of insight into this couple.
Here’s a timeline of Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke’s relationship based on what we do know: Pin it Nov.
16, 2001 — Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is released.
Erin Darke probably doesn’t care because she’s 17 at the time and soooo over Harry Potter.
