Daniel Radcliffe - Radcliffe Gets Thumbs Up From Girlfriend's Father
Daniel Radcliffe has won the approval of his new girlfriend's father - he's branded the Harry Potter star "a lovely guy".
Last month (Jul11), the British actor revealed he had been secretly dating, but refused to name the woman he was "very much in love with".
However, Radcliffe has since been snapped holding hands with his mystery partner in New York, where he's currently starring in Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and she's been identified as production assistant Rosanne Coker.
Radcliffe first met the 22-year-old brunette, a fellow Brit, while shooting Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in 2007, and they continued to work together on the final two boy wizard movies, The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2.
Coker's dad, Malcolm, has confirmed his daughter is dating Radcliffe, but insists their relationship only turned romantic last year (10).
And he's given the actor the thumbs up.
Malcolm Coker tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "I don't want to say too much really as they would really prefer to keep things quiet. But Rosanne has worked on the last three Harry Potter films, so she and Daniel have known each other quite a long time. They have been going out for just over a year now.
"I have met Daniel and he is a lovely guy. I'm just really happy for Rosanne and as long as she is happy that is all that matters to me. No other parent would ask any more. I know it's not a normal life they live. But they have a lot of fun together and, at their age, what more could you ask? Who knows where it is going to lead?"
