As he prepares for his impending Broadway musical debut in the How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying schedule, Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe actor has been seen by celebrity spotters out on the town with Olive Uniacke, 19, stepdaughter of Harry Potter producer David Heyman. The showbiz couple recently went to Russia to celebrate the Radcliffe’s 21st birthday and have been spotted at a cricket match in England, according to those in the know. A source close to the couple stated, “Olive and Daniel have known each other ever since the Harry Potter films started. They were close to each other a few years ago but the relationship fizzled out then. Even so, they have always remained friends”. Radcliffe and Olive Uniacke – to use the girl’s full name – seem to be growing closer all the time, and many celebs probably agree that this is a match made in heaven. “Olive has money in her own right,” the source said. “So is certainly not a gold-digger. Olive is a lovely young lady – and she and Daniel have been close for a long time. She was always in and out of his dressing room during filming and she has always been really protective over him.” Looks like there will be a special member of the audience, next time Radcliffe appears on stage. Let’s hope he keeps his mind on the job and turns in a fabulous run of appearances on stage!
