Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he met his current partner Erin Darke during a rather saucy situation.

The two performers starred alongside each other in 2013's Beat Generation biopic Kill Your Darlings, and one scene in particular sparked the beginning of their real-life romance.

Chatting on People TV’s 'Couch Surfing' series recently, the 29-year-old reflected on their meeting and how a NSFW scene changed everything.

In this scene, Darke's character actually performs oral sex on Radcliffe's poet Allen Ginsberg – in a library of all places.

"It'll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day because of what our characters do with each other," he laughed. "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."

Nice save there, Dan.

Elsewhere on the show, Radcliffe also took time to explain why he'll never get sick of chatting about his Potter experience with fans.

"When I was young, I met an old punk who had been in a band that I really liked. 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 noted.

"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'."
