It appears that Daniel Radcliffe has found his new flame post his split from Laura O'Toole early this year. The British movie star has fallen for an Australian young lady, identified as Cassi McKay, during their brief meeting at last year AFI awards.
Radcliffe and McKay were introduced to one another by singer David Campbell, it's been claimed. They first met during the awards event where she happened to be among the musicians to perform at the event. They had a "two-minute chat" and even posed for photographs.
Their brief meeting apparently left deep impression to Radcliffe as he soon thereafter tried to track down her number. "She stared at me the whole night and I was going to get her number and then I couldn't find her," so he said. "I must have walked around that party for an hour trying to look for this girl, like some sad pathetic dweeb."
McKay herself, who's an insurance worker, couldn't believe when Radcliffe "said he was looking for the girl." She's having a boyfriend that they've been dating for almost three years. Though so, McKay said she would be keen to organize a second meeting with Radcliffe while she was in the U.K. "I've told my boyfriend about him and I'd be keen to meet up," so she said.
Is preparing to fly to Radcliffe's native city of London next week McKay, nevertheless, insisted she wasn't looking to cash in on the actor's public profile. "I hope people don't think I want my 15 minutes of fame or anything," she stated. "My Mum read (Radcliffe's) comments in the paper and said, 'I think he's talking about you'."
