Daniel Radcliffe raised eyebrows when he was spotted in New York City walking hand-in-hand with a pretty — but unknown, at least to celebrity watchers — brunette. But she has since been identified as his new girlfriend, who hails from the UK.

The woman is Rosanne Coker, the 22-year-old daughter of a London painter and decorator. Her mother designs birthday cards.
She worked as a production assistant on “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” in 2007, according to London’s Daily Mail.
They have actually known each other for quite a while. They worked in four films together. Three were Harry Potter films, and Radcliffe’s most recent, “The Woman in Black,” a horror film still in production.
Even more surprising, the pair has been dating for more than a year.
Coker has been traveling between her family’s home in Surrey and Radcliffe’s luxury apartment in New York, according to the Mail.
Radcliffe, 22, and his girlfriend touched off a scramble when they were spotted in casual clothes walking down a New York sidewalk.
Radcliffe wore a plain blue T-shirt and shorts while Coker opted for black leggings, a lilac vest and a pair of flip-flops.
Radcliffe is considered one of Britain’s most eligible bachelors. He’s worth an estimated $60 million.
A friend said Rosanne is athletic and played on sports teams at school.
Radcliffe revealed last month that he was dating. “I’ve got a girlfriend at the moment, who I am very much in love with. So you know, we’ll see where that goes,” he told Larry King.
Radcliffe was previously linked with Olive Uniacke, 20, a London society girl. But their relationship has since been downgraded to “just friends.”
She’s the stepdaughter of Harry Potter producer David Heyman.
His last acknowledged girlfriend was Irish actress Laura O’Toole, now 26, but the broke up in early 2008.
