NEW YORK – Just a day after "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe said he was looking for a mystery girl he locked eyes with in Australia, a woman has come forward thinking she might be the one.
"There was one girl there, oh my God, she had these eyes that just looked at me like she wanted to pounce on me," Radcliffe, 18, told Sydney's Daily Telegraph regarding a girl he met in December backstage at the Australian Film Industry awards. "She stared at me the whole night and I was going to get her number and then I couldn't find her.
"I must have walked around that party for an hour trying to look for this girl, like some sad pathetic dweeb, but it would have been so worth it.
"I don't know her name, I can't remember her name," he said. "It was one of those things but she was stunning."
Cassi McKay, 20, came forward on Monday, telling the Advertiser of Adelaide that she, too, was backstage at the AFI awards — making eyes at the star — and even got him to pose for a photo with her.
"He was looking at me a bit, and I guess I was batting my eyelids back," said the pretty blonde, who was there playing trumpet in a band. "We said hello and had a quick chat."
McKay said she's not 100 percent certain if she's the girl, and added that she wouldn't dump her boyfriend anyway. But she would like to meet Radcliffe. ...
"I've told my boyfriend about him and I'd be keen to meet up," said McKay, who will be in London next week.
Meanwhile, Radcliffe's rep, Vanessa Davies, downplayed the actor's comments, saying they "were meant in jest, but sadly [have] been blown out of all proportion."
In an interview in Sunday's New York Daily News, Radcliffe, who still lives with his parents in London, said he's too busy to settle down.
"I do love girls, love talking to girls," Radcliffe told The News. "But at this point ... relationships would not be the best idea."
Radcliffe, worth an estimated $50 million, has complained in the past that "gold diggers" were always a worry and so many girls he met only liked him for his fame and money.
