Harry Potter Star: "Search for Mystery Girl a Joke"

Actor Daniel Radcliffe, the Harry Potter star, was searching for a mystery Australian girl he met at an Australia film awards party and two young Australian women have come forward, each claiming to be the beautiful stranger who bewitched the teenage actor during the party.

But the story took a new twist when Daniel Radcliffe's representatives said that his comments about being smitten with a girl who stared at him all night and then disappeared were just a joke.
"(Radcliffe's comments) were meant in jest, but sadly been blown out of all proportion," his London-based representative Vanessa Davies was quoted as telling New York's Daily News.

Newspapers in Australia have been searching for the mystery women after 18-year-old Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe told an interviewer he was smitten with a woman he met at a party, although he didn't manage to get her name and phone number.

"There was one girl there, oh, my God, she had these eyes that just looked at me like she wanted to pounce on me.....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 worth it," he told Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper in an interview published on Monday.

The paper said it had found two women who were at the party with Radcliffe and who both say they were the ones to catch Radcliffe's eye. But the women, Cassi Mackay (above pic right) and Savannah Blount(above pic left), both 23, say they already have boyfriends, describing Radcliffe as lovely, "charming and very polite."

Radcliffe, who started playing Potter in the popular Harry Potter movies when he was 11, has often spoken about not being able to find a girlfriend.
