Having killed Voldemort, Harry Potter is ready for the next big step in life: marriage.

Asked in the latest issue of Parade, if he could see himself getting hitched, Daniel Radcliffe didn’t hesitate:

“Yes, absolutely,” the actor replied. “When growing up, I thought of marriage as being very official, drawing up a contract. It seemed slightly clinical to me. But then you meet somebody that you really love and you think, ‘Actually, I wouldn’t mind standing up in front of my friends and family and telling them how much I love you and that I want to be with you forever.'”

Daniel Radcliffe FTW

And Radcliffe isn’t talking in the abstract. He’s been dating Rosie Coker, a production assistant on the final Harry Potter movie, for awhile now.

“When Rosie’s here, every day seems better,” he gushes. “I’m not an easy person to love… I’m a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things. This year it’s fantasy football, which means Rosie has to listen to me talking 24 hours a day about this team. ‘Should I take this player out, do you think, darling?’ And she listens to it, and she loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness, all of those things that I hate about myself. She finds them cute. I guess that’s love.”

The young star also touched on his former alcohol habit again, explaining why he believed he had a problem and why he no longer imbibes:

“My inner life was being drowned. I’ve worked with Richard Harris, Gary Oldman, all those actors who went crazy when they were young, and I always wanted that. The idea of that kind of life and chaos was always so appealing to me. Unfortunately, the way I do it, there is no romance to it! [laughs] There is nothing glorious or triumphant about it – it was pathetic, boring, and unhappy.”
