London (ANI): Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is said to have struck up a close bond with a Dolly Parton-impersonating transvestite. Sources have revealed that Radcliffe, 19, is enjoying dinners and nights out with Our Lady J, a striking blonde drag queen from New York, and they were spotted dining together on May 3.
Our Lady J, who makes a living singing tracks by Dolly Parton, Alanis Morissette and Nine Inch Nails, has been described as "fierce", "mind-blowing" and "the love child of Meat Loaf and Madonna" in reviews.
The two had met during Radcliffe's Broadway run in 'Equus', and the actor has raved about an Our Lady J gig during an appearance on US TV, calling it "awesome". "Daniel is fascinated by the drag culture and is always asking questions. He went to a few shows and was made to feel very welcome," the Sun quoted a close friend of Our Lady J as saying.
"He's a lovely guy and he and Our Lady J got on like a house on fire. "They have eaten out together and been to parties. They have become quite close," the source stated. It seems that the drag queen is equally taken in by Radcliffe, and boasted about their latest meeting on a Twitter site. "Just had delish meal w/Dan Radcliffe," Our Lady J wrote.
