Harry Potter star wants ski lessons from snow bunny

Hollywood may have once been the hot spot for celebrity sightings, but with a recent outbreak of stars wanting ski and snowboard lessons, ski resorts could soon surpass the legendary film town as the place to mingle with A-list talent.

Last month, we reported that “High School Musical” actor Zac Efron was seeking the services of his pal Shaun White to polish his snowboarding tricks, and now a very popular English actor may be trying to join Efron on the slopes.

“Harry Potter” himself, Daniel Radcliffe, the 21-year-old star of the film series, hopes to enlist the help of one particular snow bunny to increase his ski skills. Daily Mail reports Radcliffe is currently planning a ski getaway to Switzerland’s Verbier with Olive Uniacke, stepdaughter of Harry Potter film producer David Heyman.

While the duo reportedly aren’t an official couple, Uniacke, an avid skier, could likely gain a romantic edge with the movie star by becoming his private ski instructor. As we’ve said before, there’s nothing like a girl who is beautiful, and can rip it on the slopes.

Reps for Radcliffe and Uniacke say the trip is likely to occur after the summer, which could be a perfect viewing opportunity to take in the Verbier stop of the Freeride World Tour.
