British actress Vicky McClure has found love with her on-screen boyfriend after shooting music movie Svengali last year (12).

The Filth and Wisdom star was asked to audition for the role after writer and actor Jonny Owen heard her being interviewed on the radio, and she quickly signed up to play his character's partner.

But life imitated art as soon as filming began and the pair has now settled down together in her native Nottingham, England.

She tells Britain's Marie Claire, "We met through Svengali and clicked straight away. I was, like, 'Oh my God!' It's a story I share with my single friends and say, 'It actually does happen sometimes!' I just knew.

"I just felt connected to him. He's a very good man. Kind, funny, generous. A real bloke - he likes football and a beer. He's not at all industry. We live a very normal life in Nottingham."
