Lily Allen was won over by David Harbour’s Stranger Things profile photo on dating app
Lily Allen was won over by husband David Harbour thanks to his Stranger Things dating app profile picture.
Harbour used a promotional photo as the show’s police officer Jim Hopper when he joined the private dating app Raya, where he met Allen.
Speaking on ITV’s The Jonathan Ross Show, which will air on Saturday, the singer admitted that she pressed ‘accept’ as soon as she landed on the actor’s profile.
“I didn’t know who he was,” she said. “I thought he was just like a sexy policeman from a reality TV show. He was wearing a policeman’s uniform.”
She later learned it “was a still from Stranger Things”, the hit Netflix show which Allen said she had never watched.
The star added that she didn’t have any set idea of the kind of partner she was looking for when she joined the app, but “swiping [was] a bit of fun”.
She also admitted that she didn’t think her romance with Harbour was “going to go anywhere” when they first started dating as he was only meant to be in the area for a short time while filming Marvel’s Black Widow.
“And then it did go somewhere,” she added.
The pair dated in 2019 and eloped in Las Vegas the following year, with her young daughters in attendance.
Harbour was recently seen at the red carpet premiere for Allen’s new TV series Dreamland, and flung himself to the ground with joy ahead of her stint at West End play The Pillowman.
