OSCAR-winning director Danny Boyle has reportedly fallen for his leading lady after being pictured on holiday with actress Rosario Dawson.

Radcliffe-born Mr Boyle, aged 56, was apparently photographed in Barbados with 33-year-old Dawson, who the film-maker cast as an enigmatic hypnotherapist in his new movie Trance.

The pair were celebrating the end of filming with a Caribbean winter break to see in the New Year, a national newspaper has reported.
