Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy looked loved-up at the Directors Guild Awards

Claire Danes is to wed her British boyfriend Hugh Dancy, her rep has confirmed.

The couple, who met on set of 2007 film Evening, have been dating for just over a year.

Earlier this month, Hugh, 33, admitted he'd like to star in another movie with Claire, 29.

'Never say never,' he tells Us Weekly. 'There's no list of people I wouldn't work with, up to and including Claire.

'Obviously, I respect her as an actress immensely.'

Hugh's latest flick Confessions Of A Shopaholic is out on 20 February.
