Los Angeles - Adrianne Palicki is engaged.

The Friday Night Lights actress is set to marry her stuntman boyfriend Jackson Spidell after he popped the question to the blonde beauty.

The 31-year-old actress' representative confirmed the news to website Just Jared.

Adrianne met Jackson on the set of the couple's forthcoming film John Wick, which also stars Keanu Reeves, Willem Dafoe and Jason Isaacs.

The actress previously admitted she didn't have a certain type of man that she looked for but was keen to find someone who made her laugh.

She said: "I don't really worry about whether a guy's a certain type, as long as there's a connection."

"We're going to grow old, we're going to get fat, but laughter lasts."

Adrianne is best known for her role as Tyra Collette in American football drama series Friday Night Lights from 2006 to 2011 and she starred as Lady Jane in sci-fi movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation opposite Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum.

Last month, it was revealed Adrianne had signed up to play Mockingbird in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and she later took to Twitter to confirm the news.

Jackson has worked as a stuntman on several movies including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this year as well as The Expendables 2 and TRON: Legacy in 2012 and 2010 respectively.
