Vern Troyer for CGI Dobby in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?


May 13, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

We have another look today at location filming photos from Shell Cottage courtesy of TLC reader Victoria. As noted below, she was present for the filming of the Shell Cottage scenes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yesterday in Wales. Also present was her sister Nadean Jarvis who owns Panache Imagery. Special for the readers of Leaky, Nadeen sent along some wonderful new photos which you can see starting here in our galleries. They also report that apparently actor Vern Troyer was on set apparently to do work for Dobby along with actor Toby Jones. Mr Troyer can be seen here wearing special pants that contain white dots that will be used as the CGI special effects for Dobby later in the film.

Also noteworthy is this of Ron (Rupert Grint) comforting what seems to be an injured Hermione on the beach, as well as this of Dan Radcliffe as Harry Potter. Context is important on the latter as this was snapped at the end of the scene, where Harry has just buried Dobby, and Harry then bows in head in grief and silence. On a lighter note are some very lovely photos of actress Emma Watson, captured in rare private moments during the ten hour event yesterday, including this of Emma taking photos of Nadean photographing her, then all enjoying a laugh at the moment. You can also see new wonderful clear photos of Dom Gleeson (Bill Weasley), and here with Dan and Evanna, as well as a black and white photo of Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Evanna Lynch. Nadean has asked these not be copied but are here as a treat for Leaky readers and Harry Potter fans to enjoy.

Filming continues today on location at Freshwater Beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales for Deathly Hallows.
Thanks ever so much to Victoria and Nadean

Hmm interesting!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Many thanks once again for sharing these beautiful pictures with us. I cannot believe that we are still waiting for the Half-Blood Prince as I view these images.Avatar Imagedingy0413 says: These pics are beautiful! Thanks for sharing!! My fav so far is the B&W one of Hermione carrying Dobby, with Ron in the back. Also, I've checking here constantly on our work computers, just dying for some Day 3 shots. =) Avatar ImageWicked_Lady says: I love Emma's pictures of her taking pictures of her photographers! XDAvatar ImageCaracticus says: Now, in PS/SS, Vern Troyer played Griphook: I read on another Shell Cottage set report that it was Warwick Davis (who played the OTHER goblin at Gringots in PS/SS) playing Griphook... I don't see why Mr. Troyer wouldn't reprise his role as Griphook. I'm just confused, but is it CONFIRMED that Mr. DAVIS is playing Griphook, NOT Mr. Troyer?Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: thanks to those involved in obtaining these pictures, they're beautiful. I can't believe ron apparates with hermione, just like in the book! Avatar ImageMuggleQueen says: Thanks ever so much Victoria and Nadean! It was really cool seeing these pictures, I love all the out-of-character photos as it shows how much fun they all seem to have on set. And OMG that pic of Harry - I think I'm gonna end up crying even more in the film at that moment than I did while reading it!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: OMG Ron comforting Hermione!! *diesAvatar ImageDolemite says: A lot of great picts.Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: cool! =)))))))Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Haha I agree with ChristinePotter. Great photos, and very interesting! Thanks, Sue! ^_^Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Haha I agree with ChristinePotter. Great photos, and very interesting! Thanks, Sue! ^_^Avatar ImageLilleby says: Caracticus: I'll try to explain it for you(: Verne Troyer DID play the role of Griphook in PS/SS, but only played him. Warwick Davis did the speaking part of Griphook, since Verne Troyer is not British. So it is much easier to let Warwick Davis play Griphook in DH, since he should do the voice anyway(:Avatar Imagecghambright says: These pics are AWESOME!!Avatar ImageLeakyMugLuva749 says: Why is he dobby? it doesnt makes sense...Avatar ImagePrisoner Of Azkaban says: Brilliant pics! Best ones i have seen yet :D I can't see if Bill, has scars on his face or not? Can anybody else? You would think they would do it with make up? Thanks again for the pics though. Amazing Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: awesome pictures :DAvatar Imagevictoria_price says: Hes Dobby because they needed a real person to play the dying scene. The suit is covered in tiny dots that are ready with a computer, with that they can then get the real human movement of the death scene and then they fill in the gaps with speciel FX. Its really hard to type it lol, in the film you wont see it as vern at all.Avatar Imagetwiwizardjedi says: In the black and white pic of Hermione carrying Dobby, with Ron's profile just behind her, we can see a small slash of a wound on her neck. Bellatrix's knife is IN. This scene is going to be so intense!Avatar ImageMatea says: these are awesome! thank you so much! I don't know what to think about Bill. I always imagined him way Dan and Rupes look so tired.bless them! but this is so exciting..guys,they're filming our last HP book :(Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: Wow -- these pictures are so fabulous! They are giving loving attention to these scenes, you can tell. The photo of Harry in sorrow -- the last one -- is heartbreaking! WOW!Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: These are great pictures, thank you so much! I like the one of Emma taking a picture of Nadean taking a picture, haha. :-)Avatar ImageVerity Weasley says: I'm trying not to look at too many photos, but wait for the movie instead. The personal ones of the cast are great to look at though. Avatar Imagepottercastfan says: COOL!!!!! but a bit too much?Avatar Imagepottercastfan says: they should have shown Dobby!Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: Vern Troyer?! I don't know how I feel about him being in the films. After seeing his behavior on other shows I don't really want him associated with Potter. Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: I big thank you to Victoria and Nadean! Great job! Oh, the pic with Ron and Hermione breaks my heart, it's so beautiful!Avatar Imagejojojojo says: OMIGOODNESS ME!! If that's Verne Troyer, I took photos of him on Monday,, I double checked the photos I took and I found this one on the beach: Avatar Imagejojojojo says: Arrghhh!! Why didn't I realise it was him!!!Avatar Imagejojojojo says: One of the crew told me that they are scheduled to finish Thursday, but are likely to overun onto Friday. But the weather is forecast to be awful tomorrow, perhaps they are planning to film at the one they built indoors, so today would be the last day that they are filming there so to speak.Avatar Imagehimatej says: Wow. the pics were amazingly shot. Great photographyAvatar Imagemollywobble says: Thanks Nadeen for sharing your images. And thanks Victoria for all the info. Jenbabe705, Troyer was in the first film. So... too late, he was already associated with it. Avatar ImageDanielleD says: can't wait! can't wait! can't wait! can't wait! can't wait! Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Excellent!Avatar ImageTassana Burrfoot says: Oh, wow! I can't wait to see this movie!Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Awesome! Love the pics.

I just assumed it was Vern Troyer croaking out those few words.Avatar ImageLilleby says: ^Glad I could help(:Avatar Imagesupergirlinfrance says: amazing , can not wait !:!!Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: I'm so glad to see that picture of Ron comforting Hermione...I was worried they were playing down Hermione's ordeal and having her strolling around as if nothing had happened. I'm not sure what I think about Bill either yet, but he definitely looks like a Weasley! I do wonder about the scars, I don't remember whether they did Lupin's with makeup or effects. Thanks for the amazing pics guys, you're wonderful! ^_^Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: These are really cool. Thanks Victoria and Nadean! :) Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I am so loving these photos especially the one with Ron comforting Hermione :)Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: oh keep the pictures coming i'm loving themAvatar ImageTifereth says: Woah, Emma photoing fans photoing Emma photoing fans. *head explodes* Loving these pics!Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: i'm not really feeling the beards. I mean i know they wouldn't have time to shave because their main focus is destroying Voldemort's horcruxes and saving the frikking world with their wands and sword, but c'mon! their seventeen! They should make them look as young as possible for the ending! So they look really old, in comparison! BAHH!Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: Vern as Dobby... i hope David Yates doesn't take it into his own hands to what Dobby should look like and completely change him! that would be awful! I really love Dobby and he's gonna one of the things i'm the most looking forward to seeing... again. They should defiantly give him more screen time, or more lines. Like "Dobby has not seen Harry Potter for too long!", i know it's not true to the book but i think they'd need an explanation for him being absent. Coz Daniel's aged ALOT since chamber of secrets, so Dobby would be like "HOLY SHIT HARRY POTTER!" then wack his head against the wall for swearing. LOL! MOVE OVER STEVEN KLOVES, Harry Richards is the new Screenwriter. I joke! you can keep your job, your amaazing!! :)Avatar Imagemcleod27 says: Some great photos. Thanks Nadean. I like the ones where Emma Watson is taking the photos of Nadean taking photos. Great stuff! Avatar ImageSmitch says: Awesome pics! Avatar Imagerettopnaf says: Great pictures ....and glad to see Vern Troyer in something other then Austin Powers he actually grew up about 6 miles from where I a small town called Centreville Michigan Avatar ImageFloridianFlounder95 says: Thanks Nadean and Victoria for these great pictures! They = Awesome!Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: Great photos.Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: I LOVE DOBBY =DAvatar ImageiLoveDolores says: can't wait for the movie =DAvatar Imageavrenim says: i don't understand the verne troyer warwick davis thing.. verne should be playing griphook, no? if he wasn't reprising his role then why is he still involved in the film? oh well, great photos! especially the one of ron comforting hermione.. aww!Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: i like the pics of emma and her camera
