There is a curious report today regarding location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. According to the Liverpool Echo, actor Bill Nighy has apparently been on the set for filming at the Birkenhead tunnel area of Liverpool, England. The paper says “The actor has been busying himself around Liverpool’s famous sites
and eateries during breaks from filming the latest Harry Potter movie. He
plays Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows ’ the final film in the series ’ which has been
shooting after dark in the Birkenhead tunnel. Insider spotted
Bill at Gusto at the Albert Dock, and at the Italian Club on Bold
Street where he was chatting to owner Rosaria about his upcoming big
screen wizardry.”

These scenes at the tunnel are widely believed to be for the Seven Potters sequence in Deathly Hallows. We are working to verify this report and will update with more when we can.
