UPDATE: (Slight Spoiler) Here it is, the sleeping portrait of Professor Dumbledore in Deathly Hallows.
Also: Rupert Grint with Dan Radcliffe (note his hair is slightly longer, like Harry in the cover art).
         Emma Watson greeting the visiting children

UPDATE 2: VIDEO is here in our galleries, thanks Roonwit!

Previously, we told you that children in the UK would be making a visit to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and footage of that visit would air during the BBC Red Nose Day Comic Relief charity program. That footage has now aired, and according to readers, contained a shot  Professor Dumbledore's portrait. We do not know how much additional footage of the DH set was broadcast, and will continue to update with more when we can. Reader Neil owled to say that the children also did meet with Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

Thanks Hannah and Amy!

That’s weird. We only see the portrait in the final chapter.

We see in in HBP. Dumbledore is sleeping in it so its only DH that we see him interacting with Harry and Snape etc

One of the early photos showed a picture of Harry and McGonagall in Dumbledore’s office, so the portrait must be included in that scene. (in the book, Harry DID see the portrait, but he said it was sleeping… I think…).

The portrait may be in the HBP film, but they will be filming DH now, where they will need the portrait (from the last chapter and the Prince’s Tale, perhaps also the Goblin’s revenge if they show the attempted stealing of the sword by Ginny, Neville and Luna.

In the group shot at the end Davina is holding a sign saying Harry Potter (DH symbol) Shoot Day 10, and they seem to be in a place with bare shelves, a table and a fireplace in the background. I guess it could be a room in Grimmauld Place. Earlier they are standing in front of a wall with rather dull striped wallpaper, which might also be Grimmauld Place.

I would surmise that the portrait is just a place marker for the Actor/ess to act too since the picture will be moving in someway or another when we see it in the theater.

They also showed an owl who should play Pigwidgeon, the dog who plays Fang and I think it was Dumbledores office at the end when Davina sat in a chair.

This footage sounds very interesting. Hopefully, the great Leaky them will be able to post it online soon. I really hope they can.
