Location Filming Currently Underway in London for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

TLC has gotten multiple reports that location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently underway tonight in London, England. Following on what TLC first reported several weeks ago, Staff and many readers have alerted us that crews bearing name tags with "HP7" are setting up location night shoots in the Piccadilly Circus and Shaftesbury Avenue portion of London. New reports say this new filming underway tonight and tomorrow is most likely for the Cafe attack scene with the Trio. These are due to run from 9pm till 530am (very late). If you are in the area, please send in your reports and photos to staff@the-leaky-cauldron.org.

Update: Reader Milo owled to say that he heard "roughly 400 extras are going to be used over a 3 day period, each shoot lasting from 11pm-5am but due to congestion they are only allowed to film at 15 minute intervals. When I got down there earlier this evening I saw the production designer Stuart Craig surveying the area. There is a large unit base at the bottom of Piccadily Circus with and pretty much every crew member is involved in this shoot, and throughout the evening lots of mini buses carrying crew members from Leavesden studios were being dropped off." Thanks Milo!

Related: In case you missed the report from below; be sure to check out the recent Deathly Hallow location photos taken over the weekend in Scotland, involving Harry (Dan Radcliffe) and Hermione (Emma Watson) and the camping scenes.

Thanks so much to to all who owled!

First??

I hope the fact that it says HP& on the name tags isn’t indicative of how they’re going to market the film, I hate this new idea of tagging numbers onto the end of the name!

Also…camping scenes including Harry and Hermione. No Ron? Maybe they’re filming the scenes where he left? Cool! I can’t wait to see those, that was one of my favourite parts of the book.

I wish I could see this filming in person! Let us hope additional media surfaces online in the next few days!

400 extras? For what would they need these? Hmm. I am wondering whether or not they are going to transform this isolated incident into something more epic.
