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 [email protected]
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!
