Deathly Hallows Filming Update: Location Shoots Possibly in Midlands and London


Apr 09, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

There is word today from several sources regarding location shoots underway for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Thanks to the now private blog of Half-Baked Brownie Guider, we know location shoots are reportedly taking place in the Midlands area of the UK. The author reports while at the site of an unnamed cooling tower, her daughter was able to meet actor Dan Radcliffe. She writes:

During the day, Daniel Radcliffe was kind enough to come over and
talk to her for a while, shook hands with her and my husband, and
encouraged her to shout her name up the cooling tower where they were
filming, to hear the echo. She was too star struck to do that, so he
shouted her name for her!

I hope he knows just
how appreciated gestures like that are, I am sure he is asked to be
nice to somebody’s kid every day on location, and much much more. But
he was very kind to her and really made her day/week/year/life.She did also see the actors who play Ron and Hermione but they weren’t near her so she didn’t meet them.

Also TLC has received word from credible sources regarding additional night shoots that will take place on location in the coming days for the Death Eater attack at the cafe, possibly around the Piccadilly Circus area, and things will heat up in Scotland over the next month or so. Again all very exciting but please keep this in the rumor category for now!

Thanks so much HBBG and Radcakesfan!

So hopeing the cafe scene IS nthe filmand that they ARE about to film it soon!!!!Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: Omg! They're keeping the Cafe Scene! This movie will be the movie that book purists are waiting for. The movie that bridges the style of the first two movies with the style of the more recent ones. I'm excited for the Half-Blood Prince, of course, but that seems more like an appetizer now that this movie is already in production.Avatar Imageavrenim says: that is so sweet, i wish i got to meet daniel radcliffe after i saw equus but apparently he didn't come outside after matinees.. oh well!Avatar ImageAvangelis says: that was nice. i want to see that blogAvatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: YES!!!

I was told that new the Harry Potter film was to be filmed there in July 2009. The site was the Ratcliffe on Soar power station and the most significant aspect of the place is the 8 massive cooling towers. So that is the location and you heard it from Charlie Alford and the Rothley scouts. Oh - Ratcliffe on Soar is just inside the Nottinghamshire border - north of Loughborough.Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Cool! :)Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: SWEET. Can't wait to see the film. Avatar Imagefranlock says: Wait a minute, have they filmed the Picadilly Circus scene yet? I'd love to pop by if it's still going on! Or does anyone know if they're in London and where they are filming?Avatar Imagecghambright says: All the actors are so NORMAL! Why can't the actors in America be like them. Dan's obviously the most outspoken of the trio...he's always been that way and Emma is the shy one and Rupert is the "man of few words."Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: really cool!Avatar ImageDanielleD says: this is making me want the movie RIGHT NOW!! This is my favorite part: "But he was very kind to her and really made her day/week/year/life." How happy the mother/reporter was that Dan came and talked to her daughter! Now I want HBP and Dan !!
