Shell Cottage Filming Day One: Location Photos for Filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Update: Filming took place today on Freshwater Beach for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for scenes involving Shell Cottage. Many reports to TLC say actor Toby Jones was there, perhaps just for rehearsal purposes only, for scenes involving Dobby. Warwick Davis was also there as Griphook, with other cast members such as Dan Radcliffe (Harry) Emma Watson (Hermione) Rupert Grint (Ron) Evanna Lynch (Luna) and their doubles were filming both on the dunes and rehearsing down on the beach. Readers Maddie and Gemma report that Rupert was there dressed in a beard and wig for Ron Weasley's transformation, and possibly the photos are of Emma Watson dressed as Bellatrix for the transformation to Gringotts out of Shell Cottage.

 Thanks much TLC reader Jo,  Shell Cottage Day One filming set pics are now in our galleries are as follows:
 Warwick Davis as Griphook, Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix and Harry
 Bellatrix and
Emma Watson or her double on set
Evanna Lynch as Luna Lovegood

Additional photos are of what are likely to be the doubles for the celebs on the beach, although this remains quite unclear as to what is going on. Maddie and Gemma's photos can be found, here. Reports say hordes of paparazzi were there, making it very difficult for fans to get clear photos. Filming does continue all week long, and we will continue to update with more photos when we can.

Update 2: Thanks to SS for the heads up on video from the BBC, now here in our galleries. (note those are likely the doubles for the cast on the beach)

UPDATE 10, 012 ;) While some readers expressed confusion, we can see yes indeed Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix) and Emma Watson (Hermione) were indeed on set today as witnessed by the slew of paparazzi photos which are now surfacing online, here (page 4) from Oclumencia.

Many thanks to Jo!

I’m assuming not all of the actors are there yet…this doesn’t mean they won’t be. I don’t see John Hurt either and he’s obviously going to be there.

This is so exciting I can’t stand it! I go offline for a few days and come back to this: OMG. And I love Belatrix/Hermione carrying the bag—wonderful. (A thought: Maybe this is where they’ll break the films, as they’re leaving for Gringotts?)

I love the Helena pictures. But I’m still wondering where Dean Thomas is.

Those new pics are awesome!! I so wish I had a better camera, you can even see the sword of Griffindor!! Eeeeeee!!

I won’t be going tomorrow, as I’m a tad sunburnt, it’s so sore!! But hoping to go down on Thursday.

The paparazzi certainly do love to photograph Emma.

It’s really cool to see these pictures every so often. The other films were mainly filmed in studios but with DH they are always on the move outside of Hogwarts, so we can expect more pics!
