The Prodigal Son Returns: Chris Rankin Filming as Percy Weasley for Deathly Hallows

In the wait before the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, our fandom debated...and debated...and debated on many topics, one being the possible return and redemption of Percy Weasley. When we learned the news that actor Chris Rankin was to return as Percy for the final Harry Potter movie, we were all delighted; today it is perhaps bittersweet news that we learn he is indeed filming, for we know those scenes do involve the return of the prodigal son if you will, following some very dramatic, and very emotional moments for the beloved Weasley family.  Yesterday, Chris said via his official Twitter: "morning all! back in the trailer... learnt how to use my wand yesterday afternoon. I now know how to attack and defend in 5 different ways!" Today the weather is a factor for all as he stated "back at hotel after an enjoyable afternoon's filming (if a little cold)."

TLC has gotten some reports over the past week that filming is ongoing this weekend on the outside lot at Leavesden Studios, where there are many green screens and various buildings that are thought to be used for the battle portion of the final movie. On a related note too, another photo from the set of Deathly Hallows has surfaced online on HP4U, this showing the inside of the Weasley home, and the kitchen.
