UPDATE: (Slight Spoiler) Here it is, the sleeping portrait of Professor Dumbledore in Deathly Hallows.
Also: Rupert Grint with Dan Radcliffe (note his hair is slightly longer, like Harry in the cover art).
         Emma Watson greeting the visiting children

UPDATE 2: VIDEO is here in our galleries, thanks Roonwit!

Previously, we told you that children in the UK would be making a visit to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and footage of that visit would air during the BBC Red Nose Day Comic Relief charity program. That footage has now aired, and according to readers, contained a shot  Professor Dumbledore's portrait. We do not know how much additional footage of the DH set was broadcast, and will continue to update with more when we can. Reader Neil owled to say that the children also did meet with Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

Thanks Hannah and Amy!

Hmm. Isn´t that a major spoiler with the portrait? Shoulnd´t they, maybe, let us see the sixth film, before they start teasing us with the seventh? Aynways, ComicRelief is great …

You ca downloaded the video on
It was really cool to see Dumbledore’s portrait. Those kids are really lucky! Well, they really deserved the visit for their great charity work.
Nice to see Harry will look in this movie exactly like the book says. I noticed even the clothes he’s wearing in the pics we’ve seen are much more Dudley-like than in previous films!

OMG!!!! Dans hair is perfect!!!!!!!!!! They finally got it right. The only other movie that did it right was prisoner of azkaban. Some people might say no big deal but his hair is one of his most important features. Needs to look right. His hair in movie 5 was a disaster. way too short. Nice to see it back to proper length

Oh no, Sue said the H-word. You know, I’m going to miss the endless conversations about Dan’s hair when the films are all done…okay maybe not. Congrats to those kids who got to visit the set. That’s a very cool thing they did.
