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!

Wow! They’re filming Grimauld Place Scenes! Some of my favorite moments take place there. I can’t really tell they were in costume or not. They could have just been in regular clothes because they were doing press.

The picture of Dumbledore makes me a little sad. I just like to pretend he is actually alive.

that video was very cool! I like his hair so far as I’ve seen. It’s been far too short last few movies.

What a great cause and a wonderful experience for those kids. I got a tear in my eye when I saw Dumbledore’s portrait. Not quite ready to lose him.

I love that they changed Dan’s hair for this film, a bit more rough you know, it fits better to the story.

Haha I noticed that Dan’s hair greatly resembled Harry’s on the front cover of DH when those pics of him in that forest were released, and now i see that Sue noticed it too, which confirms that I’m not imagining things! For some reason it makes me glad because I’m getting the feeling that they’re trying to be as faithful as possible (cutting the movie in two, bringing in Dung and Bill, and Toby Jones as Dobby, etc…)

I saw it last night. It was a good little snippet – the Trio were very welcoming to the little kids and I have to admit to squealing when the portrait came on
