TLC has gotten multiple reports that location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently underway tonight in London, England. Following on what TLC first reported several weeks ago, Staff and many readers have alerted us that crews bearing name tags with "HP7" are setting up location night shoots in the Piccadilly Circus and Shaftesbury Avenue portion of London. New reports say this new filming underway tonight and tomorrow is most likely for the Cafe attack scene with the Trio. These are due to run from 9pm till 530am (very late). If you are in the area, please send in your reports and photos to

Update: Reader Milo owled to say that he heard "roughly 400 extras are going to be used over a 3 day period, each shoot lasting from 11pm-5am but due to congestion they are only allowed to film at 15 minute intervals. When I got down there earlier this evening I saw the production designer Stuart Craig surveying the area. There is a large unit base at the bottom of Piccadily Circus with and pretty much every crew member is involved in this shoot, and throughout the evening lots of mini buses carrying crew members from Leavesden studios were being dropped off." Thanks Milo!

Related: In case you missed the report from below; be sure to check out the recent Deathly Hallow location photos taken over the weekend in Scotland, involving Harry (Dan Radcliffe) and Hermione (Emma Watson) and the camping scenes.

Thanks so much to to all who owled!

Maybe this is really for the Death Eaters’ attack scene on the Trio in a cafe on “Tottenham Court Road”

So that’s a peice of HP news from either end of the country! Too bad the Highlands is far too north of me to chance getting a glimse of Dan or Emma :( and i dont think my parents would want to take a train down to London at 11 o’clock at nite just because there is the slightest chance i mite get to see some of the HP crew members! :D

…i wonder if they will turn the “cafe” scene into an attack from actually death eaters and maybe incorporate into something to do with the trio’s break into the Ministry???…

It would just be nice to work on the crew to be honest.

Like I said, I don’t know how the actors function amid that chaos.
