As announced previously, location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be taking place this week in Pembrokeshire, Wales. As such, many of the cast and crew have arrived in the area. Many readers have emailed to say that members such as Dan Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron), Emma Watson (Hermione), Evanna Lynch (Luna), Domhnall Gleeson (Bill Weasley) and even Warwick Davis (doing duty apparently as Griphook) are now in the area along with other crew, and visited the beach earlier today.  Day One filming is due to start in the very early hours tomorrow at Freshwater Beach for scenes involving Shell Cottage, the location of those dramatic and emotional moments with Dobby. Thanks so much to TLC reader Jo, we have some photos of the cottage today as last minute preparation continues, even on the garden out back; you can see more here in our galleries and see additional ones on her flickr account. Update: Jo notes too that on close inspection of the cottage "From the looks of the conservatory and garden, it looks like they may do some internal filming. You can also see a chair in one of the front windows. I couldn’t get over the detail, the little window next the chimney is just such a nice effect, even lobster pots in the garden!" Also, courtesy of a  Facebook group for Freshwater Beach has photos from Sian, here showing crews setting up for filming.

Please note: Given the high profile nature of this filming, many photographers and press are already in the area, and local officials have stated that the traffic routes will be affected by the filming, but pedestrian traffic can still get through to the beach. If you are there for the filming, which will be going on all week long, Monday May 11 through May 15th, please email your reports and photos and videos to Stay tuned, this should be a very exciting week!

Thanks so much to Jo, S, and to all who have emailed!

Warwick davis was the voice in PS/SS maybe they just decided to make him the goblin now as it was easier.

Fleur is maybe only going to be in the interior shots…i hope!

I’m sure the rest of the cast will get there soon enough, they haven’t even started filming. Maybe some members don’t have to film until later in the week. Just calm down and wait.

i wish Clemencey will come back in this movie to portray as Fleur delacour.

…and i still wondering how the film makers show the great sadness of Harry in Dobby’s death since Dobby is only seen in the movie series just once, 2nd time in DH movie.

I accepted, They didn’t included Dobby in “Goblet of Fire” and “Order of the Pheonix” films because when the movies was made and released, the DH book hasn’t come out yet, But to not include again in Half-Blood Prince???

I can’t accept that. :(

The pix of Shell Cottage are GREAT. I didn’t think I could get any more excited about this film than I already was. First the pix from the London shooting and now this. YES!

*Including Dobby in “Goblet of Fire” will show the importance of House-elves.
*Including Dobby in “Order of the Phoenix” will show much the greater support of Dobby given to Harry than we saw in “Chamber of Secrets”
*Including Dobby in “Half-Blood Prince” will show the greater respect of Dobby to Harry Potter when he wrestle another House-elf, Kreacher when Kreacher insulted Harry.

All of those scenes are very important to show to the audience, the great/big IMPACT to Harry when Dobby died in the “Shell Cottage”.

The cottage isn’t what I expected either, but now that I’ve seen it I can accept it. Feel like I’m dying waiting for these movies to come out, lol.

It is just wonderful that they are filming these heartbreaking scenes! I cannot wait to receive more media regarding filming in this area.
