*Update: The Western Telegraph has a small photo from the set today, and noted that Dan Radcliffe, Helena Bonham Carter and Evanna Lynch all signed autographs and shirts. TLC has a full report and pics coming very soon, stay tuned!

Yesterday we first told you various cast members had arrived for location filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Another cast member has now arrived, Helena Bonham Carter who will be filming her role as Bellatrix Lestrange. Readers will recall of course the dramatic encounter she has with Dobby at the end of Malfoy Manor before they apparate to Shell Cottage, and Hermione does later transform as Bellatrix for the trip to Gringotts. Wales Online reports that Helena made a stop to fill up her car before traveling onward to Pembrokeshire, where as we know, filming is now underway at Freshwater Beach in Wales. TLC has crews in the area, and we will be posting photos shortly, stay tuned!

It took me a while to work out just where in the sequence of the book “Bellatrix” would be at Shell Cottage – but yes of course, its after Dobby’s death isn’t it (isn’t it?) I’m going to have to reread DH very soon…!

That’s going to be amazing! At first I thought they were gonna alter the scene somehow and have a death-eater attack on Shell Cottage, but of course it was for the polyjuice. I think it’s time to re-read the book! :P

Sweet!! I think it should be fun to watch Helena as Bellatrix pretending to be Hermione pretending to be Bellatrix.

well they kind of need to have Fleur, I’m sure the actress playing her (Poesy or otherwise) will be getting there soon. The wedding is definitely in, and I doubt Bill will be a single bachelor…

Oh wow, I had forgotten about that scene too. Good grief, I need to go back and read that book again. Well, I need to read them all again actually. But yes, I absolutely adore Helena Bonham Carter, she’s so good at evil. ;-)
