*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!

I was just thinking, ‘what on earth is Bellatrix doing at Shell Cottage?’ but of course, it will be Polyjuiced Hermione. At least, I hope so!

I saw HBC in “Sweeney Todd”. She was SERIOUSLY disturbed in that film too. She’s also a SERIOUSLY good actress.

I wonder how Helena Bonham Carter’ll act as the disguised Hermione. I mean, will she retain her voice or use Hermione’s voice? Anyway, I’m looking forward to it. :)
