*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!

Will she not also play Andromeda though?

If they even have that part in the movie, they could just have Harry and Hagrid crash at the Burrow

How funny is it that the Wales Online reported that Helena filled up her car… I find that amusing. News! Hehe…
However I will be very excited to see Bellatrix in this movie… She does crazy SO well!

i really don’t think she’ll be playing andromeda, if that character is lucky enough to make the cut, because she is described as having more open eyes, lighter hair, kinder face etc than bellatrix. they wouldn’t want to confuse non-readers either i think.

They have got to put all the parts where Bellatrix is there. Espwcially, the encounter with Dobby, Hermione transforming into Bellatrixfor Gringotts and the final battle. I am quite sure no one can play the part of Bellatrix giving us the real sinister image of her on screen. thank goodness helena is coming back! No one could have filmed that part the way she does! Cheers!!!!
