Vern Troyer for CGI Dobby in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

We have another look today at location filming photos from Shell Cottage courtesy of TLC reader Victoria. As noted below, she was present for the filming of the Shell Cottage scenes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yesterday in Wales. Also present was her sister Nadean Jarvis who owns Panache Imagery. Special for the readers of Leaky, Nadeen sent along some wonderful new photos which you can see starting here in our galleries. They also report that apparently actor Vern Troyer  was on set apparently to do work for Dobby along with actor Toby Jones. Mr Troyer can be seen here wearing special pants that contain white dots that will be used as the CGI special effects for Dobby later in the film. 

Also noteworthy is this of Ron (Rupert Grint) comforting what seems to be an injured Hermione on the beach, as well as this of Dan Radcliffe as Harry Potter. Context is important on the latter as this was snapped at the end of the scene, where Harry has just buried Dobby, and Harry then bows in head in grief and silence. On a lighter note are some very lovely photos of actress Emma Watson, captured in rare private moments during the ten hour event yesterday, including this of Emma taking photos of Nadean photographing her, then all enjoying a laugh at the moment.  You can also see new wonderful clear photos of Dom Gleeson (Bill Weasley), and here with Dan and Evanna,  as well as a black and white photo of Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Evanna Lynch. Nadean has asked these not be copied but are here as a treat for Leaky readers and Harry Potter fans to enjoy.

Filming continues today on location at Freshwater Beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales for Deathly Hallows.
Thanks ever so much to Victoria and Nadean

Many thanks once again for sharing these beautiful pictures with us. I cannot believe that we are still waiting for the Half-Blood Prince as I view these images.

These pics are beautiful! Thanks for sharing!! My fav so far is the B&W one of Hermione carrying Dobby, with Ron in the back. Also, I’ve checking here constantly on our work computers, just dying for some Day 3 shots. =)

Now, in PS/SS, Vern Troyer played Griphook: I read on another Shell Cottage set report that it was Warwick Davis (who played the OTHER goblin at Gringots in PS/SS) playing Griphook… I don’t see why Mr. Troyer wouldn’t reprise his role as Griphook. I’m just confused, but is it CONFIRMED that Mr. DAVIS is playing Griphook, NOT Mr. Troyer?

Thanks ever so much Victoria and Nadean! It was really cool seeing these pictures, I love all the out-of-character photos as it shows how much fun they all seem to have on set.

And OMG that pic of Harry – I think I’m gonna end up crying even more in the film at that moment than I did while reading it!

Guess That Book

Harry had seen Professor McGonagall angry on several occasions, but either he had forgotten just how thin her mouth could go, or he had never seen her this angry before.
