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

I had no idea that Warwick Davis did the voice for Griphook in PS/SS. I just assumed it was Vern Troyer croaking out those few words.

I’m so glad to see that picture of Ron comforting Hermione…I was worried they were playing down Hermione’s ordeal and having her strolling around as if nothing had happened.

I’m not sure what I think about Bill either yet, but he definitely looks like a Weasley! I do wonder about the scars, I don’t remember whether they did Lupin’s with makeup or effects.

Thanks for the amazing pics guys, you’re wonderful! _

i’m not really feeling the beards. I mean i know they wouldn’t have time to shave because their main focus is destroying Voldemort’s horcruxes and saving the frikking world with their wands and sword, but c’mon! their seventeen! They should make them look as young as possible for the ending! So they look really old, in comparison! BAHH!

Vern as Dobby… i hope David Yates doesn’t take it into his own hands to what Dobby should look like and completely change him! that would be awful! I really love Dobby and he’s gonna one of the things i’m the most looking forward to seeing… again. They should defiantly give him more screen time, or more lines. Like “Dobby has not seen Harry Potter for too long!”, i know it’s not true to the book but i think they’d need an explanation for him being absent. Coz Daniel’s aged ALOT since chamber of secrets, so Dobby would be like “HOLY SHIT HARRY POTTER!” then wack his head against the wall for swearing. LOL! MOVE OVER STEVEN KLOVES, Harry Richards is the new Screenwriter. I joke! you can keep your job, your amaazing!! :)

"You know what could be in there?" said Luna eagerly, as the wall started to spin yet again.[br]"Something blibbering, no doubt," said Hermione under her breath, and Neville gave a nervous little laugh.
