Thanks to CBBC Newsround for letting us know that that one of their press pack reporters has a new article online regarding her visit to the location filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Young ten year old Press Packer Molly reports that while on the set for filming of scenes involving Shell Cottage she, "caught a glimpse of some of the actors as they were going to make up, I saw Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson and Ivana Lynch both waved at me! I talked to the Location Manager and she told me her job was to find the best place to film different parts of the film. She said she had looked all over the country to find a beach to film the scenes and I was really proud they chose Pembrokshire."

Molly also reports that the Cottage itself "looked like it was really old and had 1600 shells on the roof that had all been put on by hand. There were people called set dressers working on the set and they were raking the sand and using blowers to make it look like no one had walked around the house." Photos from her visit are available here. Please note there is video online here, unfortunately it is not available to viewers here in the United States.

Thanks to BBC and everyone who emailed!

That’s to bad about the video, but the report was great!

I hope we’ll be able to see some of the other location filming for the movie.

She’s so lucky! The location scouts for the Harry Potter films are BRILLIANT!! THey always choose such beautiful locations that fit the book perfectly. And don’t even get me started on the brilliance of the set designers. Stuart Craig is a genius!!

Thanks Molly for the report. The Shell Cottage set is incredibly good, shame it’s only up for such a short time. The bit above the front door looks like most of the Deathly Hallows symbol (cloak and wand but no stone); I wonder if that was intenetional or a happy accident!

IwishIwas: I read that ‘Bellatrix’ was there because when they leave Shell Cottage for Gringotts Hermione has polyjuiced into Bellatrix. So we’d have Helena as Bellatrix playing Hermione trying to be Bellatrix!
