RECAP: Last week during the UK premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince we heard from actor Jason Isaacs and others that filming scenes for Malfoy Manor in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows would be taking place this week. Today, as noted below, UK BBC Radio One DJ Edith Bowman broadcast live from Leavesden Studios in London from the set of Deathly Hallows. We now have early video of her in Dumbledore's office available for download here in our galleries.

During her visit, she spoke with actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), and noted he was wearing prosthetic for the scene ("being tortured' he joked) in Malfoy Manor. While Emma Watson (Hermione) was unfortunately off due to illness, other very fun interviews took place with actor Tom Felton (Draco) and Rupert Grint (Ron). In perhaps the most comical of the day, actor Jason Isaac, resplendent in shades and his "Paris Hilton" Lucius Malfoy wig PHOTO HERE, drove the host around in his golf cart for the interview while on set. We also learned Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix) was also there filming those dramatic scenes, with DJ Edith Bowman noting they were hoping to stick around after their interview to do more with the cast; should more photos and videos surface online we will of course update.

You can also watch two video of interviews conducted earlier at the radio station
Dan Radcliffe, and Emma Watson.

YAY!! It’s so exciting that they’re filming Malfoy Manor. It seems really important that Emma be there though considering her character gets tortured.

This is random but I just realized we won’t have another LONG period with no HP news now because they’re already filming DH and we’re going to be getting non-stop info about it and then the movie will be out in NOVEMBER 2010. So exciting!! :D

It was so cool to listen to this live! I wish they would do it more often, now that the end is so near. Like, once a month have a Harry Potter Day. That would be awesome. :)

Now I’m really curious to know how the prostetic make-up they put on Dan looks like, something that covers part of his mouth… could it be a lot of blood?

Hopefully it’s showing the effects of Hermione’s ‘Stinging Jinx’ (DH, p371), on Harry (p.362). If it is, it’s a good sign that they’re showing their usual attention to detail (yes, I know, I mean to the scenes they don’t cut!!).
