‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ film set at Freshwater West beach, Pembrokeshire, Wales, Britain – 10 May 2009
After filming scenes in London the Harry Potter cast and crew have moved onto Wales to film on a Pembrokeshire beach. In recent weeks a ‘shell cottage’ has been built in Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire. As it took shape Potter fans were able to recognise the distinctive cottage as the “lonely and beautiful” place where Harry and his friends seek refuge from the evil Lord Voldemort in the final instalment of JK Rowling’s popular novels. Today the film’s main stars, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, were all on hand to film scenes on the beach. They were joined by the likes of Helena Bonham-Carter, as witch Bellatrix Lestrange. Due to the scale of ‘Deathly Hallows’ the story will be split across two separate movies, with both parts being filmed together. The first instalment is due to be released in November 2010, with the second in July 2011.
