More set images and a detailed set report from Tuesday's London Deathly Hallows filming have been released. Of the production, it was stated that Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson were filming scenes during which Harry, Ron and Hermione, respectively, are about to apparate from the London street.


Five minutes later though, with the scene reset, and this time it’s the real deal, with Emma leading the trio through the street, looking (as one may expect for someone who has just heard that the Ministry has fallen) rather shaken. If this few seconds was anything to go by, this could be a good film for Emma to shine.

After a few more takes of this sequence the crew moves onto the very corner of Piccadilly Circus, where the road is temporarily blocked, and the trio take to the center of the road, as a London double-decker bus drives straight at them, stopping in the nick of time. One can only assume that this is the actual Apparition sequence, and that instead of the Tottenham Court Road setting of the book the movie makers have made this into a much bigger sequence, setting it in the instantly recognisable Piccadilly Circus.

While we expected to see the actual café attack sequence filmed here tonight a crew member informed me that they were unable to get a license from the City Of Westminster for even controlled explosions – so are we to assume the “London café” will actually be a set at Leavesden, and all we will see of real London will be the sequences of them wondering through the streets towards and away from the café?

So all in all, the second night of shooting seemed to pick up where the first left off – lots of walking up and down Shaftesbury avenue, just this time with the additional shots of the apparition sequence for fans to really sink their teeth into (either complaining that “That’s not what happens in the book!?!?” as I heard someone say, or “No…but it does sort of make more sense this way” as another said.) whatever your outlook, as has been mentioned above, the real star tonight was Emma Watson, who, despite only acting for all of 5seconds the whole night did honestly make you believe in those Five seconds that she was scared.

Photos of Dan, Rupert and Emma, hand-in-hand and ready to apparate can be seen here.
