A very detailed set report from Deathly Hallows has been released by a couple who got the chance to visit Leavesden Studios recently.

They talk about all the new sets for the seventh and eighth films, including the Lovegood home, Malfoy Manor, numerous camping set-ups, Grimmauld Place, Shell Cottage and much more.

The fans saw the Room of Requirement scene being filmed, where Draco Malfoy and Blaise Zabini fight for dear life against the Fiendfyre:

The first thing we saw was the Room of Requirement, similar to what we saw in Half Blood Prince. Stacks upon stacks of furniture, books, potions and whatnot (including several chess pieces from Philosopher’s Stone) were everywhere. Here we got to see a bit of filming that involved the stunt doubles for Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Louis Cordice (Blaise Zabini). They were perched atop one of the stacks of furniture and rigged into a harness.

When they cut, we slipped into the set and skirted around the edge. Around the corner from the stunt doubles and through the gap between two stacks of stuff was Tom Felton and Louis Cordice. We got to watch the playback monitors for the scene they had just shot. One of the monitors shows the actors exchanging dialog, while the other was an overhead shot of them walking through the stacks.


Of the props they saw on set, one indicates that Katie Bell may be attacked by Fenrir Greyback in the final battle:


- A model of Katie Bell from Half-Blood Prince (when she gets cursed by the necklace)
- Another Katie model that was repurposed for a Greyback scene in Deathly Hallows

The couple also got to see the actors readying for Bill and Fleur's wedding sequences, which are being filmed this week:

While there, our heads were whipping left and right as we saw Rupert, James and Oliver (one of which had a bandage over his head and ear), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), Emma, Tom, Bonnie and Evanna (both sporting hair nets so as not to mess up their ornate hair… presumably for the wedding scene about to be filmed), Stan (Krum… who sat at the table next to us and ate lunch by himself), Warwick Davis and his son, Domhnall Gleeson (had prosthetic scars on the left side of his face), several wedding guests and actor’s doubles. One of those was, we firmly believe, was Xenophilius’ double. He was wearing mustard colored corduroys, a pale shirt with a yellow waist coat over the top that was covered in flowers and shoulder length blondish-white hair.
