Hundreds of Harry Potter fans mobbed an idyllic corner of West Wales yesterday as filming for the latest film, The Deathly Hallows, continues, Wales Online reported. (Possible spoilers ahead, if you haven't read the book!)

Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry, was photographed digging up part of Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire as he filmed the burial of Dobby—a house-elf who served the Malfoy family—with his fellow actors Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Grainger, and Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley.

During breaks in filming, Radcliffe, 19, was seen joking and tugging Grint's beard, while Watson, wearing dark sunglasses, signed autographs for fans who had descended on the beach.

Earlier in the week, Helena Bonham Carter was also seen reprising her role as Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is expected to break box-office records when it is released in two parts over the next two years.
