Initial pictures from the movie set of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" in London have finally arrived on the net, capturing two principal cast members Daniel Radcliffe and Michael Gambon, courtesy of Just Jared.
The twosome were caught sharing a laugh during a shooting break for scenes at the home of Horace Slughorn, played by Jim Broadbent, in Budleigh Babberton. Sequence filmed reportedly saw Harry and Dumbledore convince the former Potions Master to return teaching at Hogwarts after his retirement in 1980s.
Shots taken funnily spot Gambon, who reprises his role as the Hogwarts' headmaster, wearing a beard protector while also surprisingly reveal the actor to be a smoker. Radcliffe, in the meantime, was seen without the glasses he is enticed to put on in his role as the bespectacled teen wizard.
The sixth installment of the "Harry Potter" film series, "Half-Blood Prince" brings back David Yates on the director's chair with a scheduled theatrical release on November 21, 2008. Author of the original book series J.K. Rowling recently unveiled shocking statement saying Dumbledore is gay, adding she has already passed a note to Yates upon finding a reference in the film's script to a girl who once was of interest to Dumbledore.
