Twilight star Kristen Stewart films on location in Wales for Snow White and the Huntsman

Wales has become a bit of a go-to beach filming location in the UK. Kristen Stewart’s been at Marloes Sands near Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire for several days filming Snow White and the Huntsman. A several-hundred-strong crew is involved, along with dozens of costumed riders on horseback.

Watching 80 knights in their colourful costumes galloping down the sands has been an amazing sight and really captures your imagination. The local facilities have coped well and things have run smoothly.

The producers needed filming permission from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. Phil Lees, a Senior Ranger with the organisation, spoke to the BBC: “Watching 80 knights in their colourful costumes galloping down the sands has been an amazing sight and really captures your imagination. The local facilities have coped well and things have run smoothly. It's a deceptively large beach and all the action is taking place on the south end.”

Pembrokeshire has been used before for major Hollywood productions, with Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood and the final Harry Potter films both using its beaches in recent years. Snow White and the Huntsman is based at Pinewood Studios.
