SURREY LIFE DISCUSS
Surrey Life Magazine gives an insiders description of what the SWATH locations were like throughout filming. They also note the dog walkers who stumbled upon the Frensham set by accident. Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as well as others were at this location. Read how the general public was able to see Hollywood in action:
"At Frensham Little Pond this autumn, dog walkers were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of Snow White and the Huntsman (pictured), starring Twilight’s Kristen Stewart. Farnham-based photographer Matthew Burch was there."
"In the film, the village on the shores of Frensham Little Pond is home to young women imprisoned for the benefit of the Evil Queen, played by Charlize Theron, and it is said that the queen orders the destruction of the village, which the photo above depicts."
"Several days before the fire scene, a group of armoured horsemen, led by Kristen Stewart’s Snow White stunt double astride a white horse (the Twilight star was also spotted on set during the shooting), were filmed from a low flying helicopter whilst charging up and down King’s Ridge – the recent heath fire offering a landscape ideal for the storyline as these scenes take place after the burning of the village."
"All this action was done in public view, so while some regular users of the ponds hold grievances for the disturbance, the reward is frankly the fun of the viewing opportunities."
