Rupert Grint, Harry Potter's Friend Ron Weasley, had Swine Flu
Rupert Grint, who plays Harry Potter's faithful sidekick Ron Weasley in the movie frandchise, had a mild case of swine flu, and although he is alright now, he had to rest for a couple of days and not be around others.
He has now returned to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He will also be attending the premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in London on Tuesday July 7th.
"He has now recovered and is looking forward to joining his fellow cast members," his publicist said.
She said that Grint's doctor had confirmed the 20-year-old actor had recovered and was no longer contagious or at risk of infecting others.
"Other scenes were shot in his absence which did not require his involvement and thus filming was not disrupted," she added.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has a UK release date of July 15.
