'Harry Potter's Rupert Grint Recovering From Swine Flu

Harry Potter Rupert Grint is recovering from a 'mild bout' of swine flu, according to the actor's publicist.

"It has just been confirmed that Rupert Grint has taken a few days out of filming due to a mild bout of swine flu," his rep says in a statement.

"He has now recovering and is looking forward to joining his fellow cast members at the junket and premieres this week and will then return to filming directly afterwards."

Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, took a few days off filming but has now returned to the set of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' after a doctor confirmed the 20-year-old was no longer contagious and 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.

Grint will be well enough to attend the world premiere of 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' in London on Tuesday, which hits theaters on July 15.
