Rupert Grint Contracts Swine Flu

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, has contracted swine flu, his publicist confirmed.

The 20-year-old British actor is still expected to join co-stars on the red carpet for the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on Tuesday.

“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 publicist said in a statement. “He has now recovered 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.”

Get well soon, Rupert!

jennifer is apparently abmoral and a sick minded human being. i believe in karma and what goes around comes around. good luck w/ that. however, rupert i hope you get better! that is very, very serious and get a lot of rest and take more than a few days off of filming to respect your castmates health please! get well soon<3

OMG!! I’m so happy he’s okay! That’s really scary!

Awww…poor baby. It’s so weird that he got it. I thought it was something people only got in more tropical climates like Mexico, but thank goodness he’s better now. It’s a huge relief. We need our Rupert Grint!

@alexandra: No…….. don’t believe in that karma bull crap. You must be one of that religious nuts.
