Rupert Grint has recovered from the swine flu after spending a few days in bed – and overcoming some fears.

“It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu,” the actor, 20, told reporters at a press conference for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in London. “I thought, ‘Am I going to die?” added Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the film. “But it was just like any other flu, really.”

The actor suffered from a sore throat after catching the virus while filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but no production days were lost, his rep said.
