Potter star Rupert Grint has been confirmed as having taken a few days off filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows due to having contracted the H1N1 influenza virus, also known as the swine flu.

In a statement Grint's publicist said that it had been confirmed that the 20-year-old Potter star had contracted a mild case of the virus but that he has since recovered and is looking forward to attending the upcoming premieres for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with his fellow cast members before returning to the set of Deathly Hallows once again for filming.
