Saturday we reported that Harry Potter star Rupert Grint had contracted the H1N1 Influenza virus (Swine Flu). Earlier today, while speaking with reportersopens in new window at a press event in London, England, Rupert commented on his bout with the virus.

"It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu. I thought 'Am I going to die?' But it was just like any other flu really. I had a sore throat and I went to bed for a few days."

Thankfully Rupert had only experienced mild symptoms of the virus and is set to attend the official premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince tomorrow in London, England.
