The global pandemic Swine Flu which has been spreading worldwide for the last few months, has decided not to even spare the stars. Yep, its not confirmed that the one of the Stars of Harry Potter movies is sick with Swine Flu. Rupert Grint is 20 years old and plays as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter.
Looks like Rupert Grint caught the flu while he was filming for the latest movie in the Harry Potter series. Looks like swine flu is also spreading in the Wizard World. Hope the news is covered by Daily Prophet. I guess this is the first case of a wizard who caught swine flu. OK, enough with all the Wizard stuff, lets get back to reality.
For now, it seems Rupert Grint is recovering well from swine flu. He is also expected to attend the Tuesday’s London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
His rep said, “It has just been confirmed that Rupert Grint has taken a few days out of filming due to a mild bout of swine flu, 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.” In a statement he released to the press.
He also added that Repert Grint’s doctors have determined that their patient is not contagious. Looks like they don’t want to scare the hell off other stars who attend the premiers. Well, I don’t think the no matter what the doctor says, other stars who attend the premiers will be a lot more concerned about getting infected. Some may even be open about it, but most will be scared to death inside.
It also looks like the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows crew were able to go ahead without Rupert Grint and have not lost any of the production days. Looks like they must have covered the part of the movie where Ron Weasley has an argument with Harry Potter under the influence of dark magic and leaves his friends to go back home.
