Rupert Grint, the actor who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, battled the swine flu this summer, but is now fully recovered. He panicked when doctors first gave him the diagnosis, but it wasn’t a big deal in the end. “It was just like any flu I’ve had before,” Grint said. “It was just a sore throat and I was in bed for a while.”
That latest movie, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” opens this Friday, July 17.
