During a press event held today in London, England before the UK premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, actor Rupert Grint made some new comments about his recent bout with Swine Flu. As we reported the other day, Rupert had a mild bout of the deadly flu, but is well on the way to recovery and will attend the official premiere of the sixth Harry Potter film tomorrow in London, England. Speaking to reporters today, Rupert stated:

"It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu," he said at a press conference with other Potter actors including Emma Watson in London."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."

I’m glad it was not more. Taking care of himself and resting was smart.

It goes to show that the scare about the Swine Flu was scarier then the flu itself.

I’m glad he’s all right! :)

I’m almost certain that I had Swine Flu a few weeks ago, and it wasn’t any worse than the normal flu. A little rest and I was fine.

Many people die from flu every year, swine flu is just new in the news, so people are scared of it!
