Swine flu is no match for a boy wizard.

Rupert Grint, best known as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movie franchise, caught the evil virus late last week, but ought to be well enough to attend Tuesday's London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

"It has just been confirmed that Rupert Grint has taken a few days out of filming due to a mild bout of swine flu," said his rep. "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 other Harry Potter new, Emma Watson is featured in the latest issue of UK Elle.
