The Harry Potter stars sported matching helmets and goggles – think old-school biker style! – as they cheered from the side of the NME/Radio 1 stage. Earlier in the day, the costars met up with Frank Carter, the band's frontman, for a chat and some photos in an outdoor VIP area.

Rupert Grint Calls Swine Flu 'Quite Scary'

Originally posted 07/08/2009 03:40PM

Rupert Grint has recovered from the swine flu after spending a few days in bed – and overcoming some fears.

"It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu," the actor, 20, told reporters at a press conference for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in London. "I thought, 'Am I going to die?" added Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the film. "But it was just like any other flu, really."

The actor suffered from a sore throat after catching the virus while filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but no production days were lost, his rep said.

It seems that there's no magic spell against the swine flu.

Rupert Grint, 20, who plays Harry Potter's pal Ron Weasley, caught the notorious bug while filming the latest movie in the wizard series but is now 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," his rep says in a statement. "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."
