"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."

The actor, 20, had to call in sick from the set of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," his movie that is currently filming in London. The next installment of the boy wizard franchise, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," hits theatres July 17.
