Los Angeles: Celebrated author JK Rowling has debunked some of the popular "Harry Potter" fan theories, including Dumbledore being a time-traveling version of Ron.

The 50-year-old author, who often takes to Twitter to interact with fans and to throw more light on the Potterworld, fact-checked a few fan theories of the hugely popular franchise, reported Entertainment Weekly.

When a fan asked the author if Dumbledore, the headmaster of the wizarding school Hogwarts, is actually an older, time- traveling version of Ron, Rowling replied, "False theory."

She addressed another theory that Draco Malfoy is a werewolf and dismissed a persistent theory that Snape is actually a vampire.

"I've never seen that one before. Draco definitely isn't a werewolf (and Snape's not a vampire)."

Rowling also answered a very important question about the scent of Severus Snape."Bitterness and old shoes."

Earlier, Rowling had revealed that everyone has been pronouncing the main antagonist Voldemort's name incorrectly, as the 't' in the name is actually a silent, 'r'.
