The new initiative (http://harrypotterathome.com) features magical craft videos, fun articles, quizzes, and puzzles drawing inspiration from her "Harry Potter" novels - and they are all available to young fans free of charge.

The 54-year-old JK Rowling shared a video on her timeline.

Rickman played Professor Severus Snape, Harry's longtime nemesis, in all seven of Rowling's Harry Potter movies.

Rowling responded to the fan's tweet by sharing her own experience of grieving Rickman, who passed away from pancreatic cancer on January 14, 2016.

Rowling penned: "In Harry Potter & the Cursed Child, Snape makes his first appearance with his back to the audience". Alongside his position of Hans Gruber in Die Onerous, the actor will at all times be remembered for enjoying the Hogwarts professor, with Harry Potter, who spent numerous sequence at odds with Snape, finally realizing that he was "the bravest man he ever knew". The actor-turned-author, who was following social distancing, is now taking rest at home after her foot was bound in a plaster.

We're interested in drivers, not quitters", said a tweet on the account of the topical pain reliever cream. The drivers have decided to make the most out of their talents especially during this quarantine period.

Alan played the seemingly nefarious potions professor across all eight Harry Potter films. He sees his own mother, Lily, learning that Snape was in love with her; Dumbledore ordering Snape to kill him; and, finally, Snape secretly helping Harry throughout his time at Hogwarts, making him realize that Snape was protecting him all along. The entertainment industry and Harry Potter fans mourned his death as much or more than the death of his character.

"I'm fully recovered & technique helped a lot", Rowling wrote.

"We needed to have a conversation early on". In a tweet posted on Monday, April 6, the author revealed that she has recovered from the condition with the help of a breathing exercise recommended by a doctor on YouTube.

She also offered some kind words of support to one follower who revealed they were terrified as they were now undergoing treatment for cancer.

Rowling then signed off: "Stay safe, everyone x".
