Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Easter Egg - JK's Reference to Daniel Radcliffe's Favorite Charity

Throughout the book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, you'll notice that there is a character named Demelza Robins. Demelza is obviously a different name, but Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who plays Harry Potter in the films, has one specific charity of choice. Demelza House Children's Hospice outside of London. JK Rowling obviously put this in here to either raise money for the hospice, or just as a tribute to the good things they've done for kids.

There is a Demelza, Harry picked her for the Quittich team. I noticed this too and I think it was cool of Rowlings to do that, if it was on purpose.

From IMDb.com: In reference to Daniel Radcliffe: "He supports Demelza House Children's Hospice, which is a charity that cares for terminally-ill children in the Kent, East Sussex and South London areas of Britain. Dan always asks his fans to donate to the charity every Christmas and on his birthday instead of sending him gifts. In the book, 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince', the author 'JK Rowling' named the character Demelza Robins after the charity."

That's really cool. Well done. (And for once I'm NOT being sarcastic.)

I don't recall a Demelza Robins, so the name couldn't have occurred that often. Maybe JK just heard the name and liked it, so decided to use it.

Demelza is the girl who tried to slip Harry the Love potion that Ron accidently eats.
