Do you think anyone has ever had quite as much fun playing a movie character as Johnny Depp has playing the swaggering, swashbuckling, entirely morally bankrupt pirate Captain Jack Sparrow? I don’t.
If there ever there was a marriage of actor and character forged in the benevolent irons of heaven, it is surely Johnny Depp and his most famous creation, who has been the face of one of the most lucrative and popular movie franchises of our time.
Perhaps it is Cap’n Sparrow’s complete lack of a moral compass (and possession of one that only points North), possibly it is his braggadocio and bombastic sense of humour, his delicious mockery of the pompous Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly (in character, of course). Whatever it is, Depp struck gold with his portrayal of the world’s best/worst pirate, and audiences haven’t been able to get enough for quite some time now. It probably also helps that the legendary actor gets paid a truly eye-watering amount to walk the gang plank and rig the sails, film after fanciful film.
You may well have heard the story of Depp and his nautical comrades trip to a London school, in character and dressed to the nines, after he received a letter from a nine-year-old girl asking the would-be pirate and crew to help the school children stage a mutiny against their teachers. Depp and company, filming nearby, duly obliged.
His fan-pleasing days as the strutting Sparrow are not yet at an end, thankfully, and neither are his surprise public appearances as the character either it would seem, after the actor appeared at Disneyland California recently.
