Johnny Depp has played many roles, on screen and off, over the course of his life—musician, teen idol, Hollywood bad boy, night club owner, eccentric actor, devoted family man. But the role he may be most remembered for is the most unlikely—action adventure movie star . . . with a twist. As the foppish Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp is the force behind one of the most successful film franchises in history.
Thoughtful and unpretentious, Depp has created one memorable film character after another. Although he never set out to be a star—and remains uncomfortable with the label—he has become one of Hollywood’s most respected and fascinating talents.
