I love this.
Johnny Depp surprised school children after a student sent him a letter asking for his help to mutiny against the teachers.
Not only is Johnny Depp a fantastic actor (IMHO the best there’s ever been), but he’s also a stand up guy, I had tears of happiness as I watched the video, the kids were so thrilled.
I hate celebrity culture I have never brought a magazine or newspaper, but this is just out of this world the look on the childrens faces must have been priceless.
Who wouldn’t love a visit from Captain Jack Sparrow he’s awesome.
I laughed when the BBC news reporter who’s daughter attended the school said came home and his daughter told him “we met a famous pirate in assembly today” and jokingly reported being the good parents we are we ignored her :)
The kids where so happy and many of them who spoke to reporters after Johnny Depp had left were breathless with excitement, “bless”!
Johnny Depp visited the school after he received a letter from nine-year-old Beatrice Delap.
“screams of joy” where heard from out side as Depp, in full, leathery, dread locked, swaggering costume, entered the building, in response to Beatrice’s letter that was sent to the set of the new pirates of the Caribbean movie that is being film at studio’s just down the road from the primary school.
Beatrice’s letter said, Dear “Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian primary school, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we’re having a bit of trouble mutinying against the teachers and we’d love if you could come and help.”
Johnny Depp AKA Captain Jack Sparrow told the children in assembly that “the pirates were going to take over the school and only eat candy and our teeth would turn black and fall out, but he said we shouldn’t mutiny against the teachers because there were police outside and we might get into trouble.” :)
He called Beatrice up to the front and gave her a hug before he left.
