But a trip to Los Angeles, California, with his spouse, turned out to be a godsend when he ran into actor Nicolas Cage, who encouraged him to pursue a career in acting.

John Christopher Depp


Gave a $2 million donation to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital. He presented the gift as a token of appreciation for the care his daughter Lily-Rose received at the hospital in March 2007 following an E. Coli infection that resulted in renal failure.

A voicemail was left for a seventeen-year-old British girl who had spent the last five months unconscious. Because he is their daughter’s favorite actor, the girl’s parents asked him to record a voice message, which they will play to her every day in the hopes that she will wake up. After reading the letter, Depp expressed his gratitude and promised to help however he could.

He once wrote on a billboard with his character from 21 Jump Street (1987) because he didn’t like the way he looked or the message it conveyed. When the security guard realized it was Johnny’s face, he actually let him finish what he was doing.

Named beaches on his own Bahamas island after public figures such as Marlon Brando and Hunter S. Thompson, as well as his children and his former girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. A body of water known as “Heath’s Place” is also there, honoring Heath Ledger.

Gave the money he received from The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) to Heath Ledger’s late daughter, who died during production. After Depp shared that concept, Jude Law and Colin Farrell took similar actions.

Professional Career

He became well-known in 1987 when he took Jeff Yagher’s place as Tommy Hanson, the undercover police officer, in the hit television series 21 Jump Street. After playing a number of teen-oriented roles, Depp teamed up with director Tim Burton on Edward Scissorhands (1990) to play the title role, marking the beginning of a very successful working relationship. After the movie’s success, Depp established himself as a somber, quirky, and dark actor, constantly taking on parts that took both audiences and critics by surprise. Prior to rejoining Burton in 1994, he continued to receive critical acclaim and grow in popularity by starring in numerous features. His role was Ed Wood. He starred opposite Al Pacino as an undercover FBI agent in the fact-based movie Donnie Brasco (1997); Terry Gilliam directed Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998); and finally, he made an appearance in the sci-fi/horror movie The Astronaut’s Wife (1999). In 1999, he reunited with Burton for Sleepy Hollow, where he played Ichabod Crane with great skill.

Over his career, Depp has portrayed a variety of characters, including Insp. Fred Abberline in the fact-based film From Hell (2001). At the conclusion of Robert Rodriguez’s “mariachi” trilogy, Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003), he outshined movie legends like Antonio Banderas. He played the endearing, cunning, and roguish Capt. Jack Sparrow in the fantastic family blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), a role that only actors like Johnny Depp could pull off.

 His career has been enriched by the huge success of the film, which has led to multiple opportunities and an Oscar nomination. In the factually-based Finding Neverland (2004), he co-starred with Kate Winslet as the gentle novelist James Barrie; in the Stephen King film Secret Window (2004), he played the lead role; and in the British film The Libertine (2004), he played Rochester. In the film adaptations of Roald Dahl’s novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Alice in Wonderland (2010), and Dark Shadows (2012), Depp and Burton worked together once more.
