Well shiver me timbers – is that Johnny Depp?
That's probably what students at the Meridian school in Greenwich, England, were asking themselves when the actor paid a surprise visit to the school dressed as his "Pirates of the Caribbean" character Captain Jack Sparrow.
Depp, 47, stopped by the school on Wednesday after receiving a letter from 9-year-old student Beatrice Delap, reports People. "We are a bunch of budding young pirates," wrote Dunlap, who had penned the letter after an earlier visit to the nearby "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" set. "Normally we're a right handful, but we're having trouble mutinying against the teachers. We'd love it if you could come and help."
Not long after, Depp, dressed as Captain Jack, sailed into the school with some of his cronies from the film and greeted the students at an impromptu assembly.
"He asked where I was in the audience. I put my hand up and then I had to go up and he gave me a hug," Dunlap told London Tonight TV news. "He said, 'Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today because there are police outside monitoring me.'"
what did portalpunk say??
Wow. Now THAT'S a class act.
Johnny, I've loved you since 21 Jump Street and this just solidifies that I've always had good taste, ;)
Remember him in Nightmare on Elm Street?
He can rock my boat my ship anytime
Johnny depp your the greatest at what you do. excellent job and keep up the good work. now a question. When will we see pirates IV ?also way to go going to the school this will be something for this child and his school to remember for rest of the lives and excellent store to tell their children.We love you Johnny Depp
jd is soooooo rad.
That was a really cool thing to do!
Pretty cool for a guy who dropped out of school!
I for one admire the man for making a life long good memory for a child that will someday tell his child that story.
Depp never ceases to amaze me.
Johnny,u hv superfans in nigeria & i top d list.life is all about d happy moments dt wil always take us down memory lane...way 2 go!
Johnny has so many good things going for him, hope no scandals to ruin him. ARRGH!
I LOVE ME SOME JOHNNY DEPP!!!!
I <3 JD even more now
He is SO COOL ! and has class. Find me another actor who would do this. They're all boozing it up or justing wasting time in L.A.
I've always loved Johnny Depp (hey, I used to watch 21 Jump Street, okay? LOL!) but this just puts him over the top. What a great guy to take a couple of minutes out of his day to do this.
k u ppl get way off track
True Stand up Man!!!!!
U cant read? She penned it and dropped it off on the set of the movie....hello.... Thats sweet of him
Just another reason for me to adore him, what a cool, giving, down to earth person. I along with a million others, love you for being you! Ye be a good man matey!
how cool is that? way to go mr depp....or, better yet, aye capt'n jack...we'll meet in tortuga!
I have heard he is one of if not the best when it comes to acknowledging his fans. Granted, sometimes people take it too far (i.e. stalking, etc), but if you're respectful to them they should in turn be respectful and kind to them, and Johnny Depp is as classy as it gets.
This is great! How exciting those kids must have been!
I agree, Johnny is the best. Getting off topic a bit. Please people, you're is the contraction for you are, not your.
What you like 10? Nah, Nah...you spelled YOU'RE wrong......NAH, NAH!!! F()Ckin' loser!
Now I understand why he moved to France. With such a high level of compassion and a desire to bring a smile to peoples faces, he would no longer fit into this countrys me-first, screw everybody else mentality. When does the next ship for France leave NY?
Outstanding Johnny! what a memory to give to those school kids!and for all of us to have something pleasant on the news for a change!!! Our homework... Make a special moment for someone (each day), follow capt'n jacks lead!!! wow imagine what that might do...
marry me Johnny Deep!
I wish he would come to my house!!! ;-P
johnny, your the best! you keep suprising me with film and character. keep changin life up, it hasent gone wrong for you yet. THANKS FOR THE SMILES BUDDY
LOVE you Johnny – way to go – so nice to hear a story like this. Now, if I send you a letter, asking you to help me celebrate our joint birthdays, will you come to my house ?
You'll have to share him with me Debbie!!! I adore this man and he is always so wonderful to his fans!!! Love Johnny D.!!
Growing up in Owensboro, KY, this guy was a drunken, dope smoking low life in constant trouble. He also needs to wash his hair more than once a month. Stop slobbering over this guy and get a life!
inresponse to @debbie.............people do things when they are young that are for lack of better words, stupid. BUT people also change and that seems to be what Depp has done. If i based who i am today on some of the choices i made when i was a teen...... but it is good to see that, if what you say is true, he could come to be the great individual he is today. Let's not make judgements against people that we really dont know anymore.
All around Nice guy with a good heart and no hidden agendas!
This is yet another reason why Hollywood should jettison the "faux celebrities" and promote only real and deserving ones like Johnny Depp. Go Johnny Go!!
If only more celebs would see this and realize, "Maybe I should be a good role model like he is." Then we would be getting somewhere.
@portalpunk, you are a moron !!! and your disgusting as well !!!! nice going johnny depp !!!!!!
Its nice to see , that you could take the time for the kids at school. way to go Johnny.
I agree Denise. He's one of my favorites and I'm no young chickadee. Johnny D. can drop by my office anytime.
Such a cool thing for him to do! Those children will keep that memory for a lifetime...
Where do you send letters to Johnny Depp?
THE NORTH POLE.
This school is near the old Naval Academy where they're filming; somebody probably dropped the letter off there.
fantastic question!! i want johnny depp to appear at my school and make frightening comments about mutiny and police.
WOULDNT IT BE MORE BETTER IF HE SHOWED UP IN AN ED WOOD COSTUME???!!!
