Hollywood actor Johnny Depp dresses up as Captain Jack Sparrow in a surprise visit to sick children at a hospital in Brisbane.
Film star Johnny Depp donned his pirate costume in Australia on Tuesday (July 7) to pay a visit to a children’s hospital.
Depp dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, complete with the character’s trademark dreadlocks and eyeliner, he was escorted through the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane by 13-year-old Ula Pryce-Davies.
Depp was in character for the visit and posed for selfies with beaming children.
He also recorded a special message for the patients.
«I have no idea what this thing is that I have in me hand. But i’ve got it and I’ll nick it, obviously. But, I just wanted to say thank you to Juiced TV for having me on, I’ve had a wonderful time, I’ve had a fantastic time meeting all the kids and everyone and the parents and the people and I stole a lot of things and I want to salute you, all of you for your bravery and your courage because that is all that matters,» he said.
Depp has spent time in Australia this year to film the fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series in Queensland, but his time in the country has not always gone smoothly.
In May a government minister threatened to have his two dogs, Pistol and Boo, put down after the actor flew the terriers into the country on a private jet without informing customs officials and meeting Australia’s strict quarantine requirements.
Depp managed to fly the dogs safely back to the U.S. on his jet soon after the threat.
Juiced TV, a television show made by children at the hospital, said the visit was initiated by Depp and his co-star in the Pirates of the Caribbean film, Stephen Graham.
