Actor Johnny Depp has made an unannounced visit to a London primary school after receiving a letter from one of its students. The actor turned up at the school in Greenwich, South London, dressed as his Pirates of the Caribbean alter-ego Captain Jack Sparrow. He said nine-year-old Beatrice had written to Captain Jack, asking him to lead a mutiny against her teachers.
Beatrice Delap (9) wrote to Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp’s character in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, asking for help:
We are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we would love if you could come and help.
- Beatrice Delap
Depp, who is in south-east London filming Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides, gave the school 10 minutes notice on Wednesday that he was on his way.
The school quickly called an assembly and Depp walked in to gasps from the students, according to People magazine.
Depp, holding the letter, called Delap up to the front and hugged her but he dashed any thoughts of a rebellion.
Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today because there are police outside monitoring me.
- Johnny Depp
