Johnny Depp Dresses Up as Captain Jack Sparrow for the First Time in Two Years. The famed Pirates of the Caribbean actor has always been passionate about helping others, with one of his most notable feats being that Depp frequently would visit children’s hospitals while dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow while filming in various parts of the world. Recently, Depp made a virtual appearance with several patients currently being treated at Queensland Children’s Hospital in South Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
During the virtual appearance with Juiced TV, Johnny Depp shared, “It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been there and I miss it and I wanted to say hello.” Depp opened up about his love and willingness to visit with kids who find themselves in prolonged hospital stays and shared that it truly hit home in 2007 when his daughter Lily Rose was admitted and treated at Great Osmond Street hospital in London for E-coli poisoning. “When my daughter was ill in Great Osmond Street, it was the darkest period of my life, I’d always done these visits but after that experience, the visits became more and more important,” he said according to the Graham Norton Show. “The kids [at the hospital] are so courageous but to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to the parents means everything in the world to me.”
Regarding his virtual visit Queensland Children’s Hospital, Johnny Depp said to Daily Mail, “It’s a wonderful facility. I’m with all of you and I send you all my love, all my irreverence, and ignorance because it’s fun to be irreverent and ignorant. Thank you for sticking with me through all these very strange years.” He added, “These three beautiful young people I’ve spoken with this evening and having heard from people who sent videos in, like little Ula, is one of the finest and most beautiful experience that I’ve ever experienced and that is because of all of your commitment to this project and to taking care of one another and to helping out when times are curious and confusing.”
