HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHNNY!
Johnny Depp has been in the headlines since the conclusion of his defamation trial, but he has been captivating us for decades with so many amazing characters. And today, June 9th is his 59th birthday.
Johnny Depp began his career soon after he moved to California and famed actor, Nicholas Cage convinced young Johnny to pursue acting. His first role was in the first A Nightmare On Elm Street in 1984.
But his first real shot into the limelight was when he joined the cast of 21 Jumpstreet in 1987. From there he would collaborate with Tim Burton and help create the heartbreaking sweetness of Edward Scissorhands in 1990.
From 1990 on, Depp would star in numerous films with many being great and some not so great (sometimes just financially). However, it wasn’t until 2003 that Johnny Depp became his most iconic and incredible (and profitable) role as Captain Jack Sparrow. This role cemented him as not only a great actor but easily one of the great money-making powerhouse names of Hollywood. Hopefully, with the trial being concluded, we may once again see Johnny grace the screen again as Captain Jack Sparrow.
