Johnny Depp has revealed that he's willing to do whatever it takes to keep Captain Jack Sparrow alive, even if that means attending children's Birthday parties in character so that audiences never truly forget the swashbuckling adventurer. That's some serious dedication to the cause.
Depp first appeared as the charismatic pirate Jack Sparrow in 2003's Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl. The next few years would see an influx of eyeshadow-earing pirates at Halloween parties around the world. Depp went on to play the role for over a decade across four more films, with his final appearance being in 2017's Dead Men Tell No Tales.
The actor formerly known as Jack Sparrow was recently in attendance at the San Sebastián film festival in northern Spain to pick up a lifetime achievement award when he was asked about returning to his most famous character. Evidently, Depp is willing to play the character forever - even if Disney doesn't want to let him.
"I suppose this is the positive side of having, in a strange way, given life to those characters like Captain Jack or whatever character-that I was lucky enough to locate and bring to life the beauty of Captain Jack Sparrow," Depp said, according to Movie Web.
"I'll go to somebody's house-man, I'll perform at your kid's birthday party at this point." Depp continued. "I don't need a company to do that. I can just do that myself and nobody can take that away. That's the greatest pleasure of Jack Sparrow. I can travel with Captain Jack in a box-literally Captain Jack in a box and when the opportunity is right and I'm able to go and visit people and places where the smiles and the laughs and the things that are important the most important things in the world are on the line."
