No Disney fan hasn’t fallen head over heels in love with Captain Jack Sparrow from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise, including Johnny Depp. In fact, the actor loves this character so much he’s actually willing to play him at children’s birthday parties!
During a recent press conference at the San Sebastian Film Festival, Depp answered questions about cancel culture and at one point was asked about Captain Jack Sparrow. Depp explained that the character “will never leave” him and affirmed that he was always ready to make people laugh before taking things a bit further, telling reporters that he’ll play Jack Sparrow any chance he gets, including kids’ birthday parties.
“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. “I’ll go to somebody’s house, man, I’ll perform at your kid’s birthday party at this point.”
He 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.”
For those who are not aware, there is currently another Pirates of the Caribbean film in production. However, Depp has been barred from being a part of the project.
