Johnny Depp aka Captain Jack Sparrow surprised a London primary school with a visit.
Depp, 47, took time off the Pirates set to makes his surprise visit at the primary school in Greenwich, south-east London. He arrived in his Captain Jack ensemble, after receiving a letter from one of the students.
A 9-year-old student named Beatrice had written Captain Jack asking him to lead a ‘mutiny’ against her teachers.
Once Depp arrived, a special school assembly was held where Depp and his fellow Pirates cast members walked in, in full costume.
Depp held the letter out and performed for the school children for 15 minutes. He told Beatrice that a mutiny might get them into trouble.
In her interview with London Tonight after Depp’s visit, Beatrice shared what she had written in the letter to Captain Jack.
She said: “Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we’d love if you could come and help.”
Footage of the surprise appearance was sent to CBBC’s Newsround programme, and can be seen here.
I wish hunky Johnny Depp had visited my school when I was a little girl! Better yet, he can still visit me now.
