Johnny Depp’s awesome level has just reached superhuman levels. When student Beatrice Delap wrote a letter to Pirates of the Carribean hero Jack Sparrow looking for help staging a mutiny against her teachers, Depp took a hands-on approach. Yesterday the actor showed up at the girl’s elementary school, dressed in full pirate regalia.
The nine-year-old wrote: “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.”
Depp, who was filming scenes for the upcoming Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides in nearby East London, appeared at the school with only ten minutes notice. According to the Daily Mail, he addressed the students in trademark Sparrow rasp. The sashaying swashbuckler then called Delap out of the crowd for a hug, and told her that he intended to frame her letter before adding, “Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today, ‘cos there are police outside that have been monitoring me.”
Our biggest question for the lucky “budding pirate” is: where did you get Captain Sparrow’s address? And can you send it our way?
