Johnny Depp—er, we mean, Pirate Captain Jack Sparrow—stole the hearts of many kids receiving treatment in Australia when he showed up dressed as his famous alter ego to surprise patients at Lady Cilentro Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.
The 52-year-old actor and his co-star, Stephen Graham, who plays Scrum, took a break from filming their latest “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie to spend hours chatting with patients in the oncology and neurology wards, taking photos and giving out gold coins.
We should point out the characters did not arrive by pirate ship – they flew in from the Gold Coast by helicopter and landed on the hospital’s rooftop.
This isn’t Depp’s first surprise visit as Jack Sparrow. He’s shown kindness in many ways, including visiting London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital, where his daughter, Lily-Rose, was treated for kidney failure. He also showed up in character at a London school a year later at the request of a student there.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is expected to be released in 2017.
