Biography of Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp was born in Owensboro on June 9, 1963, in Kentucky. Johnny Depp grew up in the family alone, the parents raised Daniel’s boy too and two girls – Christie and Debbie were an engineer builder, father of the future actor, and mother – a waitress in his teens, the boy’s parents Decided to take part, but soon their mother got married for the second time. This man made friends with Johnny, and in the future, he also called his stepfather “Mastermind”.
As a child, Johnny Depp was not happy child, because his mother spent the day working in a cheap cafe to feed four children, the actor’s father liked to drink in his spare time, then scolded him and his Beat the wife when she defended her sons and daughters, little childhood young Johnny had spent with her grandfather When he died, long time Deep could not recover from terrible loss. This incident had a very negative effect on the mind of his mind. After the death of his grandfather, due to a series of unwanted incidents, Johnny Depp’s family shifted to Florida, a 12-year-old boy started smoking and drinking alcohol.
Already at the age of 15, he first tried drugs, because that boy was expelled from school.
Son of an engineer and a housekeeper, Johnny Depp is passionate about music by attending a gospel show. He joined The Flame, which became The Kids, and was the first part of the Iggy Pop tour. Two years later, the musicians go to Los Angeles, but the training does not achieve the expected success. It was during this period that Depp met Nicolas Cage, who made him meet his agent. He thus obtains a small role in Wes Craven’s Les Griffes de la Nuit (1984).
Johnny Depp then enrolls at Loft Studio in Los Angeles to take comedy classes. Once out of school, he enlisted with the Marines of Platoon, then known the celebrity with the launch, in 1987, the series 21 jump street. His career was launched, he chose to break with the image conveyed by television, that of a young actor for midwives, playing under the direction of John Waters in the satirical Cry-baby (1990). From this film, the actor will not stop being on the sidelines, regularly embodying offbeat and unusual characters. Also in 1990, while interpreting Edward with silver hands, he begins with the director Tim Burton a fruitful collaboration that will continue with Ed Wood (1994), Sleepy Hollow, the legend of the horseman (1999), Charlie and the chocolate factory (2004), Funeral Annals (2005), an animated film for which he lends his voice, and the musical Sweeney Todd (2008).
Taking some distance from the Hollywood industry, Johnny Depp collaborates with filmmakers as talented as Emir Kusturica (Arizona dream, 1992), Lasse Hallström (Gilbert Grape, 1993, Le Chocolat, 2001) and Jim Jarmusch (Deadman, 1995). With this experience, he moved to production in 1997 with The Brave, which will not win the expected success, despite the presence in the credits of his friend Marlon Brando. Back in front of the camera, he moves away from the romantic and poetic characters to play the cops infiltrated in the mafia in Donnie Brasco (1997), the crazy journalists in Las Vegas paranoia (1998), the researchers of rare books in the grip of the fantastic in The Ninth Gate (1999) or drug traffickers in Blow (2001).
Despite the failure of the intrusion thriller (1999) and the abandonment of the chaotic filming of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Terry Gilliam’s unfinished film that will give birth to the documentary Lost in the Mancha (2003), the charismatic Johnny Depp keeps the confidence of the studios. Predisposed to playing costume films such as From Hell (2002), Neverland (2004) and Rochester, the last of the libertines (2006), he returns to success thanks to the ultra-profitable quadrilogy Pirates of the Caribbean (2003-2011), making the inescapable pirate Jack Sparrow one of the most prominent characters in mainstream cinema. In spite of this colossal success, the actor does not forget his friends and thus plays the crazy hatters for Tim Burton in Alice in Wonderland as well as one of the incarnations of Tony in the Imaginarium of the Doctor Parnassus of Terry Gilliam.
A chameleon actor, he likes to change his registry and appears in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies (in which he plays the famous gangster John Dillinger). In 2010, he is manipulated by Angelina Jolie in the thriller The Tourist then lends his voice, the following year, chameleon Rango in the film of Gore Verbinski, before finding again in 2011 and thirteen years after Las Vegas paranoid, the world of writer Hunter S. Thompson for the crazy Rhum Express. With the vampire Barnabas of Dark Shadows (2012), Johnny Depp adds another crazy and offbeat character to his filmography. In this feature film, while his character discovers the world of the living, the actor finds his friend Tim Burton for their eighth collaboration.
In 2013, the year of his 50th birthday, the actor once again finds Gore Verbinski for the needs of the atypical western Lone Ranger, a big production whose budget is close to $ 250 million but which ends with a big financial failure. His next films, Transcendence, Charlie Mortdecai and Strictly Criminal are also struggling to find their audience. Depp then finds two characters who worked wonders at the box office: The Mad Hatter (Alice on the other side of the mirror, 2016) and Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean 5, 2017).

If Johnny Depp left school at 16, it was to live his passion for music and especially for the guitar. He joined the group Bad Boys who became Kids thereafter.

2- He is scared of clowns
Was Johnny Depp too scared looking at that? Did he come back? The story does not say it, but the actor assumes his fear of clowns.

In addition to having a tattoo for each of his children, the actor, unfortunately, gave up the temptation of the romantic tattoo, “Winona Forever”, a vestige of his relationship with the actress Winona Ryder. After their breakup, Johnny Depp turned it into “Wino Forever”. Not sure it’s an illusion.
