Johnny Depp used a chaotic technique to create the
character of Capt. Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean.
As you probably know, Johnny based Capt. Jack’s personality
partly on The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. According to Johnny,
“Pirates were the Rock’n’Roll stars of that era, you know, of the 18th century. The myth, or the legend, would arrive months before they would ever make port… which is very similar to rock’n’roll stars… and it was about freedom.”
Take 5 minutes to watch the video. Go ahead.
The world can spin without your help for 5 minutes, can’t it?
Disney was highly aware of how much
Capt. Jack’s personality “did not belong.”
But Johnny Depp knew how well it would fit.
