Actor Johnny Depp’s character as Captain Jack Sparrow, fictional character and the main protagonist of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film series, became world famous. While Disney was apparently unsure just what Depp was doing with this wild character, Jack Sparrow became a hit with fans and even got Depp an Academy Award nomination.
While the actor had never made a sequel prior to Pirates of the Caribbean and his run with Disney is also over, but Depp says he’ll perform it at kid’s birthday parties if that’s all that’s left to him.
Speaking at a press conference at the San Sebastian Film Festival (via Comicbook.com), prior to receiving the prestigious Donostia Award, Depp said, “I suppose this is the positive side of having, in a strange way, given life to those characters like Captain Jack or whatever character that I was lucky enough to locate and bring to life the beauty of Captain Jack Sparrow.
“I’ll go to somebody’s house, man, I’ll perform at your kid’s birthday party at this point.”
While Depp may be wishing to return to return to play Jack Sparrow, or at the very least may have wished to do so at one point, he says now that he doesn’t need “a company” in order to be Jack Sparrow.
“I don’t need a company to do that. I can just do that myself and nobody can take that away. That’s the greatest pleasure of Jack Sparrow.
“I can travel with Captain Jack in a box – literally Captain Jack in a box – and when the opportunity is right and I’m able to go and visit people and places where the smiles and the laughs and the things that are important, the most important things in the world are on the line,” he said.
The actor has done similar stint in the past as he has previously done things like visit sick kids in the hospital dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow and otherwise perform for fans.
