Biography for Johnny Depp

Born John Christopher Depp in Owensboro, Kentucky, on June 9, 1963. Raised in Florida, he dropped out of school at age 15 in hopes of becoming a rock musician. He fronted a series of garage bands, including The Kids, which once opened for Iggy Pop. Depp got into acting after a visit to LA with his former wife, who introduced him to actor Nicolas Cage. He made his film debut in A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984). In 1987, he shot to fame when he replaced Jeff Yagher in the role of undercover cop Tommy Hanson in the popular TV series "21 Jump Street" (1987).

In 1990, after numerous roles in teen films, his first of a few great collaborations with director Tim Burton came about when he portrayed the title role in Edward Scissorhands (1990). Following the film's success, Depp carved a niche for himself as a serious, somewhat dark, idiosyncratic performer, consistently selecting roles that surprise critics and audiences alike. He continued to gain critical acclaim and increasing popularity by appearing in many features before re-joining with Burton in the lead role of Ed Wood (1994). In 1997, he played the undercover FBI agent in the factually based film Donnie Brasco (1997), opposite Al Pacino; in 1998 he appeared in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) and then in 1999 he appeared in the sci-fi horror The Astronaut's Wife (1999). The same year, he teamed up again with Burton in Sleepy Hollow (1999), brilliantly portraying Ichabod Crane.

Depp has played many characters in his career including another factually based character, Inspector Fred Abberline in From Hell (2001). He stole the show from screen greats such as Antonio Banderas in the finale to Robert Rodriguez's Mariachi trilogy Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) in the same year as starring in the marvelous family blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), playing a character that only the likes of Depp could pull off, Captain Jack Sparrow. Depp has been announced as joining up again with Tim Burton in a new screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005).

Apart from his on-screen life, Depp has dated several female celebrities off-screen including failed engagements to Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder and Kate Moss. He was married to Lori Anderson in 1983 but then divorced in 1985. Currently Depp is living with French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children: Lily-Rose Melody born in 1999 and Jack born in 2002.

Overview in the masterpiece of Wes Craven, the claws of the night and in Platoon of Oliver Stone, the young actor Johnny Depp becomes a real star with 21 Jump Street. Yet the actor does not have a good memory of the series. For him, the subject was doubtful and his status as a star of the small screen displeased him enormously. Rebelle, the actor takes everyone on the wrong foot and wants to be recognized for his acting talents. He therefore turns with the filmmaker shifted John Waters, in the Dance Cry Baby. He sank into the magnificent Edward with Tim Burton's silver hands. Besides, he will become "the alter ego" of the filmmaker since they will shoot together several times: Ed Wood and Sleepy Hollow are two excellent films. While waiting to be recalled by Burton, Johnny Depp works with Emir Kusturica in Arizona Dream, Jeremiah S. Chechik in Benny & Joon or Lasse Hallström in Gilbert Grape with another beautiful mouth of cinema, Leonardo DiCaprio. With atypical roles, the actor shows a rare charisma and talent. While he could have given in to ease, Depp was able to escape his image and become a serious and recognized actor. Subsequently, he worked with big names like Marlon Brando, Faye Dunaway (Don Juan Demarco), Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man), Terry Gilliam (Las Vegas Parano), Al Pacino (Donnie Brasco), Juliette Binoche (Le Chocolat) Or Roman Polanski (the 9th door). Very solicited, he spontaneously accepts roles and often works: he systematically bursts the screen. And the hearts too. Since we know many connections including Winona Ryder, Kate Moss and of course Vanessa Paradis with whom he had a daughter. In any case, the actor knew, thanks to a fairly rare artistic rigor, to become one of the favorite actors of the public and criticism.

Johnny Depp is an American actor known for his roles in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward with silver hands, Sweeney Todd: the Diabolique Barbier de Fleet Street and Charlie and the Chocolate factory. He was born on June 9, 1963 in Owensboro, Kentucky. Depp began his acting career in the 1980s by playing in television series such as 21 Jump Street and Private Resort. He then made his cinema debut in the 1990s with films like Edward with silver hands and Benny & Joon.

Since then, Depp has been very successful by playing complex and eccentric characters in Tim Burton films, such as Edward with silver hands, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd: the diabolical barber of Fleet Street. He was also nominated three times for the Oscar for best actor for his performance in the rebel wedding, Sweeney Todd: the Diabolique Barbier de Fleet Street and Dallas Buyers Club.

Depp is also known for his role as Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, for which he has received many positive criticisms. In addition to his acting career, Depp is also a musician and has played in rock groups such as The Kids and Rock City Angels. He is considered one of the most talented and most popular actors of his generation.
