Johnny Depp (born June 9, 1963 in Owensboro, Kentucky) is an American actor, script writer, director, producer, musician. His full name is John Christopher Depp II.
He is the son of an engineer and a waitress. He grew up with his brother and his sister and spent a lot of time with his grandfather. When his grandfather died, Depp was seven years old. His family went to Florida and in the next years, they had to change homes often. Johnny became worse at school and had his first experiences with drugs at the age of 15. He was thrown out of school and started to make music in a band called The Flame, and later on The Kids. His ex-wife is Lori Anne Allison (Lori A. Depp). She introduced him to actor Nicolas Cage. He has a daughter, Lily-Rose and son Jack with his partner, French singer Vanessa Paradis.
His first movie was Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984, which was quite a success. Afterwards, he decided to go to an acting school in Los Angeles. He got a small part in the movie Platoon and shortly after this, he was offered a part in the TV series 21 Jump Street which he first turned down but finally accepted.
Since then he has been a star. Young people loved him, but this was not what he liked, so he took drugs and was in the news because of this. But his career went on and he played in lots of movies.
Depp is one of Hollywood's most popular actors who can play in a huge range of roles. Normally he plays rather odd characters, for example in Finding Neverland. He is not only liked for his look but also for his talent to act and his incomparable gestures.
He played the title character of Edward Scissorhands (1990), and later found box office success in films such as Sleepy Hollow (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Rango (2011), and the Pirates of the Caribbean film series (2003–present). He has collaborated with director and friend Tim Burton in seven films, their most recent collaboration being Alice in Wonderland (2010).
