Johnny Depp decided to make one little girl’s wish come true when he showed up at a London school in full pirate attire after she had written to him for help staging a school “mutiny.”
Beatrice Delap, 9, wrote a letter to Captain Jack Sparrow, of “Pirates of the Caribbean” fame, looking for a little assistance with an uprising against teachers at Meridian Primary School.
“We are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we’d love if you could come and help,” she wrote in the letter.
Depp happened to be in south-east London filming “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”, so he gave the school 10 minutes notice on Wednesday that he and his crew were on their way.
The school immediately called an assembly and Captain Jack Sparrow walked in, drawing gasps from stunned students.
Depp, with letter in hand, summoned Delap up to the front of the assembly, hugged her, and told her that rebellion wasn’t the best course of action.
“Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today because there are police outside monitoring me,” Depp, who is a father of two, told the little girl.
