On Friday, Johnny Depp donned his Captain Jack Sparrow costume from his film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. As he entertained his youngest fans. For a virtual visit to a children’s hospital.
Talking to the children during the virtual visit streamed live through the medical facility. Johnny Depp said: ‘It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been there and I miss it and I wanted to say hello.
“It’s a wonderful facility. I’m with all of you and I send you all my love, all my irreverence and ignorance. Because it’s fun to be irreverent and ignorant. And thank you for sticking with me through all these very strange years.”
The ‘Edward Scissorhands’ main actor added :”These three beautiful young people I’ve spoken with this evening and having heard from people who sent videos in. Like little Ula, is one of the finest and most beautiful experiences that I’ve ever experienced and that is because of all of your commitment to this project and to taking care of one another and to helping out when times are curious and confusing.”
The 57-year-old has visited in person in the past. his visits took on a new meaning in 2007 after his daughter Lily Rose, now 21. Was treated there when she contracted e-coli poisoning.
Johnny Depp said after her recovery: “When my daughter was ill in Great Ormond Street. And it was the darkest period of my life, I’d always done these visits but after that experience the visits became more and more important.”
he continued: “The kids are so courageous but to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to the parents means everything in the world to me.”
