From his very first appearance, in 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, to the present day, Johnny Depp has made a career of playing enigmatic characters. Perhaps that’s why he still has a career. He rarely plays the same character twice (Pirates of the Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow being the notable exception), which helps him steer clear of wearing out his welcome with his fans. He realizes how important that is, since he knows he would have no career without them. (Click on the media bar below to hear Johnny Depp)
Depp’s latest Pirates adventure, Dead Men Tell No Tales, is in theaters now.
