Johnny had a humble start on his life journey to be the man we know today. He dropped out of high school to pursue his dreams and tried to make it as a musician. However, the career path he took changed after Nicolas Cage advised him to turn to acting. Johnny Depp starred in his movie debut – A Nightmare on the Elm Street in 1984, which is a movie we know so well today. It only went up in success after that, as he got a chance to replace Jeff Yagher in 21 Jump Street, a popular TV series back in 1987.

Then, Johnny Depp started to collaborate with Tim Burton, who is one of his best friends now. He built himself a name by playing dark, mysterious characters. It helped that he has dark brown eyes that just seem to hide a lot behind them. Johnny became and remained fan-favorite by starring in movies like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and being Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, which received many sequels after gaining popularity. But take a look at his role of Edward Scissorhands, and what he had to say below.
