In 1984, Hollywood introduced us to Johnny Depp in Nightmare on Elm Street, an actor who has since grown to be one the best and most versatile performers in the industry. He may not have won an Oscar as yet but he has won millions of hearts across the world.
Depp had done some minor roles before the 1984 blockbuster, but it was his performance in the movie that landed him a lead spot on the television series 21 Jump Street (1987-91) and turned him into a teenage heartthrob.
Since then, Depp has given us some of Hollywood’s most iconic roles in Pirates Of The Carribean, Alice In Wonderland, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd, Finding Neverland and Edward Scissorhands.
On his 53rd birthday, here’s a celebration of some of his best works.
Happy Birthday, Johnny! Keep us entertained with your performances.
