Johnny Depp visits children’s hospital in Australia dressed as Jack Sparrow

Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp made a surprise visit to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor surprised the sick kids as he arrived at the hospital dressed as his fearless alter ego Jack Sparrow, reported Ace Showbiz.

Depp, 52, visited the hospital during a break from filming the latest installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” in Queensland. He arrived at the hospital at night by a helicopter.

At the hospital, the actor interacted and posed for some selfies with a number of his young fans including Max Bennet, a seven-year-old boy with transverse myelitis.

He’s having dinner with his mother Rachel when the black chopper landed.

“He was going from room to room seeing all the kids who couldn’t get out of bed. We waited out of the front of one of the rooms, and he came up to us and had a really good chat to Max,” Rachel said.The Children’s Hospital Foundation shared photos from the sweet stay on Facebook, writing, “Two very famous pirates made a special surprise visit to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital last night.”

“Dressed in full costume, both Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Stephen Graham as Scrum spent over three hours making a real difference to sick kids and their families in hospital!” the caption continues. “Both actors flew in for the visit from the Gold Coast, landing in a helicopter on the hospital’s rooftop as they took time out from filming the next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales.”


Well, shiver me timbers! Captain Jack Sparrow (aka Johnny Depp) and his shipmate Scrum (Stephen Graham) took some time…
