Other videos started popping up as Depp happily interacted with his fans.
Jessica Nichole described the experience, saying that it made her life “complete.”
In the past, Depp told Graham Norton about a visit to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital, where he visited sick children dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.
“For me it’s a gift,” Depp told The Graham Norton Show. “They give me the gift. When my daughter was ill in Great Ormond Street 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. 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.”
The fifth Pirates’s movie, “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” is set to release on May 26.
