OK, I have written before that I think Johnny Depp is cool, and one of the only grounded people in the movie business, but this is still really cool and surprising.
Johnny Depp Loves His Fans
Although you will never hear this story from him or his publicists, Johnny Depp recorded a personalized message for Sophie Wilkinson, a 17 year old straight-A student who fell into a coma after being critically injured in a car accident five months ago. Desperate to try anything that might bring his daughter back, Wilkinson’s father, Andrew, wrote Depp asking for the message, explaining to Depp that he was his daughter’s favorite actor and POTC was her favorite movie. And, of course, Johnny did it. In his Jack Sparrow voice.
"Remarkably enough, the young girl began moving her right leg shortly after hearing the recording of Depp. The parents shed tears of joy to know that their daughter has hope of returning to life. Depp was apparently so touched with the letter written to him by Andrew, he committed himself to doing anything necessary to help out a fan and a young girl in need."
