Johnny Depp visits London school as Captain Jack Sparrow

Help

Hollywood star Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at a school assembly in south London after one of the children wrote to him with an invitation.

Beatrice, nine, sent a letter to the actor asking for piracy lessons to help lead a mutiny against the teachers.

He astonished pupils at the school in Greenwich by agreeing to visit them as Pirates of the Caribbean character Captain Jack Sparrow.
