Johnny Depp channeled his iconic Pirates of the Caribbean character Captain Jack Sparrow for his adoring fans outside the court on Wednesday.
Depp launched a defamation lawsuit against his ex wife Amber Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post. The trial started Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
When leaving the court building in a black SUV on Wednesday, Depp was met by many adoring fans, screaming their love for him and attempting to give him gifts.
One woman shouted:
“You’ll always be our captain jack sparrow”
Changing his voice to the beloved character’s slurred British accent, Depp said:
‘He’s still around somewhere. I see him now and again,’
‘He shows up now and again.’
The 58-year-old can be heard saying:
“Thank you guys so much, you are so sweet.”
“Love you guys”
