Johnny Depp is an actor who played in about 90 movies and I find that these are his ten best movie roles. I like Johnny Depp (and my mum wants to marry him) because he can act really well and he can play very different roles.
He also did the voice of one of my favorite characters ever, Victor van Dort in Corpse Bride (my favorite movie ever! from my favorite director ever! oh well we were talking about Johnny!) but I didn’t put that role in my list as it was just the voice.

Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean
Johnny Depp plays a pirate named Captain Jack Sparrow in the movie. He steals things and always escapes. He’s very smart (and handsome;)). It really is one of my favorite Johnny Depp roles. There are four parts of the Pirates of the Caribbean and there will be a number five, yeah!
Gilbert Grape in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
Johnny Depp plays Gilbert Grape, the older brother of Arnie and he has to do a lot at the same time like taking care of Arnie and his mother and work!

Johnny Depp plays Willy Wonka and he is a genius and makes candy, but someone stole his secret recipes and he closes his factory. Charlie and the Chocolate factory is based on a book by Roald Dahl.
