Johnny Depp Dressed as Jack Sparrow Surprises Fan at School

Photo Courtesy - Disney(LONDON) -- A nine-year-old Pirates of the Carribbean fan, and the rest of her Southeast London Elementary School, got quite a shock when a letter she wrote to actor Johnny Depp received a very personal response.

Beatrice Delap wrote to Depp's character Captain Jack Sparrow after visiting the U.K. set of Pirates of the Carribbean: On Stranger Tides. The little girl wrote that she and her fellow "budding young pirates" were "having trouble mutinying against the teachers. We'd love it if you could come and help."

In response, Depp and several other actors stormed the Meridian Primary School in full character dress, before a stunned school assembly, and then Depp asked to speak personally to Delap. He gave his young fan a hug and advised mutiny wasn't the best idea, "because there are police outside monitoring me."

Someone caught the moment on their cell phone camera and posted the video on YouTube.
