June 9, 1963
On this day in Horror History, John Christopher Depp was born in Owensboro Kentucky. One of the most beloved and versatile cult actors of all time, Depp would make his film debut in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and spawn a career that has landed him in such films as Edward Scissorhands (1990), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Sleepy Hollow (1999), From Hell (2001), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), and countless other cult films and franchises. A proud father, musician and an inspiration to millions who have fallen in love with a incomparable brilliance he has lent to some of the most iconic roles in cinematic history, Depp will forever have a legacy as one of the greatest actors of the twentieth century.
”I loved playing Edward Scissorhands (1990) because there's nothing cynical, jaded or impure about him. It's almost a letdown to look in the mirror and realize I'm not Edward.”-Johnny Depp
I am a big Depp fan.
"One of the most incredible moments I've ever had was sitting in Vincent's trailer . . . I was showing him this first-edition book I have of the complete works of [Edgar Allan Poe], with really amazing illustrations. Vincent was going nuts over the drawings, and he started talking about The Tomb of Ligeia (1964). Then he closed the book and began to recite it to me in this beautiful voice, filling the room with huge sounds. Such passion! I looked in the book later, and it was verbatim. Word perfect. It was a great moment. I'll never forget that." -Johnny Depp
