Hollywood stars Johny Depp and Robert Downey Jr shine their limelight to sick children who are most in need of a smile. Depp, who plays the charismatic but often treacherous Captain Jack Sparrow in the hit movie franchise Pirates Of The Caribbean, channeled his character’s softer side as he took time out from filming the latest installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales, to visit poorly children in hospital, reports the daily mail.
The Hollywood star turned up at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Queensland, in full costume after a busy day filming scenes on the Gold Coast set. The surprise visit delighted the young patients at the hospital, which treats newborns and children up to 16 years of age. Many posed for selfies with the 52-year-old actor who admitted he often travels with his Captain Jack Sparrow costume for when he makes impromptu visits.
In a series of sweet snaps of the star’s hospital tour, Depp can be seen chatting to young fans and giving some hugs. The images were taken by Juiced TV – a show made by the children being treated at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. The 30-minute weekly kids TV show often features interviews with celebrities who visit and Depp appeared to be answering questions from the patients in some of the images.
