Charismatic actor, musician and producer Johnny Depp turns 55 this Saturday. Considered as one of the world’s biggest movie stars, he was listed as the highest paid actor in the 2012 Guinness World Records and was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2015. Committed to the task of challenging himself as a performer, Mr. Depp has portrayed a variety of roles that have become iconic for his fans, such as Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Brasco, Raoul Duke, and Capt. Jack Sparrow.
To celebrate his upcoming birthday, we have created the Johnny Depp Timeline – a brief visual biography that highlights several important life events and a few of the most popular films in which he was cast.
Although his name is almost instantly associated with Hollywood and cinema, Mr. Depp is a gifted musician too. Presently performing in the supergroup Hollywood Vampires along with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, he proved his musical skills through collaborations with artists and bands such as Marilyn Manson and Oasis, or for movie soundtracks like Chocolat and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
Depp’s love for music seems to have started long before he even considered acting. Dropping out of high school to pursue a career as a rock musician, he tried to resume school activity 2 weeks later, only to be told by the principal to follow his dreams. Heeding the advice, he soon started playing with a local band and expanded his circle of influence.
It was through his first wife, the sister of his band’s bass player, that Johnny Depp met actor Nicolas Cage who advised him to go into acting.
The Johnny Depp chronology was built with Office Timeline, an intuitive and user-friendly add-in for PowerPoint that helps you easily create, edit and update timelines, Gantt charts, schedules, and other similar visuals. You can copy and share the image for free and update or restyle it using the Plus edition of the tool.
