Johnny Depp has not stepped into the shoes of Pirates of the Caribbean’s Jack Sparrow. The actor completely transformed himself and acted in the franchise for years. The iconic look with the hat, the beads, the hair, and his voice are some things that people can never forget. Fans have been missing the actor’s persona as the pirate for some time now. However, one lucky fan got the chance to meet Jack Sparrow once again.
The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actor appeared at the Deauville American Film Festival in France. He was named as a guest of honour at the event and was there to promote the screening of his movie City of Lies. Depp also spent some time mingling with fans at the event.

A video captured by Estelle Jachimiak, mother of the young boy, shows them also holding a drawing of the character along with a message that reads, “Johnny I love you.” The video went viral on social media as well.
