The actor best known for his role as Jack Sparrow in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean gave the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia a serious fright when, for inapparent reasons, showed up to the children’s cancer ward in full Edward Scissorhands costume.
The children, who were all born years after the film’s release were mortified by the pale face and, of course, the scissorhands. Depp, who is known for transforming himself into adventurous characters, took the role seriously, answering shyly to questions and attempting to give one girl a haircut. The scissor-wounds that followed were described as more disturbing than Mortdecai, which when mentioned, made several of the nurses sick to their stomachs.
Depp was quickly escorted out of the building when he volunteered to perform surgery on one dying boy. Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital has suspended all future celebrity visits indefinitely.
