  • Depp is known for similar impromptu appearances as Captain Jack Sparrow. In light of recent revelations, I find his casting unsettling, and his continued publicity more so. I also have a much higher expectation for HP fans than other fandoms and I'm surprised that there hasn't been more backlash than there has been.

  • As an older woman I've never really been to this type of thing, I think it's kind of awesome that Johnny Depp will take his time to go and see the fans. To some people this might seem kind of weird but Johnny Depp it's always been that kind of person. Hopefully he keeps it up and straighten his life out because from what I hear he could use it.

  • I was upset that he was kept on for the first Fantastic Beasts film and am upset that he is still associated with the franchise. There was backlash with him in the original movie but it seems that fandoms have a short memory. It appear. That Depp is still having issues too if he couldn’t maintain the accept and mannerisms seen in the trailer. Maybe he needs to get out of the spotlight and take some time to get himself right before taking any more roles.

  • I’ve always love how Johnny Depp is in character whenever he’a doing a movie. This is what sets him apart from other actors in Hollywood. It can be a bit a weird at times..a lot of time actually..but that’s what makes home one of the best actors of his generation and in this lifetime. I’m really looking forward to this movie. I hope it lives up to expectations.
