What should I write about Johnny Depp? Perhaps a mix of his movies and his roles might create a nice story for you to feed on. One major thing. This is a fiction created from the writer, from the list of movies starred by Johnny Depp. Please do not consider this as a work against Johnny Depp.
Starting out as a teen idol, he grew scissor hands and ended up becoming Edward Scissorhands. His hands eventually got cured when he got taken to a ship, called the Black Pearl. His life as a pirate had been delirious, with him becoming the dreaded captain Jack Sparrow. He nearly got caught by the Elizabeth Swan and her lover, yet took another daring escape towards his voyage. As he wandered off towards mischief, he found himself face to face with a young boy in Kensington park (Peter Pan) and got a motive to write a story. He chose to hide his original name, and decided to use the name, Sir James Matthew Barrie (aka J.M.Barrie).
His written novel, about ‘Neverland’ caused huge fandom. Therefore he ended up getting very rich. He then decided to use his money to build a giant chocolate factory. He yet again decided to use another alias, becoming the famous ‘Willy Wonka’. His creativity and originality of the created chocolates led to his factory receiving a huge success. Yet during his long life, he felt somewhat lonely and empty. So he began looking for his successor. He found a young boy named Charlie after his set of tests, and tried to adopt him. Yet Charlie refused to be parted from his family. Then Willy Wonka felt deeply touched. He wanted to have a family himself. After leaving the company to Charlie, he went off in search of a family – a wife that would be able to nurture him.
He found a young lady and decided to marry her. While he was practising his marriage process with the lady, he made a mistake, which lead a corpse think that he had asked her to marry him. The Corpse Bride asked for his name, which he replied to be Victor Van Dort. After a long conflict with his true bride and the corpse bride, he finally got to marry his original wife, whilst the corpse bride finally truly died and went to heaven. During his long marriage life, he got bored, and decided to go out to the sea again. He rejoined his crew and worked as the dreaded Captain for a while. As his wife missed him dearly, he came back to mainland. Yet he had to work in order to sustain his family.
He began to work as a hair-dresser. However, since he had lived such a long time with the bloodiness of the pirates, he couldn’t resists himself as he killed the customers. His neighbour, the baker who lived below him helped him remove the corpses by baking them into pies. This incident was later found out in the world as the ‘Sweeney Todd’ case. As he had to run away from the world, he yet again rejoined his crew, at the worlds end. However he did miss his family, and came back. However, on his way back, he fell down a rabbit hole, and hit his head severely on a rock. As all he could think of was his relationship to working with other people’s head, he began to think of himself as a hatter. Everyone else around him considered him to the ‘Mad Hatter’. However, as he got together with Alice, another sane person, he figured out that he missed the sea.
He yet again returned to the sea, and was greeted by his former crew ‘on stranger tides’. But he made a mistake, and was thrown out onto the mainland again. He found himself working with ‘the lone ranger’. During his journey with him, he was bitten by a vampire. He became then famous vampire ‘Barnabas Collins’. He found his wife, yet she was long dead, leaving only his son behind. As his son didn’t recognise him, he decided that all was lost, and that he ought not live in a world without his wife. He locked himself on the top of the mansion. After a few hundred years, another young lady found him. He fell madly in love with her, and followed her as her ‘dark shadow’. His love was proven true when they won a witch together, and he turned her to a vampire too.
The times had changed though, and he decided to learn the new technology that was being developed. He proved his cleverness when he became a famous technician, Dr. Will Caster. He loaded himself onto the internet when he died, and tried to overwhelm the world. Yet all his efforts had failed, as he found himself useless when everyone decided not to use the internet. The ‘transcendence’ had ended, and all technology had been forgotten in our world. He had nothing to do.
Therefore he created an avatar that he could control. He couldn’t make a human being, so instead he created the avatar of a ‘wolf’. He went ‘into the woods’, and tried to devour a young girl in earnest to try his new avatar out. Yet he got killed by a baker who was passing by. He created yet another avatar, and this time, succeeded in creating a human being. He hid into the world, and over decades, created his family name of ‘Mortdecai’. His family then received a huge sum of money from his wits. However, he had a craving for growing a moustache. Yet it didn’t really matter. However, whilst he was travelling with his new wife, he fell into the same rabbit hole again. He found himself in the same old village, and began to call himself as the ‘Mad Hatter’ again.
The story of his life hasn’t ended yet, as his life as an actor hasn’t ended.
