Personal Quote:

I'd been in high school three years, and I may have just walked in yesterday. I had, like, eight credits. I was in my third year of high school and I didn't want to be there. I was bored out of my mind and I hated it. See more »

Trivia:

Has twice recorded with British band Oasis. Most notably, he plays lead slide guitar on the track "Fade In-Out", from the 1997 album Be Here Now. Noel Gallagher, Oasis's lead guitarist, was allegedly too drunk to perform it himself, so celebrity pal Depp stepped in and nailed the lead on one take. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently plays British characters: Sleepy Hollow (1999), From Hell (2001), the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, Dark Shadows (2012), etc. See more »
