More About The Secret World of Johnny Depp by Nigel Goodall
 
 
 
Overview
Arare glimpse into the world of a superstarwhose virtuoso eccentricity and willingness to take on unconventional films fora mass audiencehas helped himretain alternative credentials and respect from critics that most actors only dream ofNot only is Johnny Depp a huge star, but his unconventional choice of movie roles has made him a fascinating and mysterious character, endearing himself to audiences as diverse as the roles he plays. With appearances in both children's and adult films such as"Alice in Wonderland"and "Public Enemies," Depp has a mass market cross-generational appeal. Tracing his career from his debut in "Nightmare on Elm Street" in 1984 through to his flamboyant turn as the voice of Victor Van Dort in "Corpse Bride "and the spectacular success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, this biography shows how Depp has successfully carved a niche for himself as a serious, somewhat dark, idiosyncratic performer, consistently selecting roles that surprised critics and audiences alike. Other aspects of the charismatic actor's life chartedhere include failed engagements to Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder, and Kate Moss; his currentrelationship with French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children; andhis early wild parallel career as a rock musician."
