What are Johnny Depp's most famous films?
Throughout his career Johnny has taken on "larger-than-life" roles, starting with a supporting role in Oliver Stone's Vietnam War film Platoon in 1986, then playing the title role in Edward Scissorhands (1990).
He later found box office success in fantasy adventure films including Sleepy Hollow (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) and Alice in Wonderland (2010).
Other well-known films include Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Blow (2001), Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (2016) and Finding Neverland (2004).
But it is probably playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise (2003 to present) that he is now most known for.
In 2017 he has a key role in Kenneth Branagh's Murder On The Orient Express but fans shouldn't expect him to survive until the end.

Is Johnny Depp in debt? What is his net worth?
Johnny Depp is currently suing his business managers The Management Group for £22million over claims they mishandled his finances.
The actor alleged that the firm caused him to lose tens of millions of dollars, racked up more than $40 million in debt without his knowledge, failed to file his property taxes on time, made unauthorised loans, and overpaid for security and other services, amongst other charges.
But The Management Group have revealed a series of emails in their countersuit in which he refused to control his spending.
In one exchange he was urged to “take it easy” on holiday spending and reassess his financial situation.
The Management Group claim that despite the fact that Johnny had been paid $650 million in the previous 13 years, his "lavish spending" habits made it so he no longer had enough liquid cash to cover his basic monthly expenses, which topped $2 million per month.
The Management Group claim that Johnny put himself in this position by over-spending in a reckless way.
Johnny reportedly spends $3.6 million per year to maintain a 40-person full-time staff, $30,000 per month on wine, $150,000 per month on bodyguards, and $200,000 per month on private jet travel.
He also reportedly spent $75 million to purchase more than 14 homes around the world including a 45 acre chateau in France, a horse farm in Kentucky, several islands in the Bahamas.
The Management Group insist "he was well aware" of his financial situation.
It's now being reported that Johnny is claiming that some of his family and friends are partly responsible for his financial problems.
Those Johnny says took “unauthorised loans” from him are his sister Christi Dembrowski – her brother’s personal manager and head of his production company – plus nephew William Rassel, personal assistant Nathan Holmes, friends James Russo, Sal Jenco, and Bruce Witkin – and Union Music.
Even with all of this going on, Johnny's reported net worth is £159million.
He can command around £16million a film.

Johnny ended up in trouble when he arrived in Australia with his dogs in 2015
What happened to Johnny Depp and his dogs?
In 2015, Johnny and his then-wife Amber Heard ended up in hot water when they jetted into Australia with pet dogs Pistol and Boo without declaring the pooches were with them – and thus breaching strict Aussie biosecurity laws (which include dogs foreign to Australia being quarantined for a minimum of 10 days).
In April 2016, Amber pleaded guilty to falsifying quarantine documents and while the biosecurity charges were dropped, she was placed on a one-month good behaviour bond and paid a $1,000 (AUS Dollar) fine for producing a false document – and Amber and Jonny released a joint video apology following the debacle.
