It was a case of twice lucky for a Gold Coast woman who got to meet Hollywood star Johnny Depp recently for the second time.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star posed with fans earlier this month on the Coast after shooting final scenes for the latest instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Bond University student Annamika Calcino was fortune enough to catch up with the star again, having met him on the set of a previous film.


“The weather was cold but it was worth the wait,” said Annamika.

“The last time I met Johnny Deep was a different set. Since then I have became friends with the director, and meeting Johnny this time was lovely.

“I became a fan of Johnny Depp because I liked his movies, but now I like his movies because I like Johnny Depp as a person.

“He was fun and made everyone feel comfortable.

“He was energetic, and acting like Jack Sparrow, it was incredible.”


Depp posed with hundreds of fans before visiting sick children at the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane.
