johnny depp pirates Johnny Depp drops by London school, reaffirms status as coolest ever

Johnny Depp must get an awful lot of fan mail — between 3 and 47 letters each year from us alone — so its safe to say most of it probably never crosses his eyes.

But some of it does. And in the case of 9-year-old Beatrice Delap, who sent him a plea to help lead a mutiny against the teachers at her school in South London.

]]>reports the actor showed up, in character and costume as Captain Jack Sparrow, to perform for the students for 15 minutes. And though he didn’t lead a mutiny (he advised against it), he did lecture the children on the importance of… dental hygiene. Here’s a somewhat grainy clip of the appearance (via the New York Times), including little Beatrice’s triumphant meeting with the actor. Her cred is pretty much set through college now.
