Believe it or not, Johnny Depp’s first film role was in the horror movie A Nightmare on Elm Street. He may have been one of Freddie Krueger’s victims in the movie, but his real-life career didn’t stop there.
Depp went on to play some of the most interesting characters of the last 30 years. Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Raoul Duke, and of course Captain Jack Sparrow. That last role has defined his career and made him very, very rich.
