Johnny Visits Children’s Hospital in Vancouver

He’s done it again – Captain Jack Sparrow took time from his pirate duties to visit patients at a children’s hospital in Vancouver, Canada.

Johnny, in his role as Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie franchise, surprised patients at BC Children’s Hospital on Monday (August 14). According to the hospital’s Facebook page, Johnny spent over five hours meeting face-to-face with patients in the oncology, general pediatrics and neurology wards.

“Meeting Captain Jack was a dream come true for my daughter,” said Sarah Kertcher, mother of 7-year-old Madison, a patient at the hospital. “He never broke character once and was so generous with his time. He was truly here for the kids and it brought tears to my eyes to see how special he made each one feel.”

Johnny’s visit to the Vancouver hospital was not his first time making a unexpected appearance to fans — in 2015, he, dressed as Sparrow, surprised patients at a children’s hospital in Australia.

The fifth and most recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” film was released in May.


  • Johnny Depp has such a good heart sometimes I feel like he really doesn’t know the magnitude he has in the lives of these children and their parents and hospital staff. Just to see the smiles on the faces of everyone he encounters is pretty amazing indeed. Love You Johnny

  • Johnny is so sweet …a kind soul!

    • Ur so right. Tell him, for me, way to go, job well done, & then some. I remember meeting him as a child that was insecure, unsure & more. He’s come a long way baby, & helped MANY to get thru. God Bless, goodbye

  • Good man!
    And: He does that very often.
