Los Angeles | Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp said that he became an actor by accident. The 53-year-old actor appeared on the Jonesy’s Jukebox radio talk show alongside his band members from the Hollywood Vampires – Matt Sorum, Robert DeLeo and Bruce Witkin.
Depp revealed that he tripped into acting while trying to pursue music as a teenager, reported People magazine. I’ve (been a musician) since I was little. I have played since I was 12. I started playing clubs when I was like 13 in Miami, Depp said. I needed to pay rent.
Somebody said, ‘Why don’t you go meet an agent. My agent is with Nick Cage,’ so she sent me on an audition for something and I got it, he added. The Sleepy Hollow star said it wasn’t until his band broke up that he considered acting full-time. It seemed like a good way to pay the rent for a minute, he said.
