Johnny Depp and his Pirates of Caribbean’s stunt double
Johnny Depp has starred in five of the Pirates of The Caribbean movies. But even the star has taken some help to master his role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Tony Angelotti, who was born in the mid-1950s has doubled Depp in all five installments of the Pirates of Caribbean films. He won two Taurus World Stunt Awards for the best fight as the stunt double for Johnny Depp in the movie’s first and second installments Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) & Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006).
He was seriously injured during the filming of Dead Man’s Chest on July 21, 2005, when the stunt rehearsal went wrong but recovered completely. Among his resume, he was the award-winning gymnast at the University of Michigan and has performed stunt in movies like Batman Forever (1995), Starship Troopers (1997), The Mask of Zorro (1998) and Planet of the Apes (2001).
