FINDING NEVERLAND

JOHNNY DEPP has earned both critical and popular acclaim for his work in a variety of memorable roles in unique feature films. Recently he received an Academy Award nomination, a Golden Globe nomination and a Screen Actor's Guild award for his tourde- force portrayal of Captain Jack in Jerry Bruckheimer's hit action-adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. Depp also starred opposite Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in Once Upon A Time In Mexico.

Depp's credits include the period crime thriller From Hell opposite Heather Graham, Blow co-starring Penelope Cruz and the romantic comedy Chocolat with Juliette Binoche. The actor also starred in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, his third collaboration with the director. He will reunite with Burton for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Other credits include The Astronaut's Wife and The Ninth Gate. In 1998, Depp starred in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel, with Benicio Del Toro and directed by Terry Gilliam. Next, he will star in the period drama The Libertine opposite Samantha Morton.

Hailed as the "Best Actor” of his generation for his performance in Tri-Star Pictures' Donnie Brasco co-starring Al Pacino and directed by Mike Newell, Depp has also starred in Dead Man, a western set in the late 1800's directed by Jim Jarmusch. In Don Juan DeMarco, Depp starred as a man convinced he is the world's greatest lover opposite legendary actors Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway.

It was his compelling performance in the title role of Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands that established Depp as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents and earned him a Best Actor Golden Globe nomination. He was honored with a second Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal in Benny & Joon, an offbeat love story in which he co-starred with Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson. Depp was reunited with Tim Burton for the critically acclaimed Ed Wood, the story of one of this country's most eccentric Bmovie directors.

His performance in this film garnered Depp his third Best Actor Golden Globe nomination. Other films include What's Eating Gilbert Grape directed by Lasse Hallström which starred Depp in the title role, and Arizona Dream, directed by Emir Kusturica, in which he starred with Jerry Lewis and Faye Dunaway, and he also starred in Paramount's Nick of Time directed by John Badham.

The Kentucky-born actor grew up in Florida where he developed an early interest in music. Joining a rock band named Kids, Depp found considerable regional success, eventually following the group to Los Angeles.

When the band broke up shortly thereafter, he turned to acting on the advice of a friend. It wasn't long before Depp landed his first major acting job in Nightmare on Elm Street. He went on to earn roles in several other films, including Slow Burn and the Academy Award-winning Platoon. Depp then won the role that would prove to be his breakthrough, as undercover detective Tim Hanson on the popular Fox television show 21 Jump Street. He starred on the series for four seasons before segueing to the big screen in the lead role of John Waters' Cry Baby.

Depp starred and made his feature directorial debut in The Brave, a film based on the novel by Gregory McDonald. Depp co-wrote the screenplay with his brother D.P. Depp. Kate Winslet (Sylvia Llewelyn Davies)
