Depp finally sat down with James Lipton in 2002 for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio. It seems rather odd that he would get a career perspective so early in his life, but he has assembled an impressive resume which this show skims broadly over. Depp talks about how he got into music, joined a band and how this led to his first acting gig in A Nightmare on Elm Street. Unfortunately, Lipton skips over Depp's pivotal role in Cry-Baby and instead delves into his first collaboration with Tim Burton with Edward Scissorhands.
Depp also talks about how he got the role in Ed Wood and how he approached the character as well as what influenced his performance: a mix of Ronald Reagan, the Tin Man and Casey Kasem.Read more ›
A part of me wishes IAS hadn't interviewed Depp until a couple of years ago so we could hear his thoughts on the sudden (though well-deserved) turn in his fortunes, going from being box-office poison to blockbuster superstar and what it's like to finally be appreciated for his work, even if he hasn't changed the way he goes about choosing roles and making them his own. ;)
THIS DVD ARRIVED IN GREAT TIME AND CONDITION AND I GOT IT FOR A GREAT PRICE - I AM VERY SATISFIED
As an avid movie buff and big fan of Johnny Depp, I really loved this interview. The lecture theatre (Actor's Studio auditorium) was packed full of eager students seeking some wisdom from this young master and the secrets of his success. As well, there was a huge crowd at the door who could not get into the studio. It was one of the most sought after interviews in Actor's Studio history.
I have enjoyed many episodes of Inside the Actors Studio but this was one of my favourites (alongside Mia Farrow and Jessica Lange).
My favourite part of the interviews are always the concluding questions, "when you go to heaven and God welcomes you at the gate, what would you want him to say?"
Understandably, the interview time imposes restraints on the number of movies covered and importantly working with a young Leonardo Di Caprio. Also question time from the audience was limited.
Otherwise, excellent ****

Awesome session of Inside the Actor's Studio. If you are a fan of Johnny Depp, this interview is definitely appealing!Published on January 12, 2014 by Neena
I see every movie he makes. When he did Pirates, I was thrilled. He is so funny. The Ninth Gate is another I like. He can do no wrong.Published on September 5, 2013 by Cheryl Amelino
