Johnny Depp is a master of big screen disguise after an impressive range of roles over the last three decades.
After first appearing as a baby faced teen in 1980s TV show 21 Jump Street – later appearing as a cop in the big screen reboot years later – the star has gone on to define a number of memorable characters.
While performances in the likes of Sleepy Hollow , Rango and Finding Neverland have impressed fans and critics, his changing image across decades of films has earned him a reputation as a chameleon.
The changing faces of Johnny Depp
Here is a look at some of his recognisable roles and looks over the years.
Edward Scissorhands (1990)
In 1990, Depp starred as the titular character in Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands – making it the first in a long line of collaborations between the pair.
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? (1993)
A much more natural look for the long-haired star, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? showed that even without extravagant makeup, the actor still made each character distinctive and memorable.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
Johnny Depp – Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
This film is an iconic cult classic – and Depp’s appearance as Raoul Duke is a big reason for that.
Before Night Falls (2000)
Appearing alongside Javier Bardem in an adaptation of Reinaldo Arenas’ autobiography, Depp went all out as Bon Bon.
Pirates of the Caribbean series (2003-present)
With inspirations including classic pirates, Keith Richards and nomads, the star’s portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow helped the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise become the blockbuster success it remains today.
The Libertine (2004)
In this 2004 film, Depp’s ability to blend into any character helped his performance as Johny Whilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
With yet another drastic image change, the star was able to make audiences forget about Gene Wilder’s iconic turn as Willy Wonka and embrace his own portrayal on its own merit.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
With a flash of white hair and a signature scowl, Depp collaborated with Tim Burton again as the Demon Barber in this musical horror – and he looked the part.
Alice in Wonderland (2010)
Like Willy Wonka five years earlier, the actor faced a challenge but created an instantly memorable character when he redefined the Mad Hatter.
Dark Shadows (2012)
More makeup, this time for the role of vampire Barnabas Collins in the reboot of 1960s soap opera Dark Shadows.
The Lone Ranger (2013)
The following year, he brought Tonto to life on the big screen for The Lone Ranger and gave the character new life – it was the first time the pair appeared in a film in more than 32 years.
Last year, Depp took on the title role of Lord Charlie Mortdecai – an art dealer and swindler – in this adaptation of the novel series of the same name.
Black Mass (2015)
A few months later, there was another dramatic transformation as gang leader James ‘Whitey’ Bulger, with the balding head and very intimidating gaze.
Donald Trump – Funny Or Die (2016)
To top it off, this year Depp spoofed Donald Trump in a satirical film for Funny Or Die – and he really looked the part.
