“So, early on I just wanted to wait a while,” he said. “And saw where they were going to go with it.”
Shortly after taking the role, however, Depp was almost fired for his portrayal, as the Disney bosses at the time didn’t like how he was playing Jack Sparrow.
Depp explained the Disney bosses thought he was acting “too gay” – to which he sarcastically replied: “Don’t you know? I play all my characters as gay.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is available to watch on Disney Plus.
