Johnny Depp’s Acting Career

Unbeknownst to many, Johnny Depp intended to be a rock star and began his media career with a local rock band. His quest to become a master actor began in 1984, when he appeared in the horror film “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”

Like Carrot Top, Johnny Depp only began to climb to notoriety following a prominent appearance in the comedy program ‘Private Resort,’ where he was by far the most noticeable performer.

His outstanding performance and ratings drew the attention of A-list Hollywood producers, and he briefly landed the lead role in ‘Thrasin,’ a 1986 skating drama, but unfortunately for Johnny Depp, the movie director’s decision to cast him in the lead role was overruled by the movie producer, and Johnny Depp was forced to settle for a role as a member of the film’s minorities.

The sabotage had no effect on Johnny Depp, who went on to become one of America’s biggest performers.
