There is no doubt that the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise made actor Johnny Depp a household name. His portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow was loved by fans all over the world. However, the actor was removed from the franchise after Amber Heard’s abuse allegations surfaced.

Johnny Depp met Orlando Bloom while filming the movie series, as they played Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, respectively. Their on-screen chemistry can also be seen in real life as the two actors have remained close friends over the years. In his past interviews, Bloom has always praised Depp for the magic he brings to the big screen.

In 2003, actor Orlando Bloom told BBC that Johnny Depp is his hero, adding that he had a lot of fun with him while filming The Curse of the Black Pearl, their first movie together,

“It was the most fun I’ve ever had. I had the chance to work with one of my heroes, Johnny Depp, and to see how he works, which was really inspiring for me at this stage in my career.”

They have worked together in four Pirates of the Caribbean movies, The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), Dead Man’s Chest (2006), At World’s End (2007), and Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).
