Johnny Depp Was Furious About This on a Pirates of the Caribbean Set

Even though the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise propelled Johnny Depp to fame, it demanded him to undertake numerous challenging stunts. Thus while filming Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, there were specific stunts that required assistance from a body double, Tony Angelotti. During one scene, Angelotti therefore recounted a particular incident to Metro, highlighting the actor’s true compassion. He said,

 “I do remember one time where I saw [Depp] extremely angry,–And it was when we were filming the blacksmith forge fight, and I was fighting Orlando Bloom, and Johnny’s sitting over by the camera watching.”

“The fights, they’ll get really intense and fast,–And Orlando, I think, got lost at one point and went to another direction, and I ducked back, and the tip of his blade caught right near my eyebrow. I was okay, it was literally like a nick. A hair closer would have left at a decent mark. Johnny got up out of his chair, walked right over to this guy, and said, ‘We’re not doing a f–king thing until he gets looked at by the medic,”

Angelotti then narrated,

“You could have heard a pin drop on that set. And it was like, “Thank you, Johnny!” And of course, the medic was there in a split second and it was fine […] That’s the rare occasion that I saw him, he blew a gasket.”

Angelotti along with others was also taken aback to witness the actor, who generally resides in the calmer realm of emotions, engulfed in rage.
