During filming of Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in London, Johnny Depp recently left the set in order to help out a kid seeking info from Jack Sparrow, reports Lindsay Reiser:

Beatrice Delap, 9, a student from the southeast London area, wrote to actor Johnny Depp asking for help from his "Pirates of the Caribbean" character, Jack Sparrow. In the letter, Delap wrote that she and her fellow students were a "bunch of budding young pirates," but that they needed some professional assistance in the mutiny department.

Depp, who like many successful stars has a canny instinct for a promo moment that might feel authentic, showed up at the student's primary school in full Sparrow regalia. Check out in the clip.
