HOLLYWOOD Johnny Depp is often compared to Peter Pan for playing his whimsical role as Captain Jack Sparrow on Pirates, but Depp doesnt mind his kid-like qualities. He tells Jeanne Wolf, We lose touch with the kid inside us. Imagination is the greatest gift we have. Im still kind of a kid in a lot of ways. Even my daughter sometimes says, Poppa, grow up!
HOLLYWOOD Orlando Bloom loves playing the good- hearted Will Turner on Pirates Of The Caribbean films and hopes he has some personality traits in common with the sweet sailor. Bloom tells Jeanne Wolf, Im definitely an awesome swordsman and hes become one. Also, I think Will is always trying to do the right thing. I would say Orlando tries to do the right thing most of the time well, occasionally.
HOLLYWOOD Pirates director Gore Verbinsky has worked with the cast on the films for nearly four years and admits hes gone head-to-head with Johnny Depp many times due to their creative differences on the set.

Id suggest something and then he would one-up me or vice versa. It became a game of How far can we go?
HOLLYWOOD Actor Chow Yun Fat plays the evil Captain Sao Feng on Pirates Of The Caribbean: At Worlds End and admits filming his dramatic death scene was really difficult due to some unexpected interruptions.

HOLLYWOOD Bill Nighy may play scurvy swashbuckler Davy Jones on Pirates, but he admits to Jeanne Wolf that he wouldnt be a very good pirate in real life.
