As the iconic American actor turns 50, we look back on some of his best roles and the way music helped shape him and his movies.
Depp’s first major role was in the 1990 comedy musical, Cry Baby, directed by John ‘Hairspray’ Waters. To cast the role of the eponymous hero, Waters bought himself a bunch of teen magazines, and noticed all of them had Depp on the cover - he was appearing in the TV crime show 21 Jump Street at the time. Despite being a good singer, Depp didn’t however provide his own singing vocals for Cry Baby. His character was dubbed by a Californian Rockabilly musician.
