Johnny Depp (1963 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) [Glen Lantz]: Killed (off-screen) when Robert Englund pulls him down into his bed after he falls asleep; we see Robert grab him and pull him down, followed by a fountain of blood gushing from the bed. (There is a deleted scene where his body is lifted up into the air before being dropped down again.) He later reappears in Heather Langenkamp's dream.
  • Platoon (1986) [Private Lerner]: Mortally wounded in combat with the Viet Cong; the movie doesn't actually confirm that he's killed, but he's so badly wounded that it seems a safe assumption. 
  • Ed Wood (1994) [Edward D. Wood Jr.]: Dies (off-screen) of a heart attack, several years after the story ends; his death is mentioned in the on-screen text at the end of the movie.
  • Dead Man (1995) [William Blake]: Mortally wounded in a shoot-out with Lance Henriksen; he dies after Gary Farmer lays him out in a canoe and sets him adrift for his final journey. 
  • The Brave (1997) [Raphael]: Presumably tortured and killed in front of a camera. The film ends with Johnny getting into an elevator in a warehouse, which leads to a hidden chamber where it has been established that Marlon Brando plans to torture and murder Johnny on camera. 
  • The Astronaut's Wife (1999) [Commander Spencer Armacost]: Electrocuted when Charlize Theron throws an appliance into the water when he's standing on the flooded floor, in an attempt to destroy the alien possessing him (only for said alien to then possess her as he dies).
  • From Hell (2001) [Inspector Fred Abberline]: Dies (off-screen) of an overdose in an opium den; his body is shown afterwards when Robbie Coltrane comes to get him and discovers that he's dead. (Historically inaccurate, the real inspector Abberline died from old age in 1929).
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) [Captain Jack Sparrow]: During one of his imagined sequences of several different "Jack Sparrows", one is shot by another as he is about to eat a peanut. (The real Jack survives the film. obviously.)
  • Transcendence (2014) [Dr. Will Caster]: Dies from radiation poisoning after being shot with radioactive bullets by Lukas Haas. His mind is uploaded into a computer program in order to keep it alive and he later forms a new body via nanotechnology. He is later seemingly destroyed when he allows a virus created by Paul Bettany to be downloaded into him by a dying Rebecca Hall. His body is later seen lying over Rebecca when Paul enters their compound. (it's implied that his mind along with Rebecca's lives on)
