In 1990, after numerous roles in teen films, the beginnings of a long working relationship and friendship with director Tim Burton came about when he portrayed the title role in Edward Scissorhands.

He continued to gain critical acclaim and increasing popularity by appearing in many features before rejoining with Burton in the lead role of Ed Wood.
In 1997, Johnny played the undercover FBI agent in the factual based film, Donnie Brasco, opposite Al Pacino; in 1998 he appeared in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and then in 1999 he appeared in the Sci-fi horror, The Astronaut's Wife. The same year, he teamed up once more with Burton in Sleepy Hollow, brilliantly portraying Ichabod Crane.
Johnny has played many characters in his career including another factually based character, Inspector Fred Abberline in From Hell (2001). He stole the show from screen greats such as Antonio Banderas in the finale to Robert Rodriguez's Mariachi trilogy Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) the same year as the marvellous family blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, playing a character that only the likes of Johnny could pull off... Captain Jack Sparrow.
Apart from his on-screen life, Johnny has dated several female celebrities off-screen. He was married to Lori Anderson in 1983 but they divorced in 1985. Currently (2009) Johnny is living with French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis with whom he has two children; a daughter, Lily-Rose Melody Depp, born May 27, 1999 and a son, John Christopher Depp IV, born on April 10, 2002.
