BIOGRAPHY

Johnny Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky to Betty Sue Palmer, a waitress, and John Christopher Depp, Sr, a civil engineer. He has one brother, Danny, and two sisters, Christie and Debbie. Christie is also his personnel manager. Depp had a difficult childhood after his parents divorced in 1978. He has seven or eight self inflicted scars on his body while he was growing up. He calls them his diary-jottings! After a year of his parents divorce, Depp dropped out of school and went on to fulfil his dreams of being a musician. He joined the KIDS band that was popular in the local area. The band broke before singing any deal. He then joined Rock City Angels` band and co-wrote their song “Mary”. Depp married Lori Anne Allison in 1983, who introduced him to Nicolas Cage. Depp had done many odd jobs to make ends meet, before being recommended an acting career by Cage. Depp landed up with the role of heroine`s boyfriend and one of Freddy`s victims in the movie ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ in 1984. After this there was no looking back for him.
