Johnny Depp loves Captain Jack Sparrow role

London: Johnny Depp is in love with his alter-ego Captain Jack Sparrow in the `Pirates of the Caribbean` movies as the quirky character has no boundaries.

The 47-year-old actor, who will reprise his role as the swashbuckling hero in `On Stranger Tides`, the fourth film in the `Pirates` franchise, relishes playing it as there is no limit to his antics, Contactmusic reported.

"You can do whatever you want, essentially. He`s a free spirit," said Depp.

However, the actor accepts that his undying love for the character can create problems as he is never ready to let go and will perform a scene multiple times.

"The problem is with me is that I enjoy every scene to the point where the director is saying, `Do you have his yet, are you done?`," said the actor.

Depp`s love for the onscreen character is so evident that he made a surprise appearance as Jack Sparrow at a London school following a request by a schoolgirl who wrote a letter to him.

He also dressed up as the pirate for other charity events including a visit to London`s Great Ormond Street Hospital.
