How cute! Can Jack Sparrow rescue me from the corporate marauders I work for?

What an amazing surprise for the school, I certainly think Mr Depp should come and entertain the patients on my hospital ward ;) I'd make him a cup of tea!

He's been to Great Ormond Street Hosp a couple of times, again as Jack, I think his daughter was treated there.

Do you suppose if he went to GOS Hosp as James Barrie anyone would realize who the character was?

Back to the topic: what a great guy!

Probably not at Great Ormond Street as J M Barrie wouldn't be such an exciting character as Capt Jack to a child, unless he was pretending to be Peter Pan. :D Edward Scissorhands might go down well, though! :D
