TBT: Johnny and George Jung, last May 18 on the backstage of the last Hollywood Vampires’ show at Fantasy Springs Casino, in Indio, California.
Throughout this week, we celebrate both releases of
Sweeney Todd’s Soundtrack and Movie, and to celebrate today’s TBT I edited an interview of Johnny with the behind the scenes of his recording session in London, replacing the original audio of “Epiphany” for
my acapella edit that I did specially to show a little bit of Johnny’s powerful voice. 🎶
Robby Müller and the director Jim Jarmusch during the filming of “Dead Man” in 1994!
“Johnny Depp, Robbie Muller, Jim Jarmusch, frolic at lunch time… I just discovered these negs…” – Wrote the photographer Christopher Porter on Instagram.
Behind the scenes, promotional photoshoot and Colleen’s quote for the “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” taken from the official books: “Lights, Camera, Magic! The Making of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and the AMAZING book: “The Archive of Magic The Film Wizardry of
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”.
Ps. If you are a Fantastic Beasts
and/or Harry Potter fan, the official books released last year along the movie are fantastic. But this last one (Archive of Magic) is a MUST HAVE book to have on your shelf.
There’s a LOT of never seen information, photos and even props, such Flamel’s card, Credence’s
certificate of adoption, Newt’s identity card, Tina’s card, Grindelwald’s stylized
bookmark, newspapers, posters, stickers, behind the scenes and interviews.
I bough then some time ago and even though about scanning the photos for a better definition, but this one is so big and heavy I was afraid of damaging it. So I rather chose to take some photos. Depending from where you live, it can little bit expensive, but it’s an awesome book to have it.
Johnny always making the best decisions…
BEST ACTOR EVER!
PS. The first two pictures I took from the AMAZING book: “The Archive of Magic The Film Wizardry of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”.
The last two pictures and Atwood’s interview can be found on the book “Lights, Camera, Magic! The Making of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”. The last one is a totally different concept art, probably from before Johnny’s change for the Grindelwald’s sequence on his prison cell.
Ps. Although on the original post the photo it is described as “before tonight’s show”, the photo was taken last month. Ross Halfin posted photos of the same day with them wearing the same clothes.

Never seen photo of Johnny and Ricki Lake during the filming of Cry-Baby in Baltimore, posted on Instagram.
Since early 90′s Johnny already loved to make this funny face.
Ross Halfin shared more never seen photos of Johnny.
The first three photos were taken at Sandia Casino, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last May 16 on the 5° show of the 2019 Spring Tour.
The second photo was previously released in black and white, last May 21.
The third photo is pretty similar to the black and white version of the photo above it, but more serious.
The fourth photo was taken last May 13 at “The Joint” in Las Vegas on the first day of the 2019 Spring Tour, three different takes of the same place were released in May 16.
“Special 4th of July throwback to one year ago, when I had the privilege of organizing the final tour dinner for the Hollywood Vampires. I was lucky to spend the evening caring for the kindest and most genuine people any event manager could ever hope to work with! Thanks for celebrating this special day with us, and for an out-of-this-world concert at the Jazz Festival – You guys rock! 🤘🧛♂️🦇 Listening to the new Rise album brings back unforgettable memories!” – wrote Kenzie Schmidt on Instagram.
Ps. On the album Rise, Johnny doesn’t play the piano, but is credited for being the one who plays the keyboards on the last track “Congratulations”.
