London nights with friends…

Johnny through the lens of Sarah M. Lee last week.

Behind the scenes: Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald during an unreleased scene.

On the blu-ray edition of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” it’s revealed that during the Grindelwald speech at the amphitheater, he has a small interaction with one of his followers on the audience which was not released on the movie:

– Why were we given this strange, strange gift? Why us? Why not them?

– Because they’re scum! 

While the other followers applaud, Grindelwald gestures at the crowd to settle, points to the follower who shouted and says:

– We do not use those words here, friend.

Also during an interview, the director David Yates, revealed that when the first exhibitions of the unfinished version was exhibited for a selected public, he was caught by surprise because instead of the people disapprove Grindelwald’s ideals, they identified with him and his speech, saying: “Yeah! I think he’s got a point.”

Behind the Scenes: Johnny, Dawn French and Emma Chambers during the filming of the special episode “Celebrity Party” for the

British sitcom “The Vicar of Dibley", 20 years ago, today March 12.

“ –  Johnny Depp!? In our village!? Johnny ‘please-use-your-scissorhands-to-snip-my-pants-off-immediately’ Depp?!”  – 


20 years ago, today (March 12), the
episode “Celebrity Party” from the British sitcom, “The Vicar of Dibley” was aired on the “BBC One” show in UK. The 14 minutes episode is a short
special episode to celebrate the “Red Nose Day” and Johnny makes a small cameo
playing himself.

> Synopsis:
A film crew writes to the local Council to
ask if they can film some of their latest movie in the village, but after the
last production filmed there, blew the electrics, David, the Head of the
Council wants to decline the request. However, when it’s revealed that Johnny
Depp is the star, the rest of the council cannot vote ‘yes’ fast enough! As a
fan of Johnny, Geraldine decides to invite him
personally with a letter to a party at her house for a chat and meeting with some of
the villagers. Johnny accepts the invitation, but also
asks if he could bring some friends with whom he was planning on going out with that
evening. Geraldine agrees, but not everything goes well. As soon as the party
started the power goes out and they have to enjoy the party and meet Johnny’s
friends (such as Sean Connery, Madonna, the Duchess of York and Robin Cook) in
the dark.

> Curiosities:

* Johnny’s scenes were
filmed on a set in London, sometime while he was filming “Sleepy Hollow”. 

Johnny appears only for a little bit more than a minute. Later on the party we can only hear his voice.

we do not rise up and take our rightful place in the world.”

This the first part of Johnny’s scenes as Chick Purchase in “London Fields” (2013).
If you haven’t watched this movie, enjoy.

Johnny as Chick Purchase in “London Fields” (2013)

Ps: Even though Johnny makes an uncredited cameo, he is quite an important character in the story and appears for a little bit more than 7 minutes in 6 different scenes.

Ps 2: STAY TUNED! I’m planning to make two videos with all his appearances, BUT... Amber appears a lot in the final two scenes. One is in the trailer, showing when they meet for the first time, but in the final scenes they are together and even has a kiss scenes (eww). If you guys want, I’ll make my best editing, but it won’t be all of his scenes…
