Most viewers associate Johnny Depp with the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. But few people are aware of the artist’s professional beginnings. He actually played the lead in the cult classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”
The celebrity had first intended to pursue a career in music, but after meeting Lori Ann Allison, his plans completely changed. Despite the marriage barely lasting two years, according to Shazoo, the woman was able to introduce Johnny Depp to Nicolas Cage.
He showed a lot of interest in the young musician, and the actor’s agent gave the would-be star a part in a horror film. There, Depp portrayed a teen named Glenn.
Although he had a little part in “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” it served as the beginning of his subsequent career. Producers then focused their attention on Depp.
