Johnny Depp shows that he can be a real-life hero. Reportedly, he was contacted by his Hampshire fan family who needs his help. Touched by her fan’s story, Depp agreed to help a British girl Sophie Wilkinson who has been in a coma for five months.
Depp agreed to record a voice message for his teenager fan. His recorded voice is expected will wake the fan up and bring her out from coma. He also agreed to visit the girl at Southampton General Hospital.
Sophie’s father Andrew Wilkinson was really happy when his daughter’s idol agreed to give his time to help. Andrew said,
“We are looking for the key to wake her up, so we wrote to Johnny and he said he would do the recording in the voice of (his Pirates of the Caribbean character) Jack Sparrow.”
He further explained, “Only this week Sophie moved her right leg, which she has never done before. When we got home my wife and I were jumping for joy!”
Sophie is known as a girl who dreamed teaching AIDS orphans in Africa before going to university. Sophie has been in a coma since the Peugeot 106 car where she was a passenger smashed into an 18-tonne lorry. Since her crash on October 2007, the 17-year-old girl has undergone life operations.
