Johnny Depp of Owensboro was named America’s Favorite Actor in a recent Harris Poll. See links below for dozens of other awards and nominations.
The entire state of Kentucky is rightfully proud of their current celebrity’s accomplishments in the theater and film arts.
He has taken character acting to star status as no one else has done since Lon Chaney, The Man of 1,000 Faces and father of The Werewolf’s Lon Chaney Jr.
Chaney’s Phantom of the Opera is still hideously good after nearly 100 years, but Johnny Depp’s Demon Barber is just as good. Jack Sparrow and Mad Hatter will never be forgotten, either. Johnny Depp could follow William Shatner’s example of acting vigorously into his 80s.
