Johnny Depp to star in Kate/Richard says goodbye sequel, making it a trilogy
Royal Roads University, Victoria, BC – On set: Richard Says Goodbye.
‘The next set of photos shows the conversation between Johnny Depp, his bodyguard, personal assistant and I. The focus wasn’t just on JD alone, it was a complete group effort. Right from the start, I put it out there that I was a “deer in the headlight” then raised my hands and showed they were shaking. The genuinely conscientious man that JD is, immediately said, “Oh good, so am I”, and raised his hands shaking. I laughed, feeling far more at ease and thanked him for that, as he gave me a hug. We conversed about a few things ranging from ‘cross dressing’ (lol) to BC Children’s Hospital (which we both did) and fundraising. When the questions arouse about what I did, I had 4 hard copy photos at hand, (reason: I didn’t want to rely on my cell, wasting time searching for reference shots). One of the photos was of me as Tonto, hoping I could use this as an icebreaker. I told JD this was a challenging costume to battle, for he was shirtless, “Yes I was”, he said. (Can’t believe what I did next) but I then grabbed my chest and said, “going topless was a bit of an issue for me for these two tend to get in the way you know”. He broke out laughing and said, “I’m sure they do”, which led us to talk about his role in Ed Wood. As things flowed, I completely forgot I was talking to a very famous celebrity. He was so natural, so himself. If you’re wondering if I was in character at any time? No. I wasn’t there to convince JD what I could or could not do…. I relished the one on one time with someone who has inspired me in so many ways besides his characters. In fact, I forgot I was in costume all together, to be honest. 😀 (More photos to come).’
