Jessica Marr Henderson had an incredible surprise during a recent stay in hospital.
The Strood Academy pupil was in Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, when she was visited by Hollywood actor Johnny Depp.
Jessica, 12, was stunned to find the film star, in full costume as his Pirates of the Caribbean character Captain Jack Sparrow, by her bedside.
He also gave Jessica, who was having treatment for a rare condition called juvenile idiopathic arthritis, a £50 voucher for Hamleys toy shop.
Her mum Leahanne said: “We had no idea and Jessica’s face was a picture. He sat down and spoke to her, all in character. He was so lovely.
“She was so excited, she’s still in shock that Johnny Depp had come to visit her.”
Depp regularly visits the hospital as a thank-you for the life-saving treatment his daughter Lily-Rose received in 2007.
