Stars Discovered by Chance

Johnny Depp

Depp owes his career to boredom. With nothing better to do, he tagged along with a friend named Jackie Earle Haley on an audition for a horror movie called “Nightmare on Elm Street.” To his surprise, and his friend’s dismay, director Wes Craven spotted Depp in the background and asked him to read for the part of the protagonist’s boyfriend. He got the part and, one movie murder later (courtesy of Freddy Krueger), was one his way to becoming a Hollywood A-lister.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
