Johnny Depp wins hearts again at Hastings Point

WEDNESDAY 8am:  Movie star Johnny Depp again greeted star-struck fans at Hastings Point last night.

He spent two hours mixing with locals still dressed in his pirate's costume after a full day of filming. 

 

ORIGINAL STORY: A CROWD 'four times the size' of yesterday's fan pack has converged at Hastings Point headland hoping to catch a glimpse of Hollywood star Johnny Depp.

The queue of Pirates of the Caribbean fans stretches about 100m, is four head deep, and almost at full capacity.

Mr Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow, will skip his helicopter trip home to Coomera to sign autographs and take selfies with Tweed residents.
