Johnny Depp Wasn’t Supposed To Star in the Movie That Launched His Career

Johnny Depp’s first movie role was A Nightmare on Elm Street.
It is a role he almost did not get.
Wes Craven wanted Charlie Sheen but he wanted $3,000 a week which was out of the budget.
It was Wes’ 14 year old daughter and her friend seeing a picture of Johnny Depp that got him the role.
The girls thought he was ‘cute.’ When Johnny auditioned for the role Wes thought he looked like he needed a bath.
He decided to trust the instincts of the demographic he was catering to and as they say-the rest is history!
