Announcing his addition to the cast of Harry Potter spinoffs, Johnny Depp confirms he will dress like a wizard’s apprentice for at least the next 10 years of his life.

Depp, a leading proponent of reverse method acting, whereby the actor maintains residual elements of characterisation for years to come, will finally shake off the remnants of Captain Jack Sparrow, some 13 years after he mastered the role. 

A source from Depp’s entourage has told fans to expect earrings, eyeliner and waistcoats to be replaced by capes, pointed hats and a spell book tucked beneath his arm as he graces the red carpets and chat show sofas over the coming years.

Insiders on the set of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them have also revealed that he has been working to extricate himself from the rasping pirate drawl to which fans have become so accustomed and is honing the voice of a 12-year-old English boy.
