Dame Judi Dench invited for cameo role in 'Pirates' 4
Judi Dench just couldnât resist the opportunity of a risque romp with Johnny Depp. Director Rob Marshall asked her if sheâd shoot a cameo role in On Stranger Tides, the fourth episode of the Pirates Of The Caribbean adventure.
For starters, Judi had fun working with Marshall on the movie musical Nine â and she and Depp have screen history. They were in the movie ÂChocolat ten years ago, so there was a sense of anniversary in the air.
On Stranger Tides, which stars Depp, Penelope Cruz (also a Nine alumna) and Geoffrey Rush, starts with a chase sequence â described as a bit like Charlie Chaplin getting away from the Keystone Kops â involving Deppâs character Captain Jack Sparrow.
Capân Jack escapes into a carriage belonging to a noblewoman, played by Judi. As he ravishes her, he Âmanages to rob her. Judi will have just a minute or two on screen, if that, but she enjoys hijinks and Iâm told she and Depp were in fits of giggles most of the time.
Judi has since shot scenes for My Week With Marilyn, opposite Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne and ÂKenneth Branagh, and is now in India filming John Maddenâs movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with ÂMaggie Smith.
