I don’t want to leave San Juan yet!! More new Johnny Depp Pictures

Johnny Depp on Motorcycle

Johnny Depp on Motorcycle

I just don’t know where to begin. We have absolutely had the times of our lives! First we arrived on a Saturday Easter weekend, already knew that Johnny Depp and all the filming crew were off till Monday for Easter. So we went to see the sites.. One of the first sites we saw were the line of classic cars for the movie that were setup on the road 1 block away from the apartment we rented..

Old San Juan- Can see  our apt from here!!

Just a amazing place to arrive to..
On Monday before one of the other girls arrived we went down to the location they were going to film at that day, which was where we saw the cars. We walked down the road scouting out locations to try and situate ourselves.. we met some of the PA’s for the film and some of the security people. They were so great! Very friendly and helpful. Before we headed up the hill to our spot Jerry came driving down the hill in an SUV.. No .. no Johnny yet.. When he got out of the SUV I pointed and smiled and said.. “I know you”.. He came right up to us.. I introduced us to him and we spoke for a minute or so while he listened to me explain what our mission was in Puerto Rico, to get the Tee to Johnny after it’s 30,000 miles. Jerry was really sweet and made no promises.. which I wouldn’t ever expect him to..He just explained that IF.. we didn’t get the chance to give it to Johnny myself that Friday before we left.. he would take the packages and give them to him.. I couldn’t and wouldn’t ask for more.. I thanked him insessently and he went off on his merry way.. (well maybe not so merry…lol) Well we proceeded to head up the hill to where we decided to plant ourselves.. not a bad spot..

We watched the whole day with the shoot.. what a thrill! Thankfully some got bored with watching the same thing over and over.
In between shots Johnny would either go and stand with friends or just stand by himself depp in thought(pun aye?)

Relaxing with crew and friends

What a fun day that was for us.. we had a blast. I only wish that all the spectators would listen to the crew because since they didn’t.. they had to re-shoot a lot of that days shootings the next day.. when crowds don’t listen it costs a fortune to fix what they messed up. So if anyone else goes to watch this or any other filming.. just do what the crew says.. they will appreciate it.
So. on with this… I digress.
Next day was filming on the roof of a building a block away from our apartment.. So mostly just saw Johnny coming and going.. Though did get to see him and get a hand shake(it’s not really a shake more like a second hold) between shootings.. I mostly took pics of the set and the street surrounding. What a beautiful city.
We watched for the entire day and then moved to the next shoot which was a block away on the other side.. It’s amazing how they make movies.. just the amount of work and time and money that go into them.
We went to the new shooting site in the next block.. Couldn’t get any pics of Johnny.. everytime I tried the security kept kicking us back. Though we did get a chance to watch it from a window above the street for a few minutes, but we were showing up in the shot.. so we quickly moved..

After leaving that shoot depressed and dejected (no pics and short JOhnny sightings) we headed home after walking down to the bottom of the hill where they had been……. walking on the road that connected that one to the one we were staying on. When we were almost to the end of the block there to the left.. coming up our street is…. yes.. you guessed it.. it was Johnny’s SUV! We got up to it as he was rolling down the window. And there.. he was.. bigger then life with the biggest grin on his face. He said Hi how are you? (or something close to that-both of our minds went into a fuzz state) I think we said fine.. I held up the bag of goodies for him (the Tee and poster and book and various gifts from others on the site) and said.. We have stuff for you! He smiled and said he was sorry and he needed to hurry to get back to the trailer (it was 3am at the time). I said of course you need your sleep (yeah.. I really said that..LOL) He asked if we were coming to the shoot the next day and he would see us then and get the gifts, and thank you.. We said goodnight and he drove off after saying “see you tomorrow”..

This is our street. about 1/4 of the way down.. we met on the corner below

Well then there were the two of us giggling up the hill to the apartment.. and we got almost to our place and looked up.. and guess who was sitting at the corner??
Here is where he was sitting!! Crikey!!

Again… Down came his window.. and he stuck his head out and said something to the effect of Hello again. Christine said.. “we really aren’t stalkers’ you were stuck!!” .. He laughed and commented on that he knew and it was alright… I said “no really we are staying on this street! and I apparently did a 360degree spin and pointed at the apartment and said “shit we passed it!!” with that Johnny started laughing and so did Jerry.. He said it was fine and he would see us tomorrow.. Said goodnight and was laughing as he pulled off!! What an encounter!! One of the most memorable moments in my life and I will NEVER forget it!! Who could ask for more? Certainly not me. We we laughing and giggling for hours after that.. and it happened at 3am.. Running into Johnny Depp on the street and having a short conversation with him!! OMG!! Crazy right? Pinch me..
To see more pics from the week go to our site at InADeppTrance
