WATCH: Johnny Depp Surprises 9-Year-Old Fan At London School

A 9-year-old aspiring pirate in the southeast London area got the surprise of her life when Johnny Depp showed up at her school this week.

Beatrice Delap, a student at Meridian Primary School, wrote to Captain Jack Sparrow to ask for his aid in staging a mutiny against her teachers.

Depp showed up in Beatrice's classroom virtually unannounced in full "Pirates of the Caribbean" costume.
