Depp, who has been known to visit hospitals around the world dressed as his pirate alter ego, stopped by BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, Monday to bring smiles to the patients and their families.

He spent more than 5 ½ hours meeting with kids from the oncology, general pediatrics and neurology areas.

The starstruck children and parents said that he never broke character and spent time making each child feel special.

The hospital treats 86,000 children each year and is the province’s only full-service acute care pediatric hospital.
