Sidney Stanhope realized a dream thanks to his uncle


That Doug Stanhope is one of Johnny’s best-friends is known and that he follows him wherever he goes is also known. But this time Stanhope did something different: he decided to spend with his companion Amy “Bingo” Bingaman some time with Johnny during the filming of Pirates Dead Men Tell No Tales, presenting at the same time the most dreaming moment to his niece for her  19th years: a wonderful trip to Australia for meeting Jack Sparrow in person.

Lucky girl.

For sure the name of the girl says all: Sidney although the capital of Australia is Sydney with an “y”there are similarities in this name.

If the girl hadn’t never visited Australia yet, for sure maybe his parents have been inspired 19 years ago by this distant, fascinating continent plenty of wonderful animals, flowers and plants and with a stunning, paradisiacal Ocean.

Stanhope prepared this surprise-trip for his niece with all the possible attention.

In the while, the girl once afforded in Bisbee, Arizona, knew just that she would have spent two weeks with this joyous uncle. Later the idea of this Australian trip.

Doug Stanhope told on his Facebook page where he posted all these pictures as well: “My niece thinks we’re going to see kangaroos, and dressing up to take formal photos with them. Plausible“.

Later once on set of Pirates he clarified, writing on Facebook: “Did I say birthday with a kangaroo, my niece? Ooops. I meant week with Johnny Depp…

The family spent wonderful days with Johnny on set and also at the estate Coomera created by Mick Doohan and rented by Johnny Depp.

The latest post by Stanhope says: “Sunrise from our balcony! What a great trip with our niece, Sidney! Having dinner at Johnny’s house tonight. I’ll do my best to put up more pics, but they have to be approved by Johnny’s people. Big thanks to the Depp’s for making this happen! So fun!“.

It was July 1.
