The last thing children on a ward at the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane expected to see was Captain Jack Sparrow stagger down the corridor with Scrum in tow.

But stagger in the pair did, when  Johnny Depp and Stephen Graham made a surprise visit as two confused pirates facing a sea of shocked and ecstatic children.

The actors flew from the Gold Coast via helicopter in between filming  for Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales. Their appearance was filmed for the Juiced TV show, which is made for children in hospitals, and the reactions spoke volumes.

It isn’t the first time Captain Jack Sparrow has made an appearance in children’s hospitals, according to franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Bruckheimer told an audience in 2013: “He knows he is a very fortunate person and he wants to give back."
