Actor Johnny Depp has shocked pupils at a London school by answering a fan letter and visiting them dressed as his character from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series.

Depp responded after 9-year-old Beatrice Delap sent a letter pleading for help in leading a mutiny against teachers at Meridian Primary School in Greenwich, a district in southeastern London.

The school said Friday that Depp performed pirate songs and dances for the pupils during the visit with four other cast members on Wednesday.

Depp, 47, is currently filming "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" at Greenwich's Old Naval College, a 17th-century seafaring center.

Acting head teacher Jo Graham said pupils were thrilled at the visit, and have abandoned plans for a mutiny.
