London, Jan 15 (ANI): Golden Globe winner Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street almost got shelved, when lead star Johnny Depps young daughter took ill.

Filming was halted when 8-year-old Lily-Rose was admitted to a London hospital with the lethal E.coli virus last March.

Seeing his daughters condition, Deep kept a bedside vigil with partner Vanessa Paradis.

The 44-year-old actor said that he was not sure whether or not he would make a comeback in the film industry.

I dont know what anyone elses feelings were at the time whether I was coming back or not. I wasnt sure if Id be able to, The Sun quoted him, as saying.

But Tim Burton, the director, and the production were unbelievably supportive and said, Look, were hitting pause, he added.

Finally in November Lily Rose was cleared off the infection and Depp returned to the set of the film. (ANI)
