Johnny Depp Los Angeles, Sep 2 (IANS) Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have worked together on eight films, and that’s because the filmmaker is in awe of Depp’s ability as a character actor.

Some of their movies together include “Edward Scissorhands”, “Ed Wood” and “Sweeney Todd”. Burton says its great filming with the 49-year-old actor as he always brings something different to his roles, reports

“It’s enjoyable working with him. I like actors that like to become characters. Some actors make a career out of being themselves in a movie. But I’ve always enjoyed those real character actors that just like to become different creatures, and he’s that way,” Burton said about Depp.

“In ‘Scissorhands’, he didn’t speak. On ‘Ed Wood’, he didn’t shut up! On ‘Sweeney Todd’ he sings. He’s always trying something different on every movie. It’s always a new territory with him,” he added.
