Based in Crawley, West Sussex, Simon Newton has portrayed Disney legend Captain Jack Sparrow (as played by Hollywood film star Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) at events across England and the World for many years as well as being a photo double for Johnny Depp himself in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. He has dedicated his time to perfect the look, mannerisms and the outfits as worn by the swashbuckling star, and of course the unique voice, and sharp wit! At many events visitors often walk away convinced they have met Johnny Depp.
Simon has built up a reputation of being not only a perfect Captain Jack Sparrow impersonator, but also has the professional attitude and reliability you'd expect from a top class entertainer.
Trying to organise some sort of high toned and fancy to-do, eh? I know just the pirate for the job. Savvy?
Simon is available for a whole host of events from corporate parties, themed events, PR stunts, Bar launches to private parties for the old and young alike. He is a full member of Equity and is covered by public liability insurance for up to £10,000,000.

He has appeared at events all over the UK for some of the most well known companies in the country including, most recently Alton Towers, Admiral Insurance, BT, Cineworld, Cola Cola and DSGi (Dixons Group), Time Warner as well as appearing in HEAT magazine.
