Johnny Depp’s Films Stunts For His New Movie, The Lone Ranger

Johnny Depp shot a stunt scene in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Here you can see him dressed in full costume as the character Tonto.

The actor was seen leaping from train to train as he played the Native American spirit warrior in the new Lone Ranger film.

Depp, 47, appeared nonchalant as he performed the stunt, which appeared to show him sprinting to a precarious edge before jumping off.

Lone Ranger will follow the adventures of a masked ex-Texas Ranger who is aided by his Native American companion Tonto to fight injustice in the American Old West.

The Lone Ranger first appeared in 1933 in a wildly popular radio show which spawned an equally popular television show that ran from 1949 to 1957, as well as comic books and movies.

Depp has previously revealed he has Native American heritage.

He said: ‘My great-grandmother was quite a bit of Native American, she grew up Cherokee or maybe Creek Indian. Makes sense in terms of coming from Kentucky, which is rife with Cherokee and Creek.

After he was cast as Tonto – a fictional member of the Comanche Nation, he was officially asked to become a member of the real-life tribe of the same name.

Tension mounts: Johnny spotted keenly awaiting instruction

President of Americans for Indian Opportunity LaDonna Harris said: ‘Johnny is reprising the historic role of Tonto, and it seemed like a natural fit to officially welcome him into our Comanche family and we were honoured that he so enthusiastically agreed.’

Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice.

The Lone Ranger first appeared in a radio show in 1933, before being transferred to the black and white TV show in 1949, starring Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto.
