  • Johnny Depp met Amanda in her ambulance along with his band members
  • She was able to watch the show backstage and says it was ‘amazing’
Actor Johnny Depp met his paralyzed fan Amanda Currie ahead of the Hollywood Vampires’ Connecticut concert. Amanda bought advance tickets last year to attend Mr Depp’s concert, but she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer in 2015 while completing her bachelor’s degree in mathematics, reported People Magazine.

Her condition continued to worsen as the concert approached and soon she was completely paralyzed from the neck down. Before the show, the 53-year-old actor and his bandmates, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, met their fan inside her ambulance.

“It was wonderful, amazing and awesome. It was everything I ever wished for and more – the best thing that ever happened to me. He was understanding and sweet and so hot! He is talkative, charming and funny and very down-to-earth. It was very exciting to meet him, a huge rush,” said Amanda.

“The whole experience was magical. I still can’t believe it’s real, even though I have pictures to prove it. I will remember most how caring and sincere he was. He makes you feel special – you can’t top that! He encouraged me to fight this cancer,” she said.

She was able to watch the show backstage and says the performance was “10 out of 10 amazing. The music was really good and Depp’s performance was wonderful.”

During the show, the Hollywood Vampires also dedicated the performance to “their friend Amanda.”
