Johnny Depp to be honored by Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild

Johnny Depp is set to receive the first-ever Distinguished Artisan Award from the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star will be honored with the accolade on 15 February (14) in Los Angeles, California.


Guild President Susan Cabral-Ebert praises the actor for his eagerness to transform his image with the help of Hollywood's make-up and hair whizzes.


A statement issued by Cabral-Ebert reads: "Johnny Depp is a wonderful selection to receive our first Distinguished Artisan Award. He, probably more than any other actor working today, uses the skills of our members to delineate his characters.


"Depp has constantly been an outstanding supporter of our crafts, ultimately respectful and appreciative of our members’ abilities and generous with his creative collaboration. A great artist himself, he allows others to shine."


The award will be presented to Depp by his longtime make-up artist Joel Harlow, an Oscar winner who has worked with the actor on films including Pirates of the Caribbean, Dark Shadows, The Rum Diary, The Lone Ranger, and the upcoming movie musical, Into the Woods.
