Moments after fans were seen chasing down the real Depp's limo, after being escorted from the Ryerson theatre, an impersonator dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow, from "Pirates of the Caribbean" livened up the crowds and let the public take photos with him.
Prior, screams erupted from the streets when the actual Depp was spotted from the moving vehicle. He waved goodbye to fans from the limo's window.
His new film, "West of Memphis," is a documentary about three young men who were convicted of killing three boy scouts in 1993 and served 18 years in prison. The men were freed last year. Depp was said to be a long time supporter of a re-trial for the accused.
The third day of the festival saw even more Hollywood celebrities, including the cast of "Perks of Being a Wallflower," starring Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Paul Rudd, Dylan McDermott, Logan Lerman, Erza Miller and Melanie Lynskey, who all walked the red carpet at the Ryerson theatre.
It was also the gala world premiere of "Silver Linings Playbook," which brought stars Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Tucker, Jacki Weaver and Julia Stiles to Roy Thomson Hall.
Selena Gomez, Adam Sandler, and the rest of the cast from the animated flick "Hotel Transylvania," were in a press conference.
The festival runs until Sept. 16, this year, with many more celebrities to appear.
