"I still do training, I’ll do choreography, I do a lot of sword choreography, I work on the Conan O’Brien show when they have sketches, where there are some stunts in the sketches, I’m obviously still keeping busy but not obviously like I used to be."

Still, Angelotti has maintained a positive outlook at the end of the day.

Tony Angelotti Reveals The One Time He Saw Johnny Get Angry On Set

When speaking to , Angelotti revealed the one time he saw Depp get angry while on set. It was during the filming of a fight scene between him and Orlando Bloom.

"I do remember one time where I saw him extremely angry," Angelotti explained. "And it was when we were filming the blacksmith forge fight, and I was fighting Orlando Bloom and Johnny’s sitting over by the camera watching and Orlando – the fights, they’ll get really intense and fast."

He added, "And Orlando I think got lost at one point, and went to another direction and I ducked back and the tip of his blade caught right near my eyebrow. I was okay, it was literally like a nick. A hair closer would have left at a decent mark."

According to Angelotti, the director was one he had not previously worked with. This director wanted to keep filming rather than call a medic.

"And then all of a sudden, Johnny got up out of his chair, walked right over to this guy and said, “We’re not doing a thing until he gets looked at by the medic."

Angelotti added, "And you could have heard a pin drop on that set. And it was like, 'Thank you, Johnny!' And of course, the medic was there in a split second and it was fine. That’s the rare occasion that I saw him, he blew a gasket."

Angelotti and Depp had a very close friendship. The actor even commissioned Neil Lane, jeweler to the stars, to create a custom replica of the Ring of Thieves for Angelotti.

"I would have beautiful wine with him at the end of the night in his trailer, he would invite me in a couple times," Angelotti recalled. "I can remember having beautiful Bordeaux and just sort of recapping the day and just talking about the stunts and things to come."
