Not only is Simon lucky enough to be able to pass for Johnny Depp in looks, but he is also the same size as the Hollywood star from his height down to his hand size. So when you're watching the film you never know when you might be catching a glimpse of Simon.
Simon has spent many thousands of pounds and countless months of painstaking research to make sure that every aspect of his costumes are as close to the originals as possible - not only the right fabrics, designs and details, but making those look suitably aged and broken down. Would you really want to hire someone who is wearing something you can just buy from a fancy dress shop?
Being such a unique character, you often see impersonators come up with a very over the top, caracature-like "Captain Jack". Simon makes his characterisation as real to life as possible, as if Johnny Depp has walked off the film set.
