Hollywood actor Johnny Depp is dreading the prospect of working with screen legend Christopher Lee, because he's so in awe of him.

Lee, 82, has been cast as Depp's father in director Tim Burton's upcoming remake Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, and 41-year-old Depp - who will play confectioner WILLY WONKA - is petrified.

A source says, "Johnny is almost terrified about meeting him, let alone acting opposite him."
