Depp Speaks Of 'Great Scare' Following Daughter's Illness

Hollywood heart-throb JOHNNY DEPP has broken his silence over his seven-year-old daughter's terrifying illness two months ago (Mar07), declaring the time was a "great scare" for his family. Lily-Rose was rushed to a London hospital after contracting the E.coli bacteria, which caused her kidneys to shut down. Filming on Depp's latest movie Sweeney Todd was halted so he could keep a vigil at the youngster's bedside with partner Vanessa Paradis. Fortunately, little Lily pulled through and her proud father she is back to her old self already. He says, "It gave us a great scare. What got us through this wasn't the strength of Vanessa or me but our daughter and her incredible ability to make us feel OK even though she was very unwell. She was super-strong. "It was a very bumpy patch but she has come through it beautifully and unscathed and she is now as healthy as she always was. She is wonderful. "It was a reminder to us of how to breathe, walk, talk, think and surround ourselves with people we love."
