Actor Johnny Depp Meets Navajo President Ben Shelly on Set

Actor Johnny Depp, who will play Tonto in the upcoming film version of The Lone Ranger, has begun filming in Monument Valley and last week was visited on set by Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and Vice President Rex Lee Jim.

Gayle Dine' Chacon, Surgeon General of the Navajo Nation, spoke with Depp at length, particularly about preventing youth suicide on the reservation, and admitted to being "star struck." "He is a very charming man, very gracious and very concerned as well," she said, according to a People.com story. "He probably spent a good hour with us. Everybody else left the set, but he was still there. … You feel that you are the only one there – that he's just focusing on you."
