In the 1990 Tim Burton movie Edward Scissorhands, Johnny Depp plays strange blade-fingered man Edward. It’s an amazing, expressive performance, but Depp actually didn’t have many lines to learn.

Why? Because in this film Edward Scissorhands utters only 169 words.

Edward Scissorhands is showing tonight – Tuesday 3rd July – on Film 4 at 6.45pm
