Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp was petrified he wouldn't be able to master a Scottish accent for his latest movie Finding Neverland.

The actor underwent gruelling voice coaching sessions to enable him to play Peter Pan author JM BARRIE in the movie, but the work paid off because he's tipped to win an OSCAR for his convincing performance.

He says, "Musically, rhythmically, I initially couldn't quite get a hold of it. Luckily I found this dialect coach who helped me out."
