Five Fun Facts about Edward Scissorhands
- The character of Edward Scissorhands was taken from a drawing Tim Burton sketched as a teenager.
“Tim had done a drawing when he was in high school and he told me about it as we were searching for something to work on together, and I said, ‘Stop right there, I know exactly what to do with this.'”…..”That’s all Tim’s name.”—Caroline Thompson, screenwriter for Edward Scissorhands
- It took 3 hours and 45 minutes to transform Depp into Edward Scissorhands.
For four months Depp spent two hours a day in make-up, to have his eyebrows covered and scars applied… to his ghostly face. It took another 45 minutes to sew Depp into his black latex bodysuit … Then a hairdresser took a final hour to create Edward’s tousled mane.
- Edward’s haircut was inspired.
Edward Scissorhand’s hairstyle is based on Robert Smith’s from The Cure
- Filming in Tampa, Florida was unbearably hot but Johnny Depp refused any cooling agents because he wanted to remain in character.
“There was Johnny in his leather suit, refusing the cooling agent, and soldiering around with his gigantic scissors. It was really amazing, and I applaud him for the devotion that he showed.”  — Caroline Thompson
- Johnny Depp had a backup plan for Edward Scissorhands
In an interview published weeks after Scissorhands’ release…He told the New York Times that he had kept the costume – just in case: “I still have the leather suit, and the hands. At least I have something to fall back on. If things don’t work out, in a couple of years I may be doing birthday parties at McDonald’s – as Edward. You know, 200 bucks a party.”
