The list of Pirates of the Caribbean cast members is a list of actors who voiced or portrayed characters appearing in the various media (particularly the film series) based on Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. The films star Johnny Depp in his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow, followed by franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack's longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs. Alongside Depp, Orlando Bloom (Will Turner) and Keira Knightley (Elizabeth Swann) appeared as starring roles until their characters' stories had concluded with a post-credit sequence in the third film; however, both Bloom and Knightley will have cameo appearances in the fifth film.
Complementing them onscreen were Stellan Skarsgård (Bootstrap Bill Turner), Bill Nighy (Davy Jones), Chow Yun-Fat (Sao Feng), Penélope Cruz (Angelica), Ian McShane (Blackbeard), Javier Bardem (Captain Salazar), Jack Davenport (James Norrington), Jonathan Pryce (Governor Weatherby Swann), Lee Arenberg (Pintel), Mackenzie Crook (Ragetti), Brenton Thwaites (Henry Turner), Kaya Scodelario (Carina Smyth), Tom Hollander (Cutler Beckett), Naomie Harris (Tia Dalma), David Bailie (Cotton), Martin Klebba (Marty), Sam Claflin (Philip Swift), Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey (Syrena), Greg Ellis (Theodore Groves), Vanessa Branch (Giselle) and Lauren Maher (Scarlett), among others.
Three actors have appeared as the same character in all four films of the franchise, and another three appeared as the same character in the short film, Tales of the Code: Wedlocked, while four reprised their roles in revamped versions of the original ride. A few of the actors were given the opportunity to portray characters from the ride.
The list is sorted by film and character, as some characters have been portrayed by multiple actors.
