Johnny Depp revealed that he often finds inspiration for his characters by connecting them to certain songs. For the Mad Hatter, Depp’s old friend Terry Gilliam turned him on indie rockers Sunset Rubdown, passing him an album of theirs which given the time Alice In Wonderland was shot. On the disc Depp found some great songs on there that just defined the Hatter for me perfectly.
