The Australian actor, Geoffrey Rush has revealed that he will not appear in future Pirates Of The Caribbean sequels after playing Captain Hector Barbossa for 14 years. “I did say to (producer) Jerry Bruckheimer, ‘I think this is the end for Barbossa,’” Rush told website TooFab. “
“I think the notion of the selfless sacrifice, you’d cheapen that if you suddenly went, ‘Well, we’ll bring him back because we had the scorecards filled out and everyone said they liked Barbossa,” he said.
Jerry Bruckheimer speaking about Geoffrey Rush said:
“You never know with us. We can always bring characters back when we love them and we love him,”
