Surely the only think more surprising than realising the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is still going would be discovering you'd unknowingly featured in one of the swashbuckling rum-drenched films.

This was the experience of British actor and icon Bill Nighy who has admitted to Empire that he didn't realise he had made an appearance in fifth chapter, "Salazar's Revenge" or "Dead Men Tell No Tales" as it's called in America, presumably so Trump can spell it on his Christmas list.

Nighy did have a role in Pirate of the Caribbean romps Dead Man's Chest and At World's End, where he played Davy Jones, the captain of a ghost ship with the name of a Slough carpenter. But he wasn't involved in the latest release, despite his credits being included at the close of the film.

"I didn't know anything about it until about a week ago," he told Empire recalling the incident where his taxi driver informed him.

"The cab driver said, 'Are you doing the next one?' I said, 'No. I didn't know there was a next one.' He said, 'Well, you were in the last one'. I said, 'No I wasn't'. He said, 'Yes, you were'. So that's all I know. You probably know more than I do."

Bill Nighy is almost unrecognisable as Davy Jones, the captain with an octopus for a jawline

What makes the appearance stranger yet is that old Davy Jones was meant to have popped his clogs in the third film, undoubtedly causing confusing amongst avid Pirates fans out there.

Empire reports that, "this new post-credits sting in the fifth film appears to set up his return in future instalments" and Nighy told the magazine he's love to appear in another Pirates movie.

Perhaps he can return for the 35th chapter.
