Hector Barbossa

Captain Hector Barbossa is a fictional character in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, portrayed by Australian actor Geoffrey Rush. Barbossa appears in all films of the series. Starting out as a villainous undead pirate in The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), the character dies at the end of the film. However, he is revealed to have been brought back to life at the end of Dead Man's Chest (2006), and serves as a protagonist and Pirate Lord in At World's End (2007), a privateer with the Royal Navy in On Stranger Tides (2012), and finally as the rich and influential leader of his own pirate fleet in Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017). Throughout the series, the character has been conceptualized as a "dark trickster" and counterpart to protagonist Jack Sparrow.

Barbossa relaxing on the Black Pearl. The green apple, can be seen in the foreground. Barbossa's fixation on the fruit, a symbol of envy, reflects the essence of his character's jealously and betrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow. Ultimately, this fervent desire would render him and his crew a band of liminal undead, and doom him in the end, as he perished (for a time) in pursuit of his equally desperate desire to free himself of the Aztec blood curse.
