He said: “I did say to (producer) Jerry Bruckheimer, I think this is the end for Barbossa. (His death) expanded the world dramatically of the genre of a tentpole blockbuster, to lose an important character is kind of good. It all made sense and didn’t feel like an easy dramatic device.”

In the film, Barbossa sacrifices himself for his daughter Carina, played by Kaya Scodelario.
