In a recent development in the ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Depp has reportedly admitted that he did, in fact, advocate for Heard to get the role of Mera in the Warner Bros. box office hit Aquaman.
The news comes after Heard testified in court that she had auditioned and earned the role of Mera with no intercession from Depp. In response, Depp reportedly told the court that he had reached out to studio officials to advocate for Heard getting the part.
Depp and Heard have been embroiled in a legal battle since 2018, when Heard filed for a restraining order against Depp, accusing him of domestic abuse. Depp has denied the allegations and is suing Heard for defamation.
The latest revelation from Depp has cast a new light on the case, as it appears to contradict Heard’s testimony that she earned the role of Mera without any help from Depp.
It remains to be seen how this new information will affect the ongoing legal battle between Depp and Heard. However, it does seem to suggest that Depp did, in fact, play a role in Heard getting the role of Mera.
The case is set to continue in court on 26 May 2022, when both parties will present their arguments and evidence. Until then, the public will have to wait and see how this latest development affects the case.
