Actress, Amber Heard, is currently hitting headlines due to the ongoing court case with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Depp is suing his ex-wife for defamation in relation to a 2018 op-ed in The Washington Post that she wrote about being a survivor of domestic violence.
Depp, 58, has brought the $50million (£39million) defamation lawsuit after claiming Heard’s accusations are false. Heard is countersuing.
Heard, who became a mother last year, works as an actress and has appeared in a number of popular films.
What films has Amber Heard been in?
After a series of smaller roles, Heard landed her first starring role in 2006 in All The Boys Love Mandy Lane.
The slasher movie centres around a group of popular high schoolers who invite outsider, Mandy Lane, to a weekend away at a secluded ranch, where a merciless killer stalks them.
The 35-year-old actress gained mainstream recognition after appearing in Never Back Down and Pineapple Express in 2008.
In 2017, the actress became part of the DC Extended Universe and played Atlantean princess Mera in Justice League, before reprising the role in Aquaman in 2018 and Zack Snyder’s Justice League in 2021.
Who did Amber Heard play in Aquaman?
Heard starred in Aquaman as the titular hero’s love interest Mera, and is set to appear in the new DC sequel, which is being directed by James Wan.
The filming wrapped in January and the movie is set for release in March 2023.
Amid the ongoing court battle between Heard and ex-husband Johnny Depp in court, a petition was set up by fans to have Heard removed from the sequel, with the petition having reached over 2.3 million signatures of its 3 million signatures target.
Heard previously slammed the campaign, which was launched in November 2020, to have her removed from Aquaman 2, saying in a statement to Entertainment Weekly: ‘Paid rumours and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality.
‘Only the fans actually made Aquaman and Aquaman 2 happen. I’m excited to get started next year.’
