Discussing the process of making the character his without contrasting it with what Johnny Depp has already done with it, the actor argued, “The only approach I can take is to bridge the gap between what he’s done has to connect and what I’m going to do and then we’ll see what lands. ‘
This interview comes a few months after Johnny Depp announced on his IG account that Warner Bros. asked him to finish the third episode in the Fantastic Beasts series.
He relented, but since then his loyal supporters have signed petitions and campaigned for justice as all of this is the result of his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard.
As you will recall, the actress accused Johnny of domestic abuse years ago, only to bring indisputable evidence that he was the real victim.
Even so, Johnny Depp still lost the case to The Sun, a UK-based publication that labeled him a “bully” with no evidence.
