How Did Jason Momoa Save Amber Heard’s ‘Aquaman’ Job Amid the Depp Trial?

“Aquaman”, Jason Momoa reportedly pleaded with Amber Heard to retain his role in the film’s upcoming sequel.

Former producer and current entertainment industry consultant and expert Katherine Arnold took the stand Monday as Heard’s witness during the ongoing trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp. He said that Heard’s red-haired role was supposed to be his “star is born” moment, but claimed that the actress was nearly cut from “Aquaman 2” due to issues with 58-year-old Johnny Depp.

Arnold went on to say that the only reason Heard kept his job is because Momoa, 42, and director James Wan, 45, were “committed to him” and, according to the Daily Mail, “resolute” to the film.
