The filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies. I accept that there will be those who are not satisfied with our choice of actor in the title role. However, conscience isn’t governable by committee. Within the fictional world and outside it, we all have to do what we believe to be the right thing.
Oooh, I wonder what this means for JK Rowling esp. with relation to recent events. Also worth noting that 2 of Depp's associates have recently admitted that Amber Heard's allegations are true.
