While leaving the Virginia courthouse, a fan told Johnny Depp, "You'll always be our Jack Sparrow!" Depp took it as a challenge and slipped into the character.
Sara Hudson from Virginia, who "challenged" Depp, got a reaction, as he told her, in Jack Sparrow's accent, "He's still around somewhere. I see him now and again."
This exchange came on the day Amber Heard's sister, Whitney testified. She showed the jurors photos of broken clothing racks and dishes Depp allegedly left after an argument.
The fans, who have been in front of the courtroom since day one, shouted, "Love you, Johnny," "We love your hair," and other messages of support.
Amber Heard was again spotted entering the courthouse with a cup of coffee.
Depp claims that an op-ed Amber Heard wrote for The Washinton Post cost him the starring role in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. However, his former agent said that the actor brought it on himself:
"Crews don't love sitting around for hours and hours for the star to show up,' Jacobs said. 'People talked...and it made people reluctant to use him."
Johnny Jokes About Making Waffles For Fans
On the 19th day of the defamation trial, the actor came in the black SUV, blasting reggae. As the crowds were cheering Depp, he told the reports that he made "breakfast for all of them this morning. Waffles."
A fan confirmed there were no waffles, calling it a "cute joke."
Depp, 58, earlier joked that he has a "lot of relatives" when he was asked about the numerous fans who would greet him each morning.
Despite being accused of domestic abuse, and even rape, Johnny Depp faces an incredible outpour of public support.
The Oscar-nominated actor strongly denies the allegation, as his lawyers portrayed him as an alleged victim of domestic abuse.
Apart from his suits, the fans noticed that Depp carries two notebooks for doodling while in the courtroom.
Since day one of the trial, he has been showered with gifts as Depp supporters hold signs saying "Justice for Johnny."
Both Depp and Heard are not allowed to give autographs to the fans outside the courtroom.
A Brief Look Into The Second Part Of The Defamation Trial
Heard's op-ed states that she was a "public figure representing domestic abuse."
Depp's sued for defamation for $50 million, while Heard countersued for defamation for $100 million.
The couple married in a private ceremony in their LA home in February 2015, but they were separated after 15 months of marriage.
The divorce came in 2017 after Depp had been already labeled as an (alleged) domestic abuser.
Tracey Jacobs, Depp's former agent, said that the actor was always late during the filming of the fifth Pirates movie and became "reluctant to use him."
The former agent said that in 2016, Depp "terminated everyone in his life, and I was just along for the ride."
Elizabeth Marz, who was friends with the ex-couple, testified that Depp screamed at her and Heard's friend Raquel 'Rocky' Pennington' to "Get your bitch out of here," seemingly referring to his ex-wife.
She also said the actor "scared the sh** out of her" during one of his arguments with Heard.
Marz said that Heard looked disheveled and had injuries on her face.
Pennington testified that she never personally witnessed Depp strike Heard. However, when she saw Amber's face, she took the photos.
Pennington, whose testimony was played to the jury, said that Heard "often had to cover bruises and injuries on her face" with makeup.
Whitney Heard Henriquez is the first witness to testify she witnessed Depp hitting Heard.
She told the jurors that one of Depp's bodyguards intervened and broke up the fight but "by that time Johnny had already grabbed Amber by the hair with one hand and was whacking her repeatedly in the face with the other."
She said she had the nickname "marriage counselor" as she would try to sort out things between the couple.
Whitney acknowledged that "If my sister said that she still wanted to be with Johnny and if I could help with that in any way, I was going to support her. I was going to be there for her."
The Trial Should End This Week
Apart from surprise testimony from Kate Moss, which was allegedly confirmed to numerous publications, there should be no more surprises.
The trial should end on Friday, though it might take time for the jury to make a decision.
Both sides presented chilling evidence and numerous witnesses.
