John Christopher Depp II (born June 9, 1963) is an actor, producer, and musician from the United States. He has won numerous awards, including a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award, as well as being nominated for three Academy Awards and two BAFTAs.
On Thursday, June 9, Johnny Depp will turn 59. This will be his first birthday since he won the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Last week, after winning the trial, a happy Johnny Depp said that a US jury “gave me my life back” by siding with him in a bitter defamation battle with Amber Heard over mutual allegations of domestic abuse.
After a six-week trial, the jury decided that both Depp and Heard had spread misleading info about each other. However, they were much more likely to side with the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Fans in York sang “Happy Birthday” to Johnny Depp as he signed autographs and posed for selfies on the last night of his UK tour with old friend Jeff Beck.
Outside of York’s Barbican Theatre, hundreds of fans waited to see their favorite star.
