Amber Heard on Diminished Aquaman 2 Role
Heard revealed that her role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was diminished from what it once was. In the most recent court day of the defamation case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, via Sky Newsand transcribed by u/BatmanNewsChris on Reddit, Heard revealed that she was involved in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Heard told the court that while she played Mera, it was a "very pared-down version" of the role she was intended to play. Despite her intent to force her into the action, she said she was given several versions of the script, which progressively resulted in many of her actions:
"Have you taken part in Aquaman 2?" a legal says.
Heard: I have fought really hard to stay in the film. They didn''t want to include me in the film.
"Were you eventually able to film in Aquaman 2?" a lawyer says
Yes, the role of a very pared down version of this.
"What if something was changed in the script?" says the lawyer.
Heard: I was given a script. Then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving spoilers away. Two characters were basically taking a bunch out of my role.
