The actor took to Instagram to thank fans for their support and loyalty, adding that he felt ‘humbled and moved’ by the ‘many messages of love and concern’ over the last few days.’
‘Secondly, I wish to let you know what I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. From my role as Grindel in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request,’ Depp explained.
‘Finally, I wish to say this,’ he added. ‘The surreal judgment of the court in the UK will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.
‘My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.’
