Amber Heard is an American actress and model, who first appeared on screen with Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary. The Rum Diary was released in 2011, but the two actors met and got acquainted in 2009 on the set of the film.
Their relationship was not confirmed until 2012, when Depp announced his breakup with Vanessa Paradis.
The romantic pair are set to appear next in the thriller London Fields, which Heard will be the star of. Depp is only set to make a cameo appearance, and the news that he would be joining the project was just announced yesterday.
Like the first time they appeared together, this film is also based on a book, this one being based off of a darkly comic crime novel by Martin Amis.
In addition to Heard and Depp, the film has a supporting cast made up of Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, Cara Delevingne, and Theo James. The film is directed by Matthew Cullen, marking his directorial debut, and it is set to be released next year.

The film started filming in London in September. The plot will follow a terminally-ill American writer named Pat (Thornton), who has been suffering from writer’s block, and living in London. After entering a shady pub, he meets a promiscuous psychic named Nicolas Six (Heard), who decides to plot a murder and has her adventure chronicled by him.

It was also rumored that the couple had broken up recently, since they had not been seen together at all since the summer, but this casting as well as a romantic dinner date that they were spotted on earlier this week should put those rumors to rest.
Most recently, Amber Heard was seen in the films Paranoia and Machete Kills, released in August and October, respectively. Earlier in her career, she appeared in the comedies Pineapple Express and Zombieland, and also played titular character in the horror film All The Boys Love Mandy Lane.
Amber Heard is 27-years-old, while her future co-star and superstar boyfriend Johnny Depp, is 50. Depp’s role in the film is still unknown, but it has been reported that he has already filmed his scenes during breaks from his other films, Into The Woods and Mordecai.
