Hollywood star Johnny Depp is on a European tour with his rock and roll tribute band, Hollywood Vampires. However, his images that are circulating on social media have become a matter of concern for his fans who are accustomed to seeing him in the garb of Jack Sparrow. Right now, he does not sport his trademark tan, long hair, mustache and beard associated with the main character of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The New Zealand Herald reports that some of his fans are not able to accept his new image and are worried that he may not be well. They feel it could be a result of his legal problems or due to his tour schedule that has left him exhausted.

Fans of Johnny Depp wish him well

It all started with images of the star that appeared on social media. The photos were snapped at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Petersburg, Russia. Johnny Depp is shown with a new mohawk hairstyle and he appears to be pale and out of form. He is on a European tour with his rock band Hollywood Vampires and his fans are naturally concerned about his health. Fans of the 54-year-old Hollywood star (he is turning 55 on June 9) are spread across the world and a section of them feel he is cultivating a new image for one of his forthcoming films. He, like any other actor, is a perfectionist and wants to ensure that his on-screen character will be flawless with respect to appearance and mannerisms.

He has been nominated for three Academy Awards since he launched his career more than three decades back.

Harry Potter spinoff will feature Johnny Depp

According to Fox News, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor is expected to return to the big screen later this year. It will be in a Harry Potter movie where he will portray the role of Grindelwald.

The film is “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.” J.K. Rowling has stuck to her decision to cast Johnny Depp in spite of some domestic issues he had with his ex-wife Amber Heard. Johnny is currently on a European tour with his rock group, Hollywood Vampires. He plays guitar alongside rock veterans Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, but the images that have appeared on social media have left his well-wishers worried.

Let us hope that the fears of his ill health are nothing but figments of imagination.

Billboard adds that the actor had been involved in a number of legal disputes in the recent past and faced divorce proceedings from actress Amber Heard. He had to part with a $7 million divorce settlement and she donated the amount to charity.
