Depp added: “Finally, I wish to say this. The surreal judgement of the court in the U.K. 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.”

Depp, 57, had sued The Sun after it claimed he assaulted his ex-wife Amber Heard, which he denies. Earlier this month, he lost the case.

In July, Heard spent 20 hours in the witness box detailing the alleged physical attacks and accusing her ex-husband of violent and extreme abuse of drink and class A drugs.

She also described how the star allegedly held her “hostage” for three days while they were in Australia during the filming of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

On November 2, Judge Mr Justice Nicol said The Sun had proved what was in the article to be “substantially true”.

Today, the studio also released an official statement confirming the decision to remove its biggest star from the Harry Potter spin-off.
