An entertainment industry expert has testified that Hollywood actress Amber Heard lost $45 million to $50 million in endorsements and TV and film income over claims that she faked domestic violence allegations against former husband and star Johnny Depp. Heard's team called the expert, Kathryn Arnold, as well as a psychiatrist and an orthopedic surgeon as the defamation trial began its sixth and final week. Heard's lawyers were also expected to call Depp to the stand on Monday, but they ultimately decided they did not need his testimony, reports 'Variety'. Depp previously testified over four days in April. Heard's side is seeking to prove that she suffered a severe career setback after Depp's lawyer, Adam Waldman, accused her of perpetrating an "abuse hoax" in 2020. Arnold testified that Heard cannot find work in major studio projects because of the volume of online vitriol she continues to face. 

"In the industry, they like her work," Arnold said. "But they can't work with her right now." Arnold compared Heard's earnings to a series of other "comparable" actors Jason Momoa, Ana de Armas, Gal Gadot, Zendaya and Chris Pine to draw conclusions about what her career trajectory could have looked like, were it not for Waldman's statements. Heard earned $1 million for her role as Mera in 'Aquaman', which grossed $1 billion in 2018, and $2 million for 'Aquaman 2', due out next year. Heard has claimed she had to "fight" to stay in the sequel, and has said that her role was significantly cut down. Arnold testified that Heard should have been able to renegotiate her 'Aquaman 2' salary for $4 million or more, but could not because she had no leverage. On cross-examination, Depp's attorney Wayne Dennison took issue with several of the comps, suggesting that the actors are more famous than Heard. 

In quizzing her about other actors, Dennison got Arnold to reveal that she does not know who Patrick Wilson is. Dennison noted that the damage to Heard's career might have been due to negative press tied to the 2020 defamation trial in the UK. Dennison also argued that Depp is not responsible for the negative social media campaign targeting Heard. Depp's team is expected to call their own witnesses on Tuesday and Wednesday to rebut Heard's claim. They are also expected to play a deposition from Walter Hamada, the president of DC Films, who is expected to state that Heard did not suffer setbacks in the course of her casting in the sequel to 'Aquaman'. Depp sued Heard for $50 million in 2019, alleging that she defamed him when she described herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse" in a Washington Post op-ed. Heard filed a defamation counterclaim after Waldman accused her of perpetrating a "hoax". 

Much of the trial has focused on often horrific allegations of violence, as well as Depp's drug and alcohol use. Depp has accused Heard of throwing a vodka bottle at him at a house in Australia, severing the tip of his right finger. Heard's team called Richard Moore, an orthopedic surgeon, who testified that the injury was not consistent with Depp's account of it. Heard has said that he likely severed it when he smashed a phone, and Moore testified that it would also have been consistent with pinching it in an accordion-style door. Heard's lawyers also called a psychiatrist, David Spiegel, who testified that Depp's behaviour was consistent with substance abuse disorder and with being a perpetrator of intimate partner violence. Spiegel also testified that Depp's memory appeared to have been damaged by substance abuse. Depp's team has indicated that both the star and model Kate Moss, his former girlfriend, will be called as rebuttal witnesses on Wednesday. However, the schedules remain fluid.
