Despite Depp trial, Jason Momoa saved Amber Heard's 'Aquaman' job

Amber Heard's role in the movie's sequel is allegedly being advocated for by "Aquaman" himself, Jason Momoa.

During her ongoing trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp, Kathryn Arnold served as Heard's witness Monday. 

Her red-wigged role was supposed to be her "star-is-born" moment, but she claimed she was almost cut from "Aquaman 2" because of Johnny Depp disputes.

Arnie further said Heard's job was saved by Momoa, 42, and director James Wan, 45, who "committed to her" and "insisted" she be a part of the film, according to the Daily Mail.

As a result of Amber Heard's negative reputation because of Johnny Depp, her role in "Aquaman 2" was significantly reduced, said Kathryn Arnold.

Her role was "dismissed" after she trained five hours a day for several months, according to a costume designer.

After meeting with Heard before her testimony, Arnold said that Heard's character, Mera, had a "strong romantic arc throughout the film 

and some great action sequences" before her action scenes were "cut out" and her role was "radically reduced."

Jessica Kovacevic, Amber Heard's agent, testified there was a "lack of chemistry" between Heard and Jason Momoa in the sequel to "Aquaman."
