How Long Has Johnny Depp Been Acting?
Johnny Depp’s first role was a brief appearance in A Nightmare on Elm Street. He eventually became the teenage heartthrob in the late 1980s through his role in the 1987 series 21 Jump Street.
Johnny starred in his first out of many Tim Burton movies, Edward Scissorhands in 1990. The film became a major success, grossing $53 million in the United States. The role also earned him his first Golden Globe nomination.

His career suffered setbacks following continuous box-office failures from 2016 to 2017. These setbacks were made worse by the domestic violence allegations against him, which made his role as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald highly criticized.
