As a result, Depp would eventually move to another band named Rock City Angels as a guitarist. The Rock City Angels had all the potential to make it big, especially after inking a deal with New Renaissance Records. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out.

After putting hold is career in music, Depp started to explore the acting industry. His first acting debut came in a classic horror film, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Although the role wasn’t originally for Depp, as it was supposed to be for Charlie Sheen, Wes Craven decided to instead cast Depp since they couldn’t agree to a deal with Sheen.

Although Depp was reportedly paid $45,000 per episode, he didn’t like his popularity as a teen idol and wanted to explore other character roles. Eventually, he left production after the show’s fourth season. It’s worth noting, however, he’d make a short cameo in the show’s movie adaptation in 2012. All of this, clearly, added to Johnny Depp's net worth in 2023.
