Actors often work long hours, and immerse themselves completely in their roles. Many times, this process takes all their energy and there’s not much more an actor can do, other than perform to the best of their ability. While this is the reality for many actors, particularly in-demand Hollywood stars, some of these talented people have found another way of getting their creative juices flowing: through music.

For Johnny Depp, music was actually Plan A, but acting took off for him first. Now, after a long career on-screen and a tumultuous public defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, Depp is getting back to his original joy. He'll be rejoining his Hollywood Vampires bandmates—including Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Tommy Henriksen—on a six-date tour of Europe in summer 2023.

And that's not all. Shortly after the trial ended, Depp had made a surprise appearance with Jeff Beck to perform their 2020 John Lennon remake 'Isolation.' A few days later, Depp and Beck announced they’d be releasing a joint album titled '18' on July 15. The 13-track collection will feature two originals by Depp as well as covers of classic songs by The Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, Janis Ian, The Velvet Underground, and others.

Many noted film and television stars have harmonized their on-screen careers with musicality, resulting in varying degrees of success. From talented singers to proficient instrument players, many actors and actresses prove that talent can be transposed into other art forms.
