“Guess who’s been to see us at Folly Wildlife Rescue – no, you’re not seeing things- that’s the real Johnny Depp!” the center posted on Instagram. “As you probably know, Johnny has been appearing with our Patron Jeff Beck on his UK tour and in a recent break, Jeff’s wife Sandra brought him up to visit us and see for himself the work we do with wildlife. And what an incredible afternoon it was for our staff and volunteers, as he toured the hospital’s care and vet units. Johnny was incredibly complimentary and in his own words ‘blown away’ by what he saw.”

The post added, “To top the visit off, we even allowed him the rare privilege of briefly holding Freddie (as in Mercury!) one of the many orphaned badger cubs we’re currently hand rearing – and I think it’s fair to say he was bowled over by the whole experience!”

Johnny Depp has been keeping busy with his music career in recent days with his multiple appearances on Jeff Beck’s tour. With each stop, the two performed multiple songs together, including a live rendition of their previous collaboration “Isolation.” They also have just revealed that they even recorded a new album together, and fans won’t have to wait too long to listen to it as it will be available in July.

“I’m gonna take this opportunity and tell you I met this guy five years ago, and we’ve never stopped laughing since,” Beck told the crowd. “We actually made an album. I don’t know how it happened. It will be out in July.”

This news follows Depp recently coming out favorably in his defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp contended that Heard had defamed him by going public with false allegations of domestic abuse. The jury felt that Depp had proven Heard guilty on all three counts of defamation. The actor released a statement after the verdict in which had declared that he had his life given back to him by the jury.
