Meanwhile, Heard has been an advocate for various causes. This includes the demand for LGBT equality and domestic and sexual violence. This is something that she imbibed when she took the role of Mera in the DC Extended Universe.
Heard on her character
Speaking about the character, Heard said that Mera is “a leader. She has integrity.” Heard explained that Mera and Arthur are very different people but “learn to respect each other” even when they have contrasting approaches to life. The actress added that Mera has a “very solid constitution, a strong sense of self” and that she understands her role and her position. Also, she said that the character’s “sense of duty and honor” is something that she respects and admires.
Her forthcoming projects include The Stand, based on Stephen King‘s eponymous novel.
Moreover, Heard is expected to return to the DCEU in Aquaman 2. The film will arrive in theaters on December 16, 2022.
