DEPP’S DEBUT COVER: Lily-Rose Depp is featured on the cover of the spring 2016 issue of Love Magazine, shot by Willy Vanderperre, and due out next month. Depp shared the image on Instagram and wrote “#love16 Cover ❤️ thank you!!! @thelovemagazine @kegrand @willyvanderperre @panosyiapanis.”
This is Depp’s first magazine cover, and in her interview with Love, the French-American actress speaks about acting and her career goals.
The daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp decided she wanted to pursue an acting career at 14, when she shot “Tusk” — her first fiim — directed by Kevin Smith in 2014. She played the role of Girl Clerk No. 2, and while the role was not a big one, it turned her head.
“That was when I realized I wanted to be an actor. I was also surrounded by friends and family, so it was a great experience,” Lily-Rose Depp tells Love.
The 16-year-old currently has three films set for release this year: “Planetarium,” “The Dancer” and “Yoga Hosers” — where she will star alongside her father. “I just know this is what I want to do and I want to work hard at it,” she says. “And hopefully I’ll keep finding roles as beautiful as the ones I’ve already been lucky enough to come across.”
As reported, Depp was named the face of Chanel in July, following in the footsteps of her mother who has been an ambassador for the brand. Depp fronted the French house’s new campaign for the Pearl eyewear collection.
