Johnny Depp was welcomed to NYC on Friday night by a crowd of fans who came out to get a glimpse of the star at a Barnes & Noble bookstore in Union Square. He was in LA earlier this week then travelled to the East Coast to support friend and author Damien Echols' new book, Life After Death. Nichols, a former death row inmate, was part of the West Memphis Three, who were recently released from prison after wrongfully serving 18 years. This isn't the first time Johnny stepped out to support Nichols: he traveled to Canada just last month for the TIFF premiere of West of Memphis. While Johnny was spending time in the Big Apple, a tragedy occurred on the set of his new film, The Lone Ranger — a crew member died after he was found unresponsive in a large tank while prepping for an underwater scene.
