Actress Amber Heard, 30, and her friends are expected to testify against US actor Johnny Depp, 53, tomorrow.

Photographer iO Tillett Wright is expected to testify that during an argument, Depp had launched into a "cruel and vicious rage" against Heard and screamed, "What if I pulled your hair back?".

Wright, who had submitted a declaration to court on Monday recounting what happened on the evening of May 21 between Depp and Heard, is also expected to state what started the fight, reported TMZ.com.

In the declaration, Wright, 30, said the Pirates of the Caribbean star was "very upset over something he thought someone had done to him".

She added that while she was on the phone with Heard, she heard her "crying in fear and begging Johnny to stop his attack".

Heard screamed "Call 911" before the call was disconnected. Wright said she "called 911 to save Amber's life".

Heard's neighbour, Raquel Rose Pennington, is also expected to give evidence.

Last month, Heard obtained a temporary domestic violence restraining order against Depp after an alleged attack that left her with a bruised face.

She filed for divorce after 15 months of marriage.

The hearing tomorrow will determine if it should be extended.
