About four hours later, Depp shared a video of himself in the same setting as the first image.

He addresses his 1.8m followers, "I don’t think I’ve really ever felt any particular reason to (join social media) until now."

"Now is the time to open up a dialogue, as the threat of this invisible enemy has already caused immeasurable tragedies and damage to people’s lives."

The 56-year-old continues to encourage his followers to get creative during their time in isolation.

"We cannot and must not succumb to shutting down and giving in to what feels like hellish quarantine monotony."

"Create something today that will benefit yourselves and others tomorrow."

Depp goes on, "Do anything you think could be of use to brighten someone’s day."

"Draw, read, paint, think, learn, make a film on your phone, play an instrument if you play; if you don’t, learn."
