The highly anticipated brand new season of Black Mirror is finally out and it is all set to engage and shock us. With big names like Miley Cyrus and Avengers: Endgame star Anthony Mackie at the forefront of this season, the horrifying tales of technology are expected to be equally jittery and nerve wrecking like the previous seasons. In a first, Miley Cyrus features in the series as a popstar named Ashley O. She transformed into a new purple-haired pop star for an episode titled, 'Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too' of the new season. 

Creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly the idea behind casting Miley and why she deemed perfect for the role. Jones revealed that real life pop star Miley Cyrus embodied the attitude of the story they were trying to tell, "about an artist and how they're trying to find their own identity and break out from the commercial machine." 

They further revealed that casting Miley made sense because they needed viewers to immediately connect with Ashley O as the pop star in the episode. It came as a surprise to many that Miley had seen Black Mirror and was already a huge fan of the series. Reportedly, the singer gave her nod for the project quickly after reading the script.
