Miley Cyrus Stuns in New Season of ‘Black Mirror': See How Viewers Reacted
On Wednesday, June 5th, Netflix dropped Season 5 of the hit show, which features only three episodes starring the "Cattitude" singer, Fleabag actor Andrew Scott, Marvel‘s Anthony Mackie and more. However, it's Cyrus' episode titled "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too" that has literally everyone talking.
We won't spoil anything for anyone who hasn't watched yet, but the ep, which deals with the "exploitation of artists," is about "a lonely teenager [who] yearns to connect with her favorite pop star—whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy it appears." Cyrus plays a purple-haired pop star who struggles with mental health issues.
Cyrus even posted a photo of her character on Twitter and changed her name to "Ashley O."
So far, fans are praising her role in Black Mirror with viewers saying she deserves an Oscar for this performance. Honestly, it may be the similarities between Cyrus' real-life career as a singer, as well as her obvious growth as an actor, but many fans believe this is her best acting yet.
