The most recent season of Black Mirror, which has just debuted on Netflix following a four-year hiatus, showcases a constellation of renowned film and television stars, among them Salma Hayek and Aaron Paul. The fourth installment of the series, titled “Mazey Day,” also boasts a cast that will be familiar to viewers due to their involvement in various recent prominent shows and films, spanning from “Mare of Easttown” to “Joker.”
Helming this episode is Uta Briesewitz, an accomplished director who has also lent her expertise to acclaimed series such as “Orange is the New Black,” “Stranger Things,” “The Wire,” and “The Wheel of Time.”
“Mazey_Day” delves into the story of a troubled young celebrity who becomes ensnared in the clutches of relentless paparazzi while grappling with the devastating aftermath of a hit-and-run incident. Here is everything you should know about the cast of “Mazey_Day”:
Who are the actors starring in the Black Mirror episode “Mazey Day”?
Zazie Beetz takes on the role of Bo, a tenacious paparazzo who ceaselessly pursues the elusive perfect shot. Beetz is widely recognize for her portrayal of Van in the comedy-drama series “Atlanta,” Domino in “Deadpool 2,” and Mary Magdalene in the comedic series “History of the World: Part II.” She also made an appearance in “Joker” as Sophie Dumond, the neighbor who becomes the object of Arthur Fleck’s disturbing obsession, and is set to reprise the role in the sequel.
Danny Ramirez, who tweeted last year in May that he would do an episode of Black Mirror “for free,” also makes an appearance in this episode, although we can assume he indeed compensated. The actor previously portrayed Fanboy in the highly anticipated sequel “Top Gun: Maverick,” Ash in the Hulu drama series “No Exit,” and Joaquin Torres in the Marvel series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” He will also reprise his role in the upcoming fourth Captain America film, “Brave New World,” scheduled for next year.
Clara Rugaard takes on the eponymous role of Mazey Day, a tormented young starlet relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. She garnered acclaim for her portrayal of Neve Kelly in the gripping crime thriller series “The Rising.” Rugaard’s previous film credits include her lead role in the Netflix sci-fi film “I Am Mother,” her portrayal of Stefcia in the wartime musical “Love Gets a Room,” and her performance as Laura in the romantic drama “Press Play.”
