The Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too cast may be Black Mirror's best yet.
Who is in the Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too cast? When the British sci-fi horror anthology first dropped back in 2011, many found it unavoidably captivating. Before long, Black Mirror had cultivated such an admirable and dedicated fanbase - safe to say, demand for more episodes was powerful.
We've now arrived at season five, which dropped on Netflix on Wednesday, 5th June 2019. Fans are already praising the show's thought-provoking yet highly entertaining ideas, but awareness of the cast has never been so central.
As the show has progressed, more and more recognisable names have hopped aboard. Never has this been clearer than in the series' final episode (3), Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too.
The episode centres upon a lonely teenager desperate to feel closer to the pop star Ashley O (Miley Cyrus). When Ashley unveils a new smart-doll named Ashley Too, she, of course, makes an enthusiastic purchase. However, things aren't quite so simple; when are they ever in the world of Black Mirror...
Having the pop sensation and actress play Ashley O is perhaps a small stroke of genius. The episode explores themes of duality and persona, so there really is no one better to help enforce this. Miley is a terrific example of "good girl gone bad", but as we know, nothing is ever quite as it seems with these broad labels.
Jack - the older sister to the protagonist, Rachel - is played by Madison Davenport.
The actress has starred in some pretty significant projects in her career so far. She played Ashley Wheeler in acclaimed TV series Sharp Objects, Haley in the Amy Poehler and Tina Fey comedy Sisters and Na'el in Darron Aronofsky's biblical epic, Noah.
As you can see, Davenport's casting is yet another great blessing for Black Mirror.
We also have Angourie Rice in the central role. She does a terrific job adding wonderful depth to the character of Rachel; if you recognised her, it's no wonder.
With roles in such films as Spider-Man: Homecoming (Betty), Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled (Jane) and Shane Black's hilarious 2016 romp The Nice Guys (Holly March), the actress is becoming quite the familiar face.
She turns in solid work here, starring alongside the likes of Greg Kriek (Maze Runner: The Death Cure), Susan Pourfar (The Sinner) and more.
