When Miley Cyrus appeared in Black mirror, Many people soon compared the character with her most popular character. But there are similarities between that character and Cyrus himself. This was a major event in her life that allowed her to play this role.
Miley Cyrus started acting as an actor from “Hannah Montana”
Cyrus has been performing for a long time. Her first important role was the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana. She portrays the protagonist Miley Stewart, and she is still a musician. In order to maintain a normal sense of life, Miley wore a blonde wig and took the stage name Hannah Montana to keep her true identity secret.
The sitcom was broadcast online from 2006 to 2011, and a feature film was released in 2009. It made Cyrus (starred in the movie with her actual father Billy Ray Cyrus) a superstar. Cyrus released music along with the performance, and eventually became an independent artist.

Since Hannah Montana She stopped broadcasting and she continued to perform here and there. However, most of her roles are on the big screen. One of her few adventures in the TV world is the role played in the 2019 episode of the popular anthology Black mirror On Netflix.
In Season 5 episodes, “Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too,” Cyrus plays Ashley O. Like before Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana, Ashley is a pop singer wearing a wig and singing cheerful tunes. But under all this, she is a completely different person. Cyrus also voiced Ashley Too, a robot toy like Ashley O, but there was more than one voice.
Cyrus said the film was “really cool”
In a variety show interview in June 2020, Cyrus talked about more about shooting this episode. “We were shooting in South Africa. I’m really happy. I have made records and traveled around the world, but I had to stay there for about a month and record in the recording studio, and I haven’t cooperated with some before Choreographers worked together.”
She continued: “It’s a really cool experience to be so isolated from my family and friends. I can really disconnect from myself, and I can really enter Ashley.”

Cyrus filmed this episode in late 2018. There, the Malibu home she shared with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth was burnt down in the Woolsey fire. Not long after Cyrus returned from South Africa, the couple got married. But she said that during the filming process, she “can get rid of this trauma and apply it to her performances.”
She said: “When Ashley woke up from a coma, it was completely painful, that day I lost my house in Malibu.” “Sometimes I had to stop, just walked outside and completely melted It was really a very interesting moment for me, because my personal life collapsed a lot, which is the same as Ashley’s life.
Cyrus is like Ashley O (she is not)
Cyrus did not hesitate to admit that she was like Ashley O. “Before I actually played my own life, there were some obvious similarities in the roles I played, for example she wanted to explore rock music and change the genre. After that Hannah Montana, It’s really important to me,” she said.
However, unlike Ashley O, she was not under the control of a tortuous manager. She likes to have her mother as a manager. She said: “Without parents, I bet my life will be more like the story of Ashley O. What makes me really different from Ashley is that my parents and parents surround my team.”
