Michaela Coel is known for appearing in 'Black Mirror' and ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’, she's also the star of her own sitcom, ‘Chewing Gum’. The actress recently had a bizarre experience on a Virgin Atlantic flight and hopped on Twitter to explain what happened.
Congratulations to Virgin Atlantic passengers once again!— Michaela Coel (@MichaelaCoel) 15 May 2018
A lady just confused me for a hostess and asked me to clean up her mess and increase the flight temp.

Maybe if Michaela was wearing something that looked like a flight attendant's uniform, we’d understand. However, the actress was simply wearing a black hoodie. Seems like the passenger was just a bit confused, or perhaps they mistook Michaela for one of her characters in ‘Black Mirror’. In the episode ‘Nosedive’, Coel plays an airport stewardess. She re-appeared in ‘USS Callister’ as Shania, a pilot onboard a virtual spaceship.
You can catch Michaela Coel in ‘Been So Long’ later this year. The anticipated film is a musical set in Camden Town, London.
