'Black Mirror' star Michaela Coel mistaken for attendant during flight
The actress played an airport stewardess in an episode of 'Black Mirror'
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.

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.
