About Ashley O
Ashley O grew up in the spotlight and while she loves performing, her disillusionment from her career and her need to be her own person takes priority on this episode of Black Mirror. She is seen increasingly struggling to come to terms with her brand of wholesome, overly sentimental music and is wanting more and more to branch out into genres of music she better connects to. However, these efforts are foiled by her own aunt Catherine who nurtured her since she became orphaned by her parents’ deaths when she was a young child. Because she is legally locked to a contract until the age of 25, she was forcibly medicated to make her more agreeable and less combatant about her music and her life. This forced medication was supervised by her aunt Catherine and administered by her aunt’s associate Dr. Munk.
