Black Mirror: Bandersnatch Cast & Character Guide

Warning: Spoilers for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

Here is who stars in Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Netflix's new interactive film directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night) where the viewer can actually make pivotal choices that affect the outcome for the characters and story.

In Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, 19-year-old Stefan Butler is a programmer who dreams of adapting a book called Bandersnatch into a computer game. Bandersnatch is a "choose your own adventure"-style novel by Jerome F. Davies, who also went insane while writing it. If the viewer makes the correct choices, Stefan is able to get Tuckersoft, a video game company, to produce Bandersnatch, but he faces a deadline and has to make the game fully playable while fighting his inner demons, his controlling father Peter, his psychiatrist Dr. Haynes, and the foreboding feeling that Stefan is not in control of his life - someone else unseen may be making all of the decisions for him.

Black Mirror has a history of casting big-name international stars but for Bandersnatch, creator Charlie Brooker cast lesser-known British faces, which helps immerse the viewer in the reality of the innovative Black Mirror-style game they are playing.
