The actor has directed one episode in the fourth series of Charlie Brooker's satirical show, which returns at the end of the year
Jodie Foster has shared a clip of the Black Mirror episode she directed.
Foster directed the episode called ‘ArkAngel’, and she discussed the plot line during her appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night (December 15).
“The episode is about, like a lot of Black Mirror, all around technology,” she explained. “This is a mother-daughter story – a mother would like to keep her child safe.
“She has all of the paranoias that sometimes new parents have, and she finds this device that allows her to figure out a way to keep her child safe, and it may require an implant. She’s going for it.”
She added: “Black Mirror is a beautiful show. It’s sort of like The Twilight Zone – each episode is like a little movie [with] a different cast, in a different place in the world. This particular one really feels like an indie film […] that’s about the complicated little details between a mother and daughter.”

Meanwhile, series creator Brooker recently discussed working Foster on the episode. Speaking to NME, he said: “She’s done shows for Netflix before – Orange Is The New Black, House Of Cards, things like that. So, Netflix passed her the script, which she liked, and then we had a Skype chat, which is quite a moment, isn’t it? A Skype chat with Jodie Foster.
“She is super-smart and extremely grounded, you would say extremely grounded for anyone – let alone someone who’s been in the public eye since they were about four years old.”
