Actors are queuing up to have their names associated with it but that wasn’t what drew Mbatha-Raw to get involved.

“Well, for me it was almost like a release, I think, because I’d spent six months earlier in the year doing quite serious roles in quite serious films.

“I had a lot of pent-up joy after the serious stuff.” In person, Mbatha-Raw laughs generously and infectiously, giving off every impression of being the life and soul of the party. I think sometimes it’s hard to find places that aren’t full of attitude.

This newspaper’s critic described her Nell Gwynn as “a rollicking good evening’s entertainment”, and any beneficiary of her company can well imagine such rollicking, though the actress insists she does very little of it in her private life. "I can’t be bothered with all that peacocking sort of stuff.

Then there’s the role that we’re meeting today to discuss in San Junipero, a mind-bending, moving and strangely hopeful episode of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker’s Emmy award-winning sci-fi anthology.

The new eight-episode series was written and directed by Swanberg, starring the likes of Orlando Bloom, Malin Åkerman, Michael Chernus, Marc Maron, Kiersey Clemons, Elizabeth Reaser, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Johnson, Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Jane Adams, Hannibal Buress, Emily Ratajkowski, Aislinn Derbez, Mauricio Ochmann, Jacqueline Toboni, Zazie Beetz and Evan Joingkeit.

Does she feel like now is a good time for the representation of black and mixed-race people in film?

“I mean, I’ve never felt that it’s a bad time, being mixed race myself, whatever that means…” Then later, when the subject comes up again: “I genuinely have never felt limited. I’ve had really great opportunities.” The night before we meet she spends supporting her old friends Asante and David Oyelowo at the red-carpet premiere of Asante’s latest film, A United Kingdom, and recently caught up with Oprah Winfrey, a friend since Belle, at the opening of the Winfrey Theater at the National Museum for African American History and Culture in Washington DC.

She is critically acclaimed for her stellar performance in ‘Belle’ (2013), a British period drama and ‘Beyond the Lights’ (2014), a romantic drama.
