Breaking Bad fans will most likely have caught Aaron Paul's voice cameo at the end of Black Mirror episode 'USS Callister' – but there's a fleeting cameo by an even bigger Hollywood name that you will have missed.

Go back and watch the episode. Brownie points if you can spot Kirsten Dunst.

Dunst only appears for a very brief moment in the background, but she's definitely there.

The actress is engaged to Jesse Plemons – who plays the lead character Robert Daly in 'USS Callister' – and she was around in London when the episode shot one year ago, in January 2017.

"She was sitting on set with Jesse and was like, 'Can I play?'," director Toby Haynes told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I said, 'Sure', and we placed her in the background.

"But when I watched the first take, she wasn't there – continuity had taken her out because she wouldn't be in any of the other shots that day, and I went crazy! I told them, 'Come on! I only need one shot!'"

If you need help finding Dunst, here she is walking into shot, before exiting to the left:
