However, it was her appearance on ABC News Today that gave viewers goosebumps.
The controversial creation has left people across the world uncomfortable after she made a shocking announcement on the news show, which is broadcast across Australia.

Not only does she look eerily realistic, but Sophia is also spookily intelligent.

Her unique interviews have seen her become a global sensation, sadly for all the wrong reasons…
