(Robbie Collin’s article appeared in the Telegraph 11/1; via the Drudge Report.)

She doesn't need fame, flattery or money. Could Geminoid F – robot star of the new Japanese film Sayonara – be the movie star of the future? By Robbie Collin

Meet Geminoid F. In many ways, she’s perfect for the movie business. She’s beautiful, engaging, and can carry out a director’s every request on cue.

Time after time, she replicates the same performance without the slightest fluff or fumble, and can work for weeks on end without complaint. You don’t even have to pay her. Just remember to plug her in at night so she doesn’t die on set the next day, and she’ll be fine.
