Sonya Eddy career

Sonya Eddy, a native of Concord, California, graduated from UC Davis. During her intense studies she began her acting career.

Sonya Eddy, a well known for her role as Epiphany Johnson's chief nurse passed away. News was confirmed by executive producer Frank Valentini. Let's see how did the actress die and what was Sonya Eddy Cause of death in detail.

Eddy made her acting debut in the 1990 production of Zora Is My Name by Ruby Dee. Other theatrical credits included Bloody Mary in South Pacific, The Comedy of Errors, and The Witch in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods.

She relocated to Los Angeles and made appearances in sitcoms including Home Improvement, Murphy Brown, The Drew Carey Show, Married… with Children, and The Drew Carey Show. She was a recurrent character on Joan of Arcadia from 2004 to 2005. Eddy started regularly portraying Epiphany Johnson on General Hospital in 2006.

Previously, Shared Loss of Dear Friend

Along with numerous photos, Eddy’s message was filled with heartache, reflection, appreciation and some advice for all of us. “One of my dearest friends has moved through the veil. For me, it was unexpected. The last time I spoke with him, I didn’t even consider that it was the last time. For this man was full of life, light, and love. Yet, I still made sure to tell him that I loved him. That he was gonna beat this. Unfortunately I was incorrect. COVID-19 took my friend’s life. It was decidedly quick.

I’ll always remember this pivotal scene between Epiphany & Patrick after Robin’s death. She made me cry. It feels like one of the family is gone. She will be missed.

Jon Lindstrom said,

Her smile could power a reactor. I loved the few times we worked together, but I REALLY loved the times we would talk about life, meditation, acting. She was a gift & she is missed already. Condolences to her loved ones.

J Says Online tweeted,

When I met Sonya Eddy at #GHFCW,I told her I felt I must have everything together by a certain age.She gave me a side-eye & wise spiel abt pressuring myself & being a perfectionist. My autograph read “Life is easier than you think.” She was warm, sassy, & seemed full of life. #GH

Myra Hargis said,

There is no way to replace her because she made the character of Epiphany Johnson real to us. There had better be a memorial show devoted to her. Trying to put another actress in the role will not work. She touched every character on @GeneralHospital! RIP

Jennifer Picetti said,

No one and I do mean, NO ONE could play “Nurse Johnson” (soon to be “Dr. Johnson”) the way @sonyaeddy did. We #GH fans will TRULY, TRULY miss her. This is just devastating news. Sending her family and friends as well as my fellow fans, my light, love, prayers and positive energy. May she rest in peace and fly with the angels.
