In Memoriam: Fallen Stars of 2022
The General Hospital family is mourning the loss of one of their own.
“At a loss for words,” former General Hospital cast member Steve Burton shared on Instagram Dec. 20. “Devastated. @sonyaeddy is one of the greatest. We worked together for a long time and we had so much fun. I cherished our on screen relationship, but our off screen relationship much more. Kindred spirits.”
Steve when on to share that his co-star always made him laugh “and she would never let me pass without a big hug.”
“Sonya, (I hate using was) is an incredible LIGHT,” he continued. “She touched so many with her talent and just who she is. She will be missed.”
Sonya joined the cast of the long-running soap opera as nurse Epiphany Johnson in 2006, making her final appearance on Oct. 20, 2022.

“The sudden news of @sonyaeddy passing hit me like a ton of bricks,” she wrote on Instagram. “I can’t stop crying. I loved that woman. In our #GH scenes, she always stared at my forehead and I stared at her lips because if we made eye contact, we’d lose it in uproarious laughter. #ripsonyaeddy.”
