GH Stars React To The Death Of Sonya Eddy

Sonya Eddy’s (Epiphany) GH co-stars past and present have reacted to news of her passing on social media. Here is how they are remembering the actress.

Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr/ex-Kiki) “so sad…she was always beyond sweet to me. Such a talent as well, a @generalhospital staple.”

Steve Burton (ex-Jason) At a loss for words. 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. There was not a time we did not laugh. Sonya always made me laugh and she would never let me pass without a big hug..Sonya, (I hate using was) is an incredible LIGHT. She touched so many with her talent and just who she is. She will be missed. Prayers and love to her family. 🙏🏻 Fly to the Angels, Sonya. I know the Good Lord has you. Love you. ❤️”

Teresa Castillo (ex-Sabrina) “There are no words 💔 @sonyaeddy just the kindest most wonderful person. The world was better with her in it. Still trying to wrap my head around this. We love you Sonya. Sing with the angels. We are here, we are now, we are one.”

Drew Cheetwood (ex-Milo) “So saddened to hear we lost Sonya last night. She was everything an actor should be and everything a human can aspire to be. So kind, impeccably funny, crazy thoughtful & just the sweetest. I’m so grateful we were friends. Rest in Power”

William deVry (ex-Julian) “Honestly such a lovely lovely woman. Kind hearted. Passionate. Loved #GH . Very very sad to hear this horrible horrible news. Very shocking. Every so often something reminds us just how fast & precious life is. RIP Sonya. You’ll be missed terribly.”

Risa Dorken (Amy) “My friend, my mentor. She was family, she was magic. The greatest smile, and the best laugh- making her laugh felt like an honor. She was so beloved and admired by everyone. She scooped me up under her wing and guided me over the years. She’d look at you with her big, beautiful eyes and know instantly if you were hiding something. She was a real friend to everyone. I love you so much, Sonya- you knew that. I’m grateful for our time together. I send my love to everyone who loved her. I wish I could give you one more squeeze. May you rest easy.”

Hayley Erin (ex-Kiki) “So deeply saddened to learn of Sonya’s passing. Every interaction I ever had with her left a smile on my face. Lucky to have known you, Sonya.”

Kathleen Gati (Obrecht) “I am in shock and disbelief and heartbroken to hear about the passing of my friend #sonyaeddy. We shared many good laughs and I always enjoyed working with her. Condolences to her family, friends, colleagues and fans. She will be missed. May she R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis)  “I want express my shock and sadness for the unexpected loss, last night, of my co-worker, friend, and simply beautiful soul, Sonya Eddy. Sonya was truly beloved @ General Hospital. Her presence on set would instantly calm & at the same time light up the place. Sonya was solid. Not a false note in her warm groundedness. A hug from Sonya was a spiritual experience. Her hugs were motherly, sisterly and full of her heart, which was huge. Sonya was compassionate, generous and wickedly wry. She got it. She got me. Sonya was a fellow lib and a seeker of justice for others. But she did it quietly and with dignity, while egging me on from the sidelines. “Go get em, Nance.” she’d say. Sonya used her time on earth to love and be loved. She was just plain lovely. I can only assume that she was lifted up last night as she lifted up others, and that there were welcome arms around her to take her on to her new journey. Rest in love and power Ebony (personal joke between us. she’ll get it. lol) You were seen, appreciated & loved.”

Carolyn Hennesy (Diane) ”The world dimmed last night. Lost our brilliant&beautiful inside&out Sonya.  Details will emerge.  It is enough now to say we won’t see her like again. I was BLESSED to know her.@TheRealSonyaEd @GeneralHospital  #heartbroken #gonetoosoon #SonyaEddy

Finola Hughes (Anna) “Sonya…. This is a sad day for us at #GH Wishing you God speed, you brought love & laughter to everything you did… keep singing 🕊 Rest in peace ❤️ we love you ❤️”

Cassandra James (Terry) I’m so shocked to hear about @TheRealSonyaEd passing! She was such a bright light in my time on @GeneralHospital and my heart is with her family & loved ones. I’ll miss laughing with you on set, Sonya. 

Ted King (ex-Alcazar; Ted, B&B) “I remember the day she started on GH. She brought intrigue, humor, and most importantly light to every scene she performed. Rest in Peace phenom!”

Jen Lilley (ex-Maxie) “The sudden news of @TheRealSonyaEd passing hit me like a ton of bricks. 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.”

Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) “How can we say goodbye to this amazing soul..? Always smiling with a laugh that filled the whole stage and a hug like no one else.. You will be deeply missed by so many #ripsoniaeddy”

Jon Lindstrom (Ryan/Kevin) “Mourning the sudden loss of Sonya Eddy. Her smile could light up a soundstage. Her spirit could power a reactor. I loved the few times we worked together, but I REALLY loved the times we would talk in the hallway or on the #GH Nurses Hub set. About life, meditation, acting. God, she was a gift of a human. And she is missed already. Sending my deep condolences to her loved ones.”

Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin) “Sonya… that look. You are the ultimate truth detector. Your warmth, my god your laugh, your hugs… you will be greatly missed. I love you so much. Rest in peace.”

Marcus Anthony Samuel (Felix) “There were so many reasons to love you Sonya. Your laugh was infectious, your sense of humor, on point. Your professionalism, even while in physical pain was amazing to me. Your humility and gratitude is something that I will never forget. But mostly I love you because you were my friend. I’m still in shock, but grateful I got to see you the other day. I know that you’ve missed your dad, so I like to think that you and he are catching up. Love you ma.”

Parry Shen (Brad) “Sonya was a versatile, hardworking & extremely talented actor. At one point I counted her recurring on 4 different TV shows at the same time. Funny, down2earth and always up for anything … It’s been an honor, Sonya.”
