The Popular soap actress, who plays Epiphany Johnson, has been taken off contract and placed on recurring status says sources. Eddy was on the night time soap "Night Shift" which ran on Soap Net from (2007-2008). Sonya worked with Billy Dee Williams and has been anchoring the GH Nurses' Desk for years now.
The character of Epiphany brings a certain stability to our screens as well as a light touch when needed. Much like Nurse Jessie Brewer and Amy Vining, you can always depend on seeing her face now and then when we finally get some hospital scenes. She's brought humor and much needed scolding to all the nurses and doctors at GH!
Now it looks like her time on screen will grow even smaller in the months to come. If you're a fan of Sonya's please write her a snail mail at the studio and remember to call/email and write the show as often as possible!! We can't afford to lose another beloved character, even if they are part of the fabric instead of the front burner of GH.
