Sonya Eddy Has Passed at 55

 


It's with heavy heart I learned of Sonya's passing yesterday at the young age of 55. Her love, light and tremendous talent is just such a given at General Hospital it is hard to imagine the show without her. Thoughts and wishes out to all her family and friends.

  5. Yeah I saw that on twitter and I'm in shock. I wonder if she has been sick. No wonder we haven't seen her on GH! Are the characters going to say Piffy passed away, or is she going to be recast?

    1. I agree Di. Do NOT recast Piffy.

    2. Maybe they can mention that she passed her exams and had been accepted at a med school in NY or something. That way we can think of her in a happy place.

    3. "Di says, She is irreplaceable. ☹"

      I agree! I don't want a recast!

      Ooooo! I like that!!! Yes please!!! Oh but then that means Mr Hat man and her broke up.. :( OR they can have a long distance relationship. :) They can say that Port Chuckles and NYC are an hour away! :D

    4. update from TMZ
      Sonya Eddy's producing partner and close friend, Tyler Ford, tells us she had a scheduled surgery on December 9 -- it wasn't an emergency. He says she was released from the hospital on the 11th, but started to feel ill again, and went back to the hospital on the 15th ... when doctors discovered she'd developed a serious infection.
      Tyler tells us the infection was uncontainable, and doctors told him Monday morning she'd been placed on life support ... she died Monday night.

    5. I agree with Di, Sonya is irreplaceable. Both Sonya and Epiphany will be missed on GH. I hope they give her a good send-off.

  6. So very sad to hear this. We all loved Epiphany! She looked good when last seen with Hatman and studying to be a dr. Only 55.

  7. This is so sad. Wonder what happened. She was a wonderful part of the cast. Everyone loved her; all the fans. Such a strong and wonderful presence on the show. She will be missed. Do NOT recast. She can't be replaced.

  8. This is heartbreaking - she will be so missed! My heart goes out to her friends, family, and castmates. **Side note after reading other comments. I don't want them to recast. I want her to have a beautiful send off with the results of her MCAT as part of it (I don't think I missed the results??). Epiphany would have been the best doctor.

  9. The Nurses' Ball will not be the same without her. I hope that they give her a fitting tribute on the show.

    1. I hope they get permission to show a clip of her from a former Ball so we can hear her lovely voice again.

  10. Wow what a loss. May she rest in peace.

  11. Very sad. She was so talented. Always a pleasure to watch.

  12. What sad news. Watching Sonya's Epiphany was always a joy. She will be missed.

    If you haven't watched This Show Sucks on YouTube Sonya was one of the soap actors who was on it. Her diva character got some good lines and you could tell that she and the rest of the actors were having a blast.

  13. Very tragic. She was real people. Too often something that's missing. Yeah, we want fantasy and love in the afternoon. But we also want to see ourselves. Her character was no nonsense and often a truth teller. I'm hoping they find a fitting way to let the character pass and in a poignant twist, she receives her word that she passed the MCAT. Gut-wrenching that she never got to follow through with her dream, a lesson for all of us on how life is so short. Maybe they can somehow tie this to the show's 60th anniversary and have a fitting tribute to her, with her photo proudly displayed among the other veterans in GH's "Hall of Fame" wall.

  14. Truly awful news. Sonya is irreplaceable.

  15. Just devastated about this. She is irreplaceable and I agree with all of the other comments. Have a tribute, have her pass her MCATs, send her off GH with love and something happy. Prayers to her friends, family and castmates.

  18. I didn't know Sonya had been on Seinfeld. She played "Rebecca DeMornay" and ran a homeless shelter. YouTube has a clip of her confronting Elaine in the muffin shop complaining about them leaving "just the stumps" of the muffins for the homeless and another clip of George trying to sell a book that's been in the bathroom to her homeless shelter charity shop. Her "Here I come" at the end was so very Piffy. I LOLed. Check it out.
