‘General Hospital’ star Sonya Eddy dead at 55


“General Hospital” actress Sonya Eddy has died at 55.

The soap star passed away Monday night, according to her close pal, Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer.

Spencer took to Instagram to share the sad news, penning a heartfelt tribute beneath a photo of Eddy, which read: “The world lost another creative angel.

Her legions of ‘General Hospital’ fans will miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones, friends, and fans.”

No cause of death was disclosed.

Eddy — a licensed vocational nurse — had been acting since the mid-1990s, making her debut on “The Drew Carey Show” back in 1995.

She became a familiar face on small screens in the ensuing years, with minor roles on “Seinfeld,” “Home Improvement” and “The Middle.”

The star also scored bit parts in a variety of big-budget movies, including “Barbershop,” “Daddy Day Care,” and “Seven Pounds.”

However, Eddy is best known as no-nonsense nurse Epiphany Johnson in “General Hospital” — a role she started playing back in 2006.

The actress became a regular cast member and appeared in the program until this year, clocking up 543 episodes.

Eddy was previously posted prolifically on her Instagram account, sharing photos with friends and stories about her work.

However, she had not posted to her page since August, with her last upload an advertisement for her film, “Frank & Penelope.”

After news of her passing broke on Tuesday, fans flocked to the comments section beneath the post to share their condolences.

“I’m so saddened to learn of your passing. I loved you on GH. You embody beauty, intelligence, talent, and so much more. Prayers to your loved ones,” one fan wrote.

“‘I’ve been a fan since 2006,” another forlornly penned. “My condolences to your family.”

  1. ANR, please find the 12/20/22 Washington Post piece by Dr. Leana Wen and post it.
    This monster said on CNN “the unvaxed should not be able allowed to leave their homes” 9/10/21

    Now, she says this: “Vaccinated people who never had Covid are at least THREE times as likely to be infected as unvaccinated people with prior infection.”
    “Those who were vaccinated but never had Covid we’re FOUR times as likely to have severe illness resulting in hospitalizations or death compared to the unvaccinated who recovered from it. Protection from natural immunity also wanes at a SLOWER rate than from vaccination.”
    “Two months after their shots, people who had been vaccinated and never had covid had 2× the number of infections as people who never received vaccines but had recently recovered from covid. After six months, the first groups infection rate was nearly 3× times higher than the second’s.”
    People who only received 2 covid vaccine shots “are almost certainly LESS protected from Covid than people who have had the virus.”
    “For those who with documented prior infection, I’m NOT convinced that the (covid vaccine) MANDATE makes them — or others around them — any safer.

    Bravo to all of the anti vaxxers, conspiracy theorists, tin-foil hat wearers as well as any other manufactured invectives, I believe we’ve been finally vindicated.

    Sadly, this winter is a pandemic of the vaccinated.

      • On a serious note — New study from the Cleveland Clinic: The more doses of Covid vaccines the more incidents of Covid.
        What do we call a vaccine that with each dose raises the risk of infection in the people who get it?
