A special Sonya Eddy-focused memorial episode will be shown at the end of March, starting off the Nurses’ Ball and the 60th anniversary, according to General Hospital (GH) spoilers and updates. The revelation was made on Wednesday, January 10 during the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, California. The 60th anniversary of GH will be April 1, 2023.
General Hospital Spoilers – Head Nurse Epiphany Johnson
On December 19, 2022, Ms. Eddy died suddenly as a result of unanticipated surgery complications. Beginning in 2006, she took over the role of Head Nurse Epiphany Johnson from Audrey Hardy (Rachel Ames), who had retired from acting. From July 2007 until October 2008, Epiphany featured on both General Hospital and its SoapNet spinoff, Night Shift.
In addition to serving as senior nurse at General Hospital, Epiphany regularly held the post of nursing instructor and, at the time of her portrayer’s passing, was pursuing a medical degree. She most recently had a musical pastime with Marshall Ashford (Robert Gossett), with whom she had a semi-romantic connection. He played the piano, she sang.
General Hosptial Updates – Nurses’ Ball Star
Epiphany was frequently the star of the show at the Nurses’ Ball thanks to her powerful singing voice. Despite never getting married, she dated Milo Giambetti and Toussaint Dubois early in her General Hospital tenure. Toussaint Dubois was a janitor played by Billy Dee Williams (Drew Cheetwood). Stan Johnson (Kiko Ellsworth), her only child, sadly perished in a mafia hit that Jerry Jacks ordered (Sebastian Roche). People didn’t want to mess with Epiphany because she would quickly correct them, and when she told to go, they did. Despite losing her son and having diabetes and heart illness, she was a resilient lady.
Sonya Eddy’s Other Endeavors
Sonya appeared in several well-known primetime shows as recurrent characters or guests, despite the fact that she was arguably best recognised for her role as Epiphany on General Hospital. Between 1995 and 2022, she appeared in many films and voiced several video game characters, which kept her quite busy. Given that the Nurses’ Ball begins on April 3 and since April 1 is General Hospital’s 60th anniversary, a Saturday, it seems most probable that the tribute episode will run on March 31.
Both fans and members of the cast and crew are already missing Sonya Eddy. What will be shown in the tribute episode will be intriguing to watch.
