Epiphany Johnson on the ABC Television Network's "General Hospital"
Sonya Eddy started on "General Hospital" in March 2006 in the role of Epiphany Johnson, a strong-willed and no-nonsense nurse who is always putting in her two cents' worth with her medical colleagues. Eddy also played the role in the hit SOAPnet spinoff "General Hospital: Night Shift."
Growing up in Concord, California, Eddy went to UC Davis, where she double-majored in English and African-American studies, with a minor in Dramatic Arts. After college, she had her acting debut in the West coast premiere of Ruby Dee's "Zora Is My Name," in which she played a number of characters. Other roles followed, including Courtesan in "Comedy of Errors," the Witch in Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods" and Bloody Mary in Rogers and Hammerstein's classic "South Pacific," where she won an Arty Award.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Eddy's acting career has taken off with many additional credits, including the television series "CSI," "In Case of Emergency," "Everybody Hates Chris," "Monk," "ER," "Joan of Arcadia," "Seinfeld" and "The Drew Carey Show," among many others. Her feature film appearances include "Coach Carter" with Samuel L. Jackson, "Bad News Bears" with Billy Bob Thornton, "Year of the Dog" with Molly Shannon, "Barbershop," "Daddy Daycare," "Matchstick Men" and "Surviving Christmas."
Among Eddy's many special skills and talents, she is an accomplished improvisation and sketch artist, vocalist and voice-over artist.
She currently lives in Los Angeles.
