Soap opera star Sonya Eddy, best known for playing Epiphany Johnson on “General Hospital,” has died at 55, her business partner Tyler Ford confirmed in a statement to USA TODAY.

“It with the heaviest heart that I have to announce the sudden passing of my business partner, creative soulmate, and best friend Sonya Eddy. She left an indelible imprint in every person that she touched, through the screen and off,” Ford said, adding that memory contributions can be made to The Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association Inc.

Eddy was also remembered by fellow actress Octavia Spencer, who shared that “my friend @sonyaeddy passed away last night” without providing details of the cause of death.

“The world lost another creative angel,” Spencer captioned a photo of Eddy on Instagram Tuesday. “Her legions of @generalhospitalabc fans will miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones, friends, and fans!”

“General Hospital” executive producer Frank Valentini called the late actress “incredible.”

“I truly loved her not only as actress, but as a friend,” Valentini wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “The lights in the hub of the nurse’s station will now be a little dimmer, but her spirit and light will live on in both the show and our set.”
