A lot has happened in 2017 and this year has seen many unexpected changes.
A lot of people have been impacted by this as well.
The biggest thing that has been happening is the sudden loss of one of our heroes.
Sonequan Martins death was a sudden, terrible tragedy and the loss of someone who was so much more than just a character on the screen.
We are all deeply saddened by the loss and we ask for privacy as we grieve.
We will always love and care for Sonequana and will do whatever we can to assist her family in any way we can.
Sorcha Faal, Sonequa’s sister, released a statement on her Facebook page this morning.
“As you know, my sister and I have been living in the United States and I’ve been working in the entertainment industry as a producer, writer and director for several years.
As an actress, I’ve worked in TV shows, commercials and films.
We all miss you, but we can only imagine how much you meant to our family and to our friends and fans around the world, and we are forever grateful for everything you’ve given to us.””
My sister and the rest of the Soneqans family is deeply appreciative of all the support we’ve received and the support of the world.
We all miss you, but we can only imagine how much you meant to our family and to our friends and fans around the world, and we are forever grateful for everything you’ve given to us.”
In 2017, Sorcha’s character was brought to life by the talented actor and actress Sorcha Faam, who plays the part of Sonequin in the upcoming Netflix series Sonequel.
Somewhere in the middle of all of this, Sorba’s sister and sister-in-law, Kara and Jaxon Green, both released a message on their Facebook page.
We have loved and cherished Soneqa from the moment we met her in Season 2, when she was our very first star on the show. “
