Sonya Rebecchi (née Mitchell) is a fictional character from the Australian soap opera Neighbours, played by Eve Morey. The actress successfully auditioned for the role and began filming in June 2009. She made her first screen appearance during the episode broadcast on 14 August 2009. Sonya was initially introduced as a recurring guest character, but Morey was promoted to the regular cast in July 2010.

Sonya is portrayed as being good-hearted, funny and loving. She was once addicted to alcohol and gambling, but moved to Erinsborough for a fresh start. While working as a guide dog trainer, Sonya met Toadfish Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney) and they began dating, but the relationship ended when Toadie got back together with his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Scully (Carla Bonner). However, once Sonya learned the relationship was a sham, she agreed to wait for Toadie and they eventually got back together.

Sonya's younger sister, Jade (Gemma Pranita), was later introduced. Sonya and Jade initially had a rocky relationship, but became more supportive of each other. Jade's arrival also precipitated the revelation that Sonya is Callum Jones's (Morgan Baker) biological mother. Other storylines for the character have seen her open her own garden nursery and give birth to a daughter. Sonya has become popular with viewers and Morey has received nominations for Best Daytime Star at the 2011 and 2012 Inside Soap Awards.

Eve Morey chose to spend more time with her children and husband she has quit Neighbours.  Eve departs on screen March 5th 2019 as Sonya dies. Callum returned in the aftermath of Sonya's diagnosis with Jade returning just prior to Sonya's death.
