In 2008, she voiced the Greek goddess Athena in the PSP game God of War: Chains of Olympus and reprised the role in the PS3 game God of War III and in the PSP game God of War: Ghost of Sparta, both released in 2010.[1]

Torpey is now a singer, focusing specifically in the acoustic rock and folk genres.

On July 21–22, 2008, she returned to One Life to Live for two days after Jessica's mother is in a car accident but she was playing Megan Buchanan (who was miscarried). On June 27, 2011, it was revealed that Erin would be returning to One Life to Live as a new character, the third role she played.[2]

On September 8, 2011, Torpey returned to OLTL for an episode as Erin, Cristian Vega's colleague.
