According to her publicist, Craig Schneider, the actress Annie Wersching died suddenly early on Sunday morning from cancer. Wersching has a 45-year-old age.
She was most famous for her role as FBI agent Renee Walker in the television series “24.”
Stephen Full, Wersching’s spouse, sent the following statement to legalnewsupdates:
There is a gaping chasm in this family’s soul right now. However, she left us with the means to do so. She was amazed by the most mundane experience. She could dance without any music. She showed us to pursue adventure regardless of where it leads. “Go look for it. Everything has it. We’ll search for it, he wrote.
In the video game “The Last of Us,” Wersching also contributed Tess’ voice. In response to Wesching’s loss, Neil Druckmann, the show’s creator for the upcoming HBO Max series “The Last of Us,” tweeted:
“I recently learned that my close friend Annie Wersching died away. A lovely artist and person passed away just now. My heart has been broken. Her loved ones are in our thoughts.
(Warner Bros. Discovery, the parent company of both CNN and HBO Max, is this firm’s parent.)
In order to help Annie’s husband and kids “continue to live life in a way that they know would make Annie proud,” “Handmaid’s Tale” actress Ever Carradine established a GoFundMe.
Throughout the 2000s and into the 2010s, Wersching frequently made appearances in dramas on television. On the enduring ABC drama “General Hospital,” she portrayed Amelia Joffe in 2007. Her breakthrough performance came in 2008 when she played FBI agent Renee Walker on the popular Fox television series “24,” co-starring with Kiefer Sutherland for the show’s seventh and eighth seasons.
Wersching’s other prominent TV roles include playing the love interest of Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) in the 2014 series “Bosch” on Amazon Prime and appearing frequently as the evil vampire Lily Salvatore in “The Vampire Diaries” on the CW.
Wersching, who played the Borg Queen in “Star Trek Picard” in 2022, routinely posted pictures of herself on set in costume along with notes of appreciation for the prosthetics and makeup specialists who helped her become the extraterrestrial evil. One of the actress’s final reported professional credits on IMDb is her part in “Star Trek Picard,” which airs on Paramount+.
On Sunday, Wersching’s spouse ended his remarks with a sentimental recollection.
She would shout “BYE!” as I drove our boys, who were the genuine loves of her life, down the winding road and street until we were out in public. It’s still ringing in my ears. Goodbye, buddy. I’m so happy you’re my small family.
