Actress Annie Wersching, from “24,” dies at age 45

CNN — According to CNN, the actress Annie Wersching died suddenly early Sunday morning from cancer. 45 years old was Wersching.

Renee Walker, an FBI agent, was her most famous character from the television drama “24.”

Stephen Full, Wersching’s husband, said in a statement to CNN: “There is a vast vacuum in our family now. She did, however, provide us the means to do so. In the most mundane situation, she discovered wonder. She could dance without any accompaniment. She showed us that adventure doesn’t always find you. “Go locate it. It’s all over. And we’ll locate it,” he wrote.

Wersching also contributed Tess’ voice in the video game “The Last of Us.” In a tweet on Wesching’s loss, Neil Druckmann, the creator of the HBO Max series “The Last of Us,” which is based on the game, wrote: “Just found out my good friend, Annie Wersching, died away. We just lost a wonderful artist and person. My heart is broken. The people she loves are in our thoughts.

The “Handmaid’s Tale” actress Ever Carradine started a GoFundMe page in support of Annie’s husband and kids “so they may keep living their lives in a manner that they know would make Annie proud.”

Wersching often made appearances in television dramas from the 2000s through the 2010s. She portrayed Amelia Joffe in 2007 on the enduring ABC soap opera “General Hospital.” In the seventh and eighth seasons of the popular Fox television series “24,” she co-starred with Kiefer Sutherland in the character of FBI agent Renee Walker, which became her breakthrough performance.

Wersching’s other prominent TV roles include playing Lily Salvatore, the evil vampire on “The Vampire Diaries” on the CW, and playing Harry Bosch’s (Titus Welliver’s) love interest in the 2014 Amazon Prime series “Bosch.”

Wersching, who played the Borg Queen in “Star Trek Picard” in 2022, routinely posted pictures of herself on set in costume along with comments of appreciation for the prosthetics and makeup specialists who helped her become the extraterrestrial enemy. On IMDb, Wersching’s part in “Star Trek Picard,” which airs on Paramount+, is noted as one of her last paid work.

On Sunday, Wersching’s spouse wrapped off his remarks with a heartfelt remembrance.

“She would shout BYE! till we were out of sight and into the world as I drove our sons, the genuine joys of her life, down the curving road and street. It’s still ringing, I can hear it. Bye, my friend. Saying “I love you, tiny family”
