Actress Annie Wershing, best known for her roles in TV series 24, Bosch and Timeless, died of cancer early Sunday morning, the Hollywood Webzine’s “Deadline” reported. She was 45 years old.
She continued to tour even after her cancer diagnosis in 2020, with prominent roles in Star Trek: Picard as the Borg Queen in Season 2, and The Rookie. She also lent her voice to Tess in the popular video game The Last Of Us, which has been made into a TV series by HBO.
Actor Stephen Full, husband of Annie Werching, said in a statement: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest of moments. You didn’t need music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. Go.” And look for it. It’s everywhere. And we’ll find it.”
Born and raised in St. Louis, her first big role was as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital. She went on to star as Renee Walker in seasons seven and eight of 24. She also had notable roles in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, Timeless, Bosch, and The Rookie that mentions Deadline magazine.
A GoFundMe was launched to support her husband and two children Freddie, 12, and Ozzie and Archie, 4.
