On Sunday, the family of Annie Wersching announced that the 45-year-old beloved actress best known for her role in “24” had passed away due to cancer.

“There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today,” Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full said. “But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance.”

“She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall,” added.

Even when diagnosed with cancer in 2020, Wersching, who had three kids alongside Full, refused to stop working and proceeded to work on the critically acclaimed Disney+ show “Star Trek: Picard” while undergoing treatment.

Wersching, a St. Louis native who refrained from discussing her cancer diagnosis, was the subject of a GoFundMe to help support her three sons ages 4, 9, and 12. The type of cancer she had remains unknown.

Jon Cassar, the renowned director and producer of “24”, said his “heart is broken in more pieces than I can count.”

“Annie came into my world with an open heart and a contagious smile. Brandishing such talent, she took my breath away,” he stated. “Annie became more than a workmate, she became a real friend to me, my family, and every cast and crew member that worked with her.”

Annie Wersching portrays the role of FBI agent Renee Walker in the 7th and 8th seasons of the acclaimed TV series “24”.

Wersching has made her mark on the video game industry with her career-defining voice work in “The Last of Us”, which has been adapted into a gripping HBO series. She also left an impact in the gaming world by leading characters within “Anthem,” one of the most popular games today.
