At the age of 45, actress Annie Wersching passed away from cancer early on Sunday morning.
Stephen Full, Wersching’s husband, issued the following statement to the media:
“Right now, there is a huge hole in the soul of this family. But she did leave us the tools to do it. She found wonder in the most commonplace circumstances. Without any music, she could dance. We learned from her that adventure is not always waiting for you. “Go find it. It is finished. And we’ll locate it,” he said.
Additionally, Tess’ voice in the video game “The Last of Us” was provided by Annie Wersching. Following Wesching’s passing, Neil Druckmann, the creator of the upcoming HBO Max series “The Last of Us,” which is based on the game, tweeted:
“I just found out that my dear friend Annie Wersching passed away. A wonderful artist and person recently passed away. My heart is shattered. We think about the people she cares about.
The husband and children of Annie have a GoFundMe page set up by “Handmaid’s Tale” actress Ever Carradine “so they can continue living their lives in a way that they know would make Annie proud.”
Annie Wersching frequently made appearances in television dramas from the 2000s to 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 role of FBI agent Renee Walker, which became her breakthrough performance.
Wersching’s other notable 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, frequently posted pictures of herself on set in costume along with messages of appreciation for the prosthetics and makeup artists who helped her become the extraterrestrial villain. On IMDb, Wersching’s part in “Star Trek Picard,” which airs on Paramount+, is listed as one of her final paid work.
On Sunday, Wersching’s husband wrapped up his remarks with a heartfelt remembrance.
“She would yell BYE! until we were out of sight and into the world as I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street. It’s still ringing, I can hear it. Bye, my friend. Saying “I love you, little family”
