Annie Wersching, best known for portraying FBI agent Renee Walker in the action drama series “24,” has died. She was 45.
The actress died Sunday morning in Los Angeles following a battle with cancer, her publicist confirmed to Page Six.
Wersching’s husband, Stephen Full, also shared the sad news in a statement obtained by Deadline.
“There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it,” the actor stated. “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.”
He continued, “As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’”
Deadline reports that the actress was diagnosed in 2020 – though the type of cancer she was battling has not been specified.
In addition to “24,” Wersching also appeared in shows like “Bosch,” “Timeless,” “The Vampire Diaries,” Marvel’s “Runaways,” “The Rookie” and “Star Trek: Picard.”
Plenty of Wersching’s industry pals took to social media on Sunday to pay tribute to the beloved actress.
“We just lost a beautiful artist and human being. My heart is shattered. Thoughts are with her loved ones,” tweeted Neil Druckmann, who created “The Last of Us,” a video game that featured Wersching’s voice as the role of Tess.
“We love you Annie Wersching. You will be deeply missed,” added Wersching’s former “Timeless” co-star Abigail Spencer.
Wersching is survived by Full, 53, and their two children: Freddie, 12, and Ozzie, 9.
