Actor Annie Wersching, best known for playing FBI agent Renee Walker in the series 24 has died at the age of 45.
Wersching died on Sunday morning in Los Angeles following a battle with cancer.
Her husband and the father of her three sons, Stephen Full, confirmed the information in a statement made available to US news organizations.
“This family's soul has a vast hole in it right now.
“However, she gave us the equipment to fill it. In the most mundane situation, she found wonder.
She could dance without music. She showed us that adventure doesn't always find you. “Go locate it. It's all over. And we'll find it.
“She would yell BYE! till we were out of sight and into the world as I drove our boys, the genuine loves of her life, down the curving road and street. It's still ringing, I can hear it. Bye, my friend. Saying “I love you, little family”
According to the Hollywood news site Deadline, Wershing received a cancer diagnosis in 2020 but remained working and doing what she loved.
Diana 24 co-star Kiefer Sutherland paid tribute to her, calling her one of the best actors he'd ever worked with and noting that the world had “lost a light” with her passing.
She shared screen time with Titus Welliver in the television series Bosch. He simply said: “Words are absent. Thank you, Annie.”
In the video game The Last Of Us, Wersching provided Tess' voice.
Author Neil Druckmann said the following on Twitter: “We recently lost a wonderful artist and person. My heart is broken. Her loved ones are in our thoughts.”
The Timeless sci-fi series co-star Wersching and actor Abigail Spencer wrote, “You are so loved, Annie Wersching. We will miss you terribly.”
