Annie Wersching, actress in ‘Timeless’, ‘Star Trek’ and ’24’, passed away

Known for her performances in 24 and Timeless, Star Trek: Picard, Bosch, and other shows, Annie Wersching passed away at the age of 45, according to PEOPLE.

According to Deadline, Wersching received a cancer diagnosis in 2020. Her representative declined to comment when contacted after Deadline’s initial news report, saying he had “nothing additional to share.”

Stephen Full, the actress’s husband, stated to Deadline, “This family’s soul is currently pierced by a vast void. She did, however, leave us the means to do so. In the most mundane situation, she found wonder. She could dance without any accompaniment. She showed us that adventure doesn’t always find you. “Go locate it. It’s all over. And we’ll locate it.”

Following that, Full said: “She would yell “Bye!” until 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. My friend, goodbye. “I love you, small family…””

Wersching, a mother of three and native of St. Louis, first appeared in movies and television shows like Star Trek: Enterprise, Charmed, and Supernatural before landing a recurring role as Renee Walker in the show 24.

She spent two seasons as a cast member of 24 before moving on to several other television projects throughout her career, including a lead role as Julia Brasher in Bosch from Amazon Studios. In the 2013 PlayStation classic The Last of Us, which has since inspired a successful HBO series of the same name, Wersching contributed motion capture and voice work. On Star Trek: Picard, she most recently performed as the Borg Queen.

Abigail Spencer, who plays her co-star on the television show Timeless, published a touching but sad Instagram message about a friend.

She started her caption with “My dear @anniewersching.” “The ideal scene companion. My eternal arch-enemy, with whom we could hardly maintain a straight face. Our community has suffered a tragic loss as a result. She served as the foundation for many of your and our favorite shows. The caller. Call Annie if you ever needed someone to step in and kick you in the behind, elevate a plot, or be your lifeline. This is very difficult. Steve, words fail me. I’m sending tons of love and support to you and the boys.”

The co-president of Naughty Dog, the developer of the video game The Last of Us, Neil Druckmann, posted a homage to Wersching on Twitter. He wrote, “Just learned my beloved buddy Annie Wersching passed gone.” “We recently lost a wonderful artist and person. My heart is broken. Her loved ones are in our thoughts.”

Druckmann shared a link to a GoFundMe page set up to aid Wersching’s family at the conclusion of his eulogy. Wersching was described in the description of the fundraiser as “a private person by nature” and that her cancer diagnosis in the summer of 2020 exacerbated that. According to the event’s description, the goal of the fundraising is to assist Full in caring for their children, Freddie, 12, Ozzie, 9, and Archie, 4, and “grieve without the strain of needing to work.”

“She wished to safeguard her sons. She desired to recover so that she could carry on working. In all honesty, she just didn’t want to discuss it. She desired to remain with her family and live her life according to her terms “reads the description of the fundraising.
