American actress, star of countless hit TV shows, passes away aged just 45

Annie Wersching, the popular American actress who starred in countless hit television shows lost her battle with cancer at the age of 45.


Annie Wersching, the popular American actress with a string of hit television shows to her credit has lost her battle with cancer. The star’s death at the age of only 45 was confirmed today Sunday, January 29, to the Deadline news outlet by her publicist.

“There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. 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”, wrote her husband Stephen Full in a statement.

It is not clear which type of cancer she died from, but after being diagnosed in 2020, Wersching continued taking roles, starring, among other things, ‘The Rookie’, and as the Borg Queen in Season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’. The late actress was also in the video game that was made of ‘The Last of Us’, HBO’s new drama.

Her character of Renee Walker in ’24’ is probably the role that Annie will be most remembered for. She appeared in 35 episodes of the popular series. Other top shows included ‘Dallas’, ‘General Hospital’, ‘Timeless’, ‘Bosch’, ‘Runaways’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Extant’, and many more, in fact, from 2002 onwards she had 48 credits to her name.

“We lost a beautiful soul today, a friend, an incredible talent, and the best mom and wife. @anniewershing you left your mark and you’ll be missed.
