She starred in the series “24” and “Star Trek: Picard”. She also lent her voice to a popular video game. Annie Wersching has died at the age of 45.
The American actress Annie Wersching is dead. She died on Sunday (local time) at the age of 45, the US broadcaster CNN reported, citing her husband Stephen Full and her publicist Craig Schneider. “There is a huge hole in the soul of this family, but they left us the means to fill it,” Fulls said in a brief statement. The cause of death was given as cancer.
Wersching appeared in dozens of TV series in her career. In addition to “Star Trek: Enterprise”, later also “Star Trek Picard”, she was also seen in “Bosch” and “General Hospital”. One of her most famous roles was that of FBI agent Renee Walker on the series “24”.
Former companions said goodbye to the actress on social media and condoled to her family. “The world lost a light today,” wrote “24” star Kiefer Sutherland (56) on Twitter. Wersching was one of the greatest actresses he had ever worked with.
Neil Druckmann, developer of the video game “The Last of Us”, in which the 45-year-old had a speaking role, thought Wersching: “Annie, you left us far too soon.”
Druckmann and actress Jeri Ryan (54) (“Stark Trek: Picard”) called for donations to the family of the deceased. A campaign for Wersching’s sons was launched on the GoFundMe page – after 13 hours, over 135,000 dollars (about 124,000 euros) were raised there. (dpa)
