Annie was diagnosed with cancer Summer of 2020. She’s a private person by nature, and the diagnosis made her even more so. She wanted to protect her boys. She wanted to get better so she could continue working. And honestly, she just didn’t really want to talk about it. She wanted to live her life, on her terms, and be with her family.
Actor Annie Wersching, best known for playing FBI agent Renee Walker in the series “24″ and providing the voice for Tess in the video game “The Last of Us,” has died. She was 45.
Wersching passed away Sunday morning in Los Angeles following a battle with cancer, her publicist told The Associated Press. The type of cancer was not specified.
Neil Druckmann, who created “The Last of Us,” wrote on Twitter that
“We just lost a beautiful artist and human being. My heart is shattered. Thoughts are with her loved ones.”Neil Druckmann
Actor Abigail Spencer, who appeared with Wersching on the sci-fi series “Timeless,” tweeted,
“We love you Annie Wersching. You will be deeply missed.”
Her first credit was in “Star Trek: Enterprise,” and she would go on to have recurring roles in the seventh and eighth seasons of “24,” “Bosch,” “The Vampire Diaries,” Marvel’s “Runaways,” “The Rookie” and, most recently, the second season of “Star Trek: Picard” as the Borg Queen.
She also provided the voice and motion capture performance for Tess for the popular video game “The Last of Us.”
Annie lived for her family. She loved her work and cherished her friends, but Steve and the boys were her absolute everything. Freddie (12), Ozzie (9), and Archie (4) as they navigate the future without their mom, without sweet Annie. A GoFundMe page was set up Sunday to support the family.
It’s to help pay for college and so Steve can continue Annie’s tradition of filling the house with every life-sized balloon that’ll fit in the car for birthday mornings.
