Annie Wersching, who starred in the TV series “24 hours”, “Timeless” and “Bosch”, has died at the age of 45.
This news was confirmed today (January 29) by her publicist. In 2020, Wersching was diagnosed with cancer, but all this time he continued to work, playing roles in Star Trek: Picard as the Borg Queen in the second season and The Newcomer. She also appeared in the new HBO drama The Last of Us.
Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, issued a statement after her death. It said: “Today, a gaping hole has formed in the soul of this family. But she left us the tools to fill it out. She found a miracle in the simplest moment. She didn’t need music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. — Go find it. He’s everywhere.” And we’ll find him.
“When I led our boys, the true lovers of her life, along the winding road and street, she screamed BYE! until we were out of earshot and in the world. I can still hear it ringing. Goodbye, my Buddy. “I love you, little family…”
After the news of her death, tributes to Vershing poured in on social networks.
John Cassar, director and producer of the film “24 hours”, said: “My heart is broken into more pieces than I can count. Annie entered my world with an open heart and an infectious smile. Brandishing such a talent took my breath away.
“Annie has become more than a work partner, she has become a true friend for me, my family and every actor and crew member who worked with her. They and the fans, with whom she always found time to communicate, will miss her very much. Annie, you will be missed, you have left your mark, and it only makes us feel better” (via Deadline).
