Actress Annie Wersching is dead at the age of 45. The Hollywood actress died on Sunday morning, her publicist confirmed.
Wersching died relatively young after a battle with cancer. The actress was diagnosed with cancer in 2020. The type of cancer was not specified.
Her husband, fellow actor Stephen Full, shared a statement regarding his wife’s death.
“There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it,” Full said in the statement. “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.”
“As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell ‘BYE!’ until we were out of earshot and into the world,” the grieving father wrote. “I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…'”
Jon Cassar, director and executive producer of “24,” paid tribute to Wersching:
My heart is broken in more pieces than I can count. Annie came into my world with an open heart and a contagious smile. Brandishing such talent, she took my breath away. Annie became more than a workmate, she became a real friend to me, my family and every cast and crew member that worked with her. She’ll be truly missed by them and the fans she always found time to interact with. Annie you’ll be missed, you left your mark, and we’re all the better for it.
