Publicist Craig Schneider confirmed that actress Annie Wersching had died early Sunday morning from cancer. In terms of age, Wersching was 45.

She was best known for playing FBI agent Renee Walker in the series “24.”

Stephen Full, Wersching’s husband, issued a statement to CNN:

“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 the adventure to find us. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall,” he wrote.

Tess’s voice in “The Last of Us” video game was likewise provided by Wersching. On Wesching’s death, Neil Druckmann, the showrunner of the upcoming “The Last of Us” TV series on HBO Max, tweeted:

Annie Wersching, a great friend of mine, recently passed away. A truly remarkable creative talent and human being have passed away. The loss has broken my heart. Prayers go out to her family and friends.

Paul Wesley, who worked with Wersching on multiple seasons of The Vampire Diaries, expressed his “deep sadness” over her passing on Twitter, writing, “She was a wonderful and talented person I was lucky enough to know.” He also encouraged followers to contribute to a crowdfunding page set up to help Wersching’s family.

The TV producer Carina Mackenzie stated: “In our shared Vampire Diaries universe, Annie Wersching was always good for a chuckle. She was dynamic, engaging, and glowed while discussing her sons. My deepest condolences go out to her loved ones.”

On Sunday, Wersching’s spouse closed his speech with a heartfelt recollection.

Wesching’s last role was Rosalind Dyer in the ABC crime drama “The Rookie,” starring Nathan Fillion, Alyssa Diaz, and Richard T. Jones.

Wersching is survived by her husband Full and three children: Freddie, 12, Ozzie, 9, and Archie, 4.

“As I drove our boys—her genuine loves—down the winding driveway and street, she’d cry BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. The bell is still ringing in my ears. Goodbye, pal. “‘I love you, little family…'”
