Actress Annie Wersching died of cancer early Sunday morning, her publicist Craig Schneider told CNN. Wersching was 45 years old.

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

Wersching’s husband, Stephen Full, released 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 need music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And we will find it,” he wrote.

Wersching also provided the voice of Tess in “The Last of Us” video game. Neil Druckmann, the creative director of the new HBO Max series “The Last of Us” based on the game, tweeted on the death of Westing:

“I have just learned that my dear friend, Annie Wersching, has passed away. We have just lost a beautiful artist and human being. My heart is broken. Thoughts are with his loved ones.

In 2007, she played Amelia Joffe on the ABC soap opera “General Hospital.” Her breakout role came in 2008 when she played FBI agent Renee Walker on the hit Fox show “24,” alongside Kiefer Sutherland throughout the seventh and eighth seasons.

Portraying the Borg Queen in 2022’s “Star Trek Picard,” Wersching frequently shared photos of herself in full costume along with messages of gratitude for the makeup and prosthetics artists who turned her into an intergalactic villain. Wersching’s role in “Star Trek Picard,” which aired on Paramount+, is listed as one of the actress’ last professional credits on IMDb.

Wersching’s husband concluded his statement with a touching memory on Sunday.

“As I led our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding alley and street, she was screaming GOODBYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I hear her ringing again. Goodbye buddy. ‘I love you little family…'”
