Reports are coming in that actress Annie Wersching has died at the age of 45.
According to Deadline, Wersching was diagnosed with cancer back in 2020 and chose to continue to work right up until her death. Her husband, actor Stephen Full, issued the following statement on his wife's passing.
"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 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. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. 'I love you little family...'"
Wersching will probably be best known to Marvel fans as Leslie Dean on the short-lived Runaways series, but she has appeared in numerous projects over the years, including 24, Bosch, Star Trek: Picard, and Timeless. She also provided the voice and motion-capture for Tess in The Last of Us video game.
Wersching s survived by her husband and their three sons Freddie, Ozzie and Archie. A GoFundMe page has been set up to support her family.
