’24’ actress Annie Wersching dead at 45 from cancer


Actress Annie Wersching, best known for her role within the TV series “24,” died of cancer, her family said Sunday. She was 45.

“There may be a cavernous hole within the soul of this family today,” Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, told Deadline. “But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the only moment. She didn’t require music to bounce.”

“She taught us not to attend for adventure to search out you. ‘Go find it. It’s in every single place.’ And find it we will,” he said.

Wersching, who had three children with Full, was diagnosed with cancer in 2020, but continued to work while getting treatment, including on the Disney+ show “Star Trek: Picard.”

A GoFundMe launched to support her sons, ages 4, 9 and 12, said Wersching was a personal one who didn’t wish to discuss her diagnosis. It shouldn’t be clear what form of cancer the St. Louis native had.

The director and producer of “24” Jon Cassar told Deadline his “heart is broken in additional pieces than I can count.”
