Wesching was diagnosed with cancer back in 2020, but still continued her career in spite of it.

She appeared in several shows following her diagnosis, including Star Trek: Picard, Bosch, and the Rookie.

She is also well-known for her role in the tv series 24 as FBI agent Renee Walker, as well as the voice of Tess in the hit playstation game The Last of Us.

She was only 45-years-old.

A troubling trend of high-profiled deaths among young people in Hollywood and professional sports continues to rock the entertainment world.

The Washington Times reported on the tragic news:

Several of her co-stars gave tributes to Annie.

People shared some of their kind words:

As news of her death circulated, many, including her former costars, shared tributes for Wersching on social media and sending followers to a GoFundMe page set up in her name, which has raised nearly $150,000 in support of her husband, Stephen Full, and their three kids: Freddie, 12, Ozzie, 9, and Archie, 4.
