Annie Wersching, who was best known for her work in the television series 24 and the video game The Last of Us, passed away early morning on January 29 after a battle with cancer, according to her publicist. The actress was 45 when she died. Following Wersching's tragic passing, her husband Stephen Full made an impassioned statement to the media.
It read, “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.”
Neil Druckmann, the creator of the upcoming HBO Max series based on the video game The Last of Us, posted a note of sorrow and sympathies on his social media account. He tweeted, “Just found out my dear friend, Annie Wersching, passed away. We just lost a beautiful artist and human being. My heart is shattered. Thoughts are with her loved ones.”
