Annie Wersching, known for her roles as Renee Walker on 24, Tess on The Last of Us video game, and most recently as the Borg Queen on Picard died of cancer on Sunday.

Wersching is survived by her husband Stephen Full, and three children.

Full confirmed the news in a statement, saying “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.’ 

Wersching’s extensive body of work also included Timeless, The Rookie, Bosch, Castle, Supernatural, Frasier and General Hospital among many others.

Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog game developer, and writer on the TV series paid a tribute to Wersching over Twitter.

“Just found out my dear friend, Annie Wersching, passed away,” Druckmann tweeted. “We just lost a beautiful artist and human being. My heart is shattered. Thoughts are with her loved ones.”

Abagail Spencer, who starred alongside Wersching on Timeless added to Instagram: “This is a devastating loss to our community. She was the backbone of many of your favorite shows & ours. The ringer. When you needed someone to come in and kick ass or elevate a story line or your life line: call Annie.”

24 director and producer Jon Cassar added in a statement: “Annie became more than a workmate, she became a real friend to me, my family and every cast and crew member that worked with her. She’ll be truly missed by them and the fans she always found time to interact with. Annie you’ll be missed, you left your mark, and we’re all the better for it.”

A Go Fund Me has been launched to support the family.
