We woke up today Monday with very sad news: Annie Wersching has passed away at the age of 45. Stephen Full, the actress’s husband, has been in charge of giving this statement last night, where he points out that the American actress has not been able to overcome the cancer that, unfortunately, she suffered from and that she was diagnosed with in 2020 (and from which she reported herself).
Wersching was now, precisely, on everyone’s lips. The actress had the privilege of playing Tess in the video game The Last of Us. Her performance in the Naughty Dog title was spectacular, hence with the premiere of the HBO series she has returned to the limelight (on television, her role is played by Anna Torv, also masterfully).
But although Tess is now her best-known role, the actress has worked in more than a dozen television series. For example, she played FBI agent Renee Walker in the TV series 24. Likewise, in the fiction Runaways, which is part of the Marvel audiovisual universe, she was in charge of giving life to Leslie Dean.
A GoFundMe for the family
Ever Carradine, a friend of Annie Wersching, has opened a GoFundMe to help the actress’ family. At the age of 45, she leaves behind three children: Freddie (12 years old), Ozzie (9 years old) and Archie (4 years old). Likewise, and as can be read in the statement on the website, the family still needs to pay the remaining medical bills and funeral expenses of the actress, so part of the money will also be dedicated to this problem.
“Everybody loved Annie. Everyone. But beyond how much we loved her, she loved her boys more. Let’s take care of them for her”, reads the end of the text that appears on the web page.
At this moment, the donation process has collected more than $150,000 of the $250,000 that has been set as a goal.
