LOS ANGELES — Actress Annie Wersching, who had roles in the television dramas “24″ and “Bosch,” died Sunday in Los Angeles. She was 45.
Wersching died after a two-year battle with cancer, a representative for the actress told The Hollywood Reporter. Her death was also confirmed through a GoFundMe campaign that was started to receive financial support for the actress’ family, Variety reported.
In a statement, her husband, Stephen Full, paid tribute to the mother of their three children.
“There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it,” Full said in a statement. “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.’ And find it we shall.”
