After being diagnosed with a deadly sickness in 2020, Annie Wersching lost the battle with cancer and died at the age of 45.
Among the other TV projects Annie Wersching was working on, she was most recognised in the gaming industry for her role as Tess in The Last of Us , the girlfriend of the game's protagonist Joel, played by Troy Baker. Troy bid farewell to his colleague in an emotional statement shared on his Twitter account:
"Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you are grateful for the simple gift of knowing them. Annie, so much of Tess is what you imbued into the character. Your strength is her strength and in some way, you live on in not only her but the many roles you brought to life."
Annie did not appear in HBO's The Last of Us TV series, but she did get to experience the series debut and the live-action of her character, who is one of the most memorable in the whole The Last of Us franchise.
Her first significant role was in General Hospital as Amelia Joffe. She later appeared as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24. Wersching has also appeared in episodes of The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, Timeless, Bosch, and The Rookie. Despite being diagnosed with cancer three years ago, Annie did not give up and worked on a variety of projects. Her final project before her death was her role in Star Trek: Picard.
