Star Trek: Picard and Runaways Actress Annie Wersching Dies at 45

Annie Wersching, who is known for her roles in beloved TV shows such as Star Trek: Picard, Runaways, 24, Bosch, and Timeless, has passed away at the age of 45 due to cancer. Her death was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter through a statement by her husband Stephen Full released by her rep.

"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.’ And find it we shall," Full wrote paying tribute to his late wife.

"As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…'"
