Actress Annie Wersching, known for her role as FBI agent Renee Walker in the series “24” and as the voice of Tess in the video game “The Last of Us”, has died at the age of 45.

Wersching died Sunday morning in Los Angeles after a battle with cancer, her representative told The Associated Press. The type of cancer was not specified.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Wersching appeared on dozens of television shows during her career.

Wershing was diagnosed with cancer in 2020, according to Deadline, but continued to work.
