Stephen Full, Wersching’s husband, has released a message. “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.

Director and executive producer Jon Cassar of 24 also paid his tribute. “My heart is broken in more pieces than I can count. Annie came into my world with an open heart and a contagious smile. Brandishing such talent, she took my breath away. Annie became more than a workmate, she became a real friend to me, my family and every cast and crew member that worked with her. She’ll be truly missed by them and the fans she always found time to interact with. Annie you’ll be missed, you left your mark, and we’re all the better for it.”

Annie Wersching grew up in St. Louis with his parents, Sandy and Frank. Her appearance as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital was her first significant acting job.
