Wershing’s husband, Stephen Full, confirmed the star’s death Sunday in a statement on social media, revealing that the star had lost a bout with the debilitating illness.
“There is a cavernous hole in the spirit of this family today,” wrote Bean, who is also an actor and has three school-age children with the actress.
“But she left us the tools to fill it in,” he added. “I found amazement at the slightest moment.”
The widower continued to promote his wife’s legacy and high-profile personality.
“She didn’t need music to dance,” the 53-year-old wrote. You taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And we will come back to find it.

John Cassar, who served as director for Wersching during his stint on the popular Fox 24 drama series, also took to Twitter to remember his fallen girlfriend, who he said has already “made its mark.”
“My heart is more broken than I can count,” wrote Kassar, 64, who served as a director and producer on the show’s first seven seasons.
He continued, “Annie came into my world with an open heart and an infectious smile.” I cheered for this talent, and it took my breath away.
Annie became more than just a co-worker, she became a true friend to me, my family, and all the cast and crew members who worked with her.

Wersching began her acting career over two decades ago at the age of 24, quickly making a name for herself with small appearances but notable roles on shows like General Hospital and Supernatural.
Eventually in 2009, the actress got her big break playing Renee in Kassar’s long-running series 24, which catapulted her to television stardom.
She would go on to grace several other high-profile shows — including CSI, Blue bloods, and 2013’s Dallas Remake — with guest spots, before landing long-running roles on shows like Castle and The Vampire Diaries.
Then, in 2013, Wersching would play another iconic role that saw her earn cult status – lending her voice to the character Tess in the hit video game The Last of Us. The game has since been adapted into a TV show starring Pedro Pascal.
