Actor Annie Wersching, best known for her portrayal of FBI agent Renee Walker on episode 24, has died at the age of 45.

Wersching died Sunday morning in Los Angeles after a battle with cancer.

Her husband, Stephen Full, father of three sons, confirmed the news in a statement released to US news outlets.

“There is a huge hole in the soul of this family today.

“But she left us the tools to fill it. She discovered miracles in the simplest of moments.

“She didn’t need music to dance to. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ We’ll find it.

“If I drive our kids, the love of her life, down winding driveways and streets, she’ll yell goodbye! Until we’re out of earshot and out into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Goodbye , my partner.” I love your little family…”
