Annie Wersching (March 28, 1977 – January 29, 2023) was an American actress. She was known for her television roles as Renee Walker in 24, Julia Brasher in Bosch, Emma Whitmore in Timeless, and Rosalind Dyer in The Rookie, as well as the voice and performance-capture for Tess in the video game The Last of Us.
Wersching was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on March 28, 1977. She attended Crossroads College Preparatory School in St. Louis, graduating in 1995. During her youth, she competed in Irish dance and belonged to the St. Louis Celtic Stepdancers group. She received a BFA in musical theatre from Millikin University, from which she graduated in 1999.
Wersching began her acting career with a guest appearance on the show Star Trek: Enterprise and moved on to guest starring roles on such shows as Angel, Charmed, Cold Case, Killer Instinct and Supernatural. From March to November 2007, she played the recurring role of Amelia Joffe on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. She also worked in theaters such as Victory Gardens, Marriott Lincolnshire, and the Utah Shakespearean Festival.
After her two-season stint in 24, Wersching guest starred on various shows, including CSI, NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles, Hawaii Five-0, Body of Proof, Dallas, Revolution, Castle, Blue Bloods, The Vampire Diaries, and Touch.
Wersching played in the 2009 Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game.
In December 2012, it was revealed that in the PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last of Us, Wersching was the voice and motion-capture actor of the character Tess. Her character was teased on Geoff Keighley's Twitter account before she was finally revealed in the story trailer shown on Spike Video Game Awards on December 7, 2012.
In 2014, she was a series regular for the first season of the Amazon Prime crime show Bosch. In 2022, she returned to the Star Trek franchise to play the Borg Queen in the second season of Star Trek: Picard. Between 2019 and 2023, she had a recurring role as Rosalind Dyer in The Rookie.
