Annie Wersching is an American television actress. She is known best for portraying special agent Renee Walker on FOX's hit drama, "24," as well as Amelie Joffe on the soap opera, "General Hospital," in 2007.
Anne "Annie" Wersching was born on March 28, 1977 in St. Louis, Missouri. Growing up, she attended high school at Crossroads College Preparatory School in the Central West End of St. Louis. It was during this time that she took up an interest in Irish dance, eventually joining the St. Louis Celtic Stepdancers. From here, it was off to college, where she attended and earned her degree from Millikin University, majoring in musical theatre.
Of course, while she may have been interested in musical theatre, Annie's degree only played a small role in her future career, as most of her work since has not involved music. She first started out in show business with a small role on the TV series, "Star Trek: Enterprise," in 2002. From there, she continued to land small guest roles on series such as "Frasier," "Boston Legal," and "Supernatural" before being cast in a recurring role on the hit soap opera, "General Hospital," in 2007.
It's seems that a little exposure in Hollywood generally begets bigger exposure, as merely two years after her stint on "General Hospital," Annie was cast in the role of a lifetime as the love interest to Jack Bauer, played by actor Kiefer Sutherland, on FOX's "24," where she starred for two seasons. While she has since been able to continue attaining steady work on series such as "Dallas," "Revolution, and "Extant," it was her role on "24" that put her on the map, and one she will surely be remembered for the rest of her long and fruitful career.
