A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Wersching appeared on dozens of television shows throughout her two-decade career.
His first credit was on “Star Trek: Enterprise,” and he subsequently had recurring roles on the seventh and eighth seasons of “24,” as well as “Bosch,” “The Vampire Diaries,” the Marvel series “Runaways,” “The Rookie,” and most recently in the second season of “Star Trek: Picard,” where she played the Borg Queen.
