DEAR STACY: I’ve never before seen Annie Wersching, currently playing an FBI agent on “24.” Can you tell me about her? I think she’s terrific, and would hope to see more of her. – Ben S., Bayville, NY
DEAR BEN: Wersching knew she wanted to be a performer at an early age. As her website puts it, “she crawled around as a Jellicle cat in ‘Cats’ in fourth grade and never looked back.’ She also competed in Irish step dance. She has a degree in musical theater from Millikin University. After college she moved to Chicago for a spell, and toured with several shows before relocating to Los Angeles, where she began landing guest roles on episodic series including “Star Trek: Enterprise,” “Charmed” and “Supernatural.” She did a recurring gig on “General Hospital” in 2007. The 32-year-old actress lists among her special abilities: face contortionist, tin whistle and burp on cue.
