Annie Wersching Visits Millikin University

Annie Wersching visited her old college Millikin University for Homecoming weekend back in October and thanks to Millikin Quarterly we have pictures and information on her visit.

Wersching led a “Career Connections” session for eager-to-learn students during Homecoming weekend while on a short break from her filming schedule. Both actresses shared the gift of their knowledge and reflected on how their Millikin experiences have prepared them well for the careers they now pursue.

In a whirlwind visit worthy of FBI agent Renee Walker, the character she portrays on FOX-TV’s series “24,” actress Annie Wersching ’99 flew in for Homecoming weekend in October to reconnect with her former classmates and professors. During her visit, Wersching shared insights of the acting business with current theatre students during one of several Homecoming “Career Connections” presentations made by alumni working in various careers. Wersching will reprise her co-starring role in season eight of “24,” which premieres Jan. 17. At right, Wersching and President Doug Zemke ’66 during her visit to campus.
