Wersching played the role of Renee Walker during Seasons 7 and 8 of 24. Before being cast as Renee Walker, Wersching auditioned for the role of Nadia Yassir in season 6, but lost out to Marisol Nichols. She was a last-minute casting decision and had only four days of gun training prior to shooting her first few episodes. She performed many other stunts for her first season such as parts of the scene where she was buried by Jack Bauer, the river escape and fight sequence with Laurent Dubaku (coordinated with Erik Stabenau) and the scene in the finale where she held onto the side of an FBI jeep and then jumped off, which she did without sustaining any injuries or scratches whatsoever.
