Actress Nicki Aycox, who starred in the television show “Supernatural,” has died at the age of 47. The actress’s sister-in-law, Susan Raab Ceklosky, confirmed her death in a Facebook post Thursday.
“My beautiful, intelligent, fierce, incredibly talented and loving sister-in-law, Nicki Aycox Raab, passed away yesterday with my brother, Matt Raab, by her side,” the grieving relative wrote. “Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her.”
The post did not reveal Aycox’s cause of death, however the actress had announced that she had been diagnosed with leukemia in an Instagram post in March 2021.
“I got very sick thinking I had covid in January and February. Well things have come to a head,” the TV star wrote alongside a photo of herself in the hospital with her head shaved. “I ended up in a hospital diagnosed with Lukemeia.”
He added: “I want everyone to know that I’m doing incredibly well and fighting my way through chemotherapy. I’ll update with a better photo of myself and talk about staying positive through the worst of times. Take care of everyone! I will come back better, stronger and wiser!”
In her latest Instagram post on March 25, Aycox uploaded a video of herself singing Whitesnake’s song “Here I Go Again” from her hospital bed.
“DO NOT attempt to sing 80s music after taking high doses of chemo,” the caption read. “It will cause memory loss. I literally didn’t get 1 letter right.”
Born May 26, 1975 in Hennessey, Oklahoma, Aycox is perhaps best known for appearing in the dark fantasy television drama “Supernatural” from 2006 to 2008 as Meg Masters, a college student who was possessed by a Lucifer follower.
He also had roles in “Cold Case,” “Law & Order,” “Dark Blue,” “Dark Angel,” “Ally McBeal,” “The X-Files,” and “Boy Meets World.”
Aycox also appeared in several movies, including “Perfect Stranger,” “Jeepers Creepers 2,” “Perfect Stranger,” and “The Girl On The Train.” Her final acting credit was in the 2014 film “Dead on Campus,” in which she played the role of Danielle Williams.
The television industry was devastated by his loss. Eric Kripke, who created “Supernatural” and “The Boys,” lamented Death of Aycox on Twitterwriting:
Gutted to hear the great #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, has passed away. Very young.”
“She was a delight and delivered lines like honey and poison,” he added. “I marvel at how she made a simple word like ‘mediocre’ legendary.”
