Former actress Nicki Aycox, best remembered for playing Meg Masters on Supernatural, passed away on November 16 at the age of 47.
Her sister in law posted a notice of her passing on social media. In a post, she wrote: “My beautiful, smart, fierce, incredibly talented, and loving sister-in-law, Nicki Aycox Raab, passed away yesterday with my brother, Matt Raab, by her side. “Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California.” Aycox’s death has not been given a cause, but leukaemia was discovered more than a year ago. “She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her,” said Susan.
In January and February, “I became really ill believing I had covid,” Aycox stated. “Well things came to a head. I ended up in a hospital diagnosed with Lukemeia. I want everyone to know I’m doing incredibly well and fighting my way thru chemo.”
In her last Instagram post in March Aycox shared a video of herself singing Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” from her hospital bed, along with the caption: #alwayskeepfighting STOP! DO NOT attempt to sing 80’s music after taking high doses of chemo. Will cause memory loss. Literally got not 1 lyric correct”
Creator of Supernatural and The Boys Eric Kripke expressed his “gut-wrenching” reaction to learning about Aycox’s passing in a tribute posted on Twitter. Too young, wrote Kripke. “She was delightful and delivered lines with venom and honey. I’m in awe of how she elevated a common phrase like “lacklustre” to legendary status.”
Apart from the Supernatural series, Nicki appeared in a number of other well-known TV shows, such as Boy Meets World, Cold Case, Law & Order, USA High, Ally McBeal, and The X-Files.
She also had supporting roles in popular movies like Perfect Stranger and Jeepers Creepers 2. She last appeared in a movie in 2014, playing Danielle Williams in Dead On Campus.
