Nicki Aycox, who played Meg Masters on the CW series Supernaturaldied Wednesday, according to one Facebook message from her sister-in-law. She was 47.
“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 great life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her,” wrote Susan Raab Ceklosky.
The Oklahoma native went public with her battle with leukemia. In March 2021, Aycox took to Instagramsaying, “I can’t believe my last [three] months. But it makes sense now. I got very sick thinking I had covid in January and February. Well, things came to a head. I ended up in a hospital with the diagnosis [leukemia] I want everyone to know that I am doing incredibly well and making my way through chemo. I’ll update with a better picture of myself and talk about staying positive through the worst of times.
Aycox appeared on Supernatural in 2006 and 2008 as Meg, a demon loyal to Mark Pellegrino’s Lucifer. She also had regular/recurring roles in series like Providence, Ed, over there, Coldcase and Dark blue and appeared in films including Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) and The girl on the train (2014).
“Deeply moved to hear that the wonderful #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, has passed away. Too young,’ says show maker Eric Kripke tweeted Sunday. “She was a delight and delivered lines like honey and poison. I am amazed how she has made a simple word like ‘bland’ legendary.”
Aycox’s manager, Daryn Simons, told The Hollywood Reporter that the actress was treated in City of Hope. “Her strength was incredible,” she said.
