‘Supernatural’ Actress Nicki Aycox Dies at 47

Aycox was previously diagnosed with leukemia in 2021

“Supernatural” star Nicki Aycox died on Nov. 16 at age 47, her family has revealed.

“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,” Aycox’s sister-in-law, Susan Raab Ceklosky, wrote in a Facebook post on Nov. 17. “Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her.”

Though a cause of death was not revealed, Aycox previously disclosed in a March 2021 Instagram post that she was diagnosed with leukemia.

“I became very ill thinking I had covid in Jan and Feb,” Aycox wrote at the time. “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 back in March, Aycox uploaded 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 #cancersucks #chemosucks #aml #cityofhope #highdosechemo #luekemia #chemosideeffects #chemofunny #chemowarrior #cancerwarrior.”

“Gutted to hear the great #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, passed away. Too young,” “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke wrote in a Sunday tweet. “She was a delight & delivered lines like honey & venom. I marvel at how she made a simple word like ‘lackluster’ legendary.”

In addition to her best known role as Meg Masters on the CW Network’s fantasy TV drama, Aycox’s other TV appearances include “Cold Case,” “Law & Order,” “Dark Blue,” “Dark Angel,” “Ally McBeal,” “The X-Files” and “Boy Meets World.” She also appeared in the films “Perfect Stranger” and “Jeepers Creepers 2.”

Her final acting credit was for the 2014 film “Dead on Campus.”
