Nicki Aycox, who played Meg Masters on the CW series “Supernatural,” died last week, her family announced.
She was 47 years old.
Aycox’s sister-in-law, Susan Raab Ceklosky, revealed the news on Facebook on November 17.
“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,” she wrote. “Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and loved by all who knew her.”
“Supernatural” show creator Eric Kripke took to Twitter to write: “We heard from the great #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, who passed away. Too young. It was a treat and delivered lines like honey and poison.I marvel at how he made a simple word like “gone” legendary.
The cause of death was not disclosed, but Aycox revealed in 2021 that he had been diagnosed with leukemia.
“I want everyone to know that I am doing amazingly well and fighting through chemo,” she wrote at the time.
Aycox shared regular updates on her treatment, revealing her determined spirit, strength and sense of humor.
