It’s been revealed that the actress Nicki Aycox Raab, best known for playing the demon Meg Masters on Supernatural, has died at the age of 47. She was diagnosed with leukemia back in 2020 and passed away from the disease on November 16.

Aycox’s sister-in-law Susan Raab Ceklosky confirmed her passing, saying she died with her family including her husband Matt Raab by her side.

“My beautiful, smart, fierce, incredibly talented, and loving sister-in-law, Nicki Aycox Raab, passed away yesterday,” she wrote in a Facebook post.


One of Aycox’s biggest gigs was her recurring role in seasons one and four of Supernatural, but she also appeared in shows and films like The X-Files, Cold Case, Criminal Minds and The Girl on the Train.

One of the creators of Supernatural, Eric Kripke, wrote an online tribute to Aycox. “She was a delight & delivered lines like honey & venom. I marvel at how she made a simple word like ‘lackluster’ legendary,” Kripke said.

Nicki Lynn Aycox was born in Hennessey, Oklahoma on May 26, 1975. She had Native American ancestry and gained an interest in music and acting at a young age. She first got into playing piano, but then started acting on stage and performing in beauty pageants after financial struggles in her family meant they had to sell their piano.

Aycox briefly studied at the University of Oklahoma and Long Beach State but never graduated as her acting career took off before she finished her theater major. Her earliest film roles were in sitcoms like Weird Science and Third Rock From The Sun, but she later became well known in the crime procedural, action and drama genres more than comedy.

She had also recently returned to music after retiring from acting. In 2015, Aycox released the EP Red Velvet Room, which featured five original songs and a gorgeous singing voice from her. Here’s the title track from her album.
