In one of the most devastating news coming from the entertainment industry, Nicki Aycox, best known for her role in the blockbuster series ‘Supernatural’, died at the age of 47. The news of her death was confirmed by her sister-in-law on social media and paid a touching tribute to the star, which was posted on Friday, November 18.
Aycox’s sister-in-law, Susan Raab Ceklosky, took to her official Facebook account and paid a tribute to the actor by sharing some photos on the social media platform. Along with the photos, she wrote that Aycox was a ‘fighter’ and everyone loved him dearly. The caption read, “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. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her.”
According to her post, it seems that the 'Supernatural' actor died on November 16. However, Ceklosky didn’t share a cause of the death, but fans speculate that it has to do something with Leukemia. In March 2021, the actor revealed on Instagram that she was diagnosed with Leukemia in March 2021. At the time, Aycox noted that she got really ill and believed that she had Covid-19 in January and February of 2021. However, later she found out that she had leukemia and was admitted to the hospital for treatment.
“I became very ill thinking I had Covid in January and February. Well, things came to a head. I ended up in a hospital, diagnosed with Leukemia. I want everyone to know I’m doing incredibly well and fighting my way thru chemo. I will update with a better pic of myself, and talk about staying positive thru the worst of times,” Aycox wrote on the image-sharing platform.
On 26th March, she uploaded her last post on Instagram where she can be lying on the bed and singing Whitsnake’s hit song ‘Here I Go Again’ while taking chemotherapy. She used the hashtag “#alwayskeepfighting” to let everyone know that she won’t back down and will defeat leukemia.
The news of her death sent shockwaves all over social media and fans flooded the internet with a lot of emotional tributes. One of the fans wrote, “It's a sad day in the #Supernatural world. Today we lost Nicki Aycox, the original Meg Masters. R.I.P. Nicki.” Another fan noted, “That's horrible! So sad! She played an excellent Meg. She will be missed!” Another social media user tweeted, “I am really sad to learn of the death of this superb actress that was Nicki Aycox. My thoughts and condolences to his family. Rest In Peace.”
