OPINION | This article contains commentary that reflects the author's opinion.

Actress Nicki Aycox passed away at age 47.

She was known for her roles in Supernatural, Cold Case, Jeepers Creepers 2, Perfect Stranger, and The X-Files.

No cause of death was released. “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,” Susan Raab Ceklosky said.

“Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her,” the statement added.

Aycox was diagnosed with leukemia last year so the disease likely led to her death. She previously had undergone chemotherapy.

“Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke responded, “Gutted to hear the great #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, passed away. Too young.”

“She was a delight & delivered lines like honey & venom. I marvel at how she made a simple word like ‘lackluster’ legendary.”
