Several of Aycox’s roles will make her remain engraved in our memory. She made some appearances in successful series of the ’90s, such as Law & Order, X-Files, Ally McBeal, Criminal Minds, and Boy Meets World. But one of her standout roles was in the war miniseries Over There, created by 10-time Emmy Award winner Steve Boncho. There she played the soldier Brenda, who was present in 11 out of 13 episodes.
Also, in Cold Case, from 2004 to 2012, she appeared in no less than 12 episodes as Christina Rush, the sister of the series’ protagonist. Similarly, the recurring role performed in the fantasy and horror series, Supernatural, appeared in five episodes.
Among the outstanding films in which she appeared were The X-Files: I Want to Believe, Perfect Stranger, The Girl on the Train, and Jeepers Creepers 2. Her last scene in a movie was in 2014’s The Deadly Test. From there she retired from acting, devoting herself to music, leaving five songs performed and composed by her.
By 2020, sadly, Nicki Aycox was diagnosed with leukemia. At the time, she shared with her fans how she was coping with the disease and everything related to chemotherapy. A condition that we presume claimed her life at such a young age. Although she was awaiting a stem cell transplant, we do not know what happened. For all of us who enjoyed Nicki’s work, fans, friends, and family, we are sorry for her departure. Rest In Peace, Nicki.
