Titan Publishing has passed along an interview excerpt of Nicky Aycox (Meg Masters) from the latest issue of Supernatural Magazine. Actress Nicky Aycox tells all about returning to Supernatural in season four as a now-ghostly Meg Masters.
“I swear, after everything I heard about you Winchesters, I’ve got to tell you, I’m a little underwhelmed. First, Johnny tries to pawn off a fake gun, and then he leaves the real gun with you two chuckleheads. Lackluster, man. I mean, did you really think I wouldn’t find you?”
That’s Nicki Aycox’s favorite Meg Masters quote from Supernatural, especially the “lackluster” part. So it’s a good thing her performance as Mrs. B. on the TV series Over There was far from lackluster. When Kim Manners directed an episode that focused on her character, it was the relationship they built on that set that led the future Supernatural executive producer and director to personally select Aycox for the role of the demon-possessed Meg Masters.
“I really enjoyed working with Kim, because he’s a very straightforward, honest man and an easy person to understand,” Aycox reveals. “He could make himself very clear, tell you exactly what he wanted, how he wanted it to look, and I really admired that, so we became friends who really like to work together in an artistic way. He’s been a mentor [in that regard] ever since.”
Aycox’s character, Meg, has been a fan favorite ever since she appeared in the season one episode Scarecrow. But even she didn’t know what she was in for back then. “I knew that I was going to be [on] for more than one episode, but we really just felt our way through it… We just knew it was gonna go until we felt the storyline had come to an end.” Meg Masters’ appearance in the season four episode Are You There God? It’s Me… Dean Winchester proves there’s never a true end to a character on Supernatural. So far, Aycox has played a human, a demon, and a ghost– could zombie Meg be next?
