Nina Patterson is an antagonist in the first season of the MTV series Scream.

She is portrayed by Bella Thorne.


Nina, otherwise known as Lakewood's notorious “Mean Queen” is considered; the cruelest mean-girl George Washington High School’s ever seen. She’s blackmailed her peers, her teachers, her advisors and really anyone who has a lot of money or secrets to hide. Her accomplices in her schemes have included jocks like; her ex-boyfriend Tyler O'Neill, Jake Fitzgerald, and Will Belmont. Nina’s not in favor of collecting a wide group of friends. She prefers loyal followers or those less fortunate to act as her friends.

However, Nina is not the traditional mean-girl. Nina is either murdered by Piper Shaw or Kieran Wilcox.


In front of the Patterson house, Nina sits in the passenger seat, while her ex-boyfriend, Tyler, sat in the driver's side. Nina announced excitedly, glad her plan was going well. Nina rejects Tyler from coming inside her house.

After Nina changes into a bikini, she receives numerous Snapchat images of herself and threatening texts from Tyler's phone. After relaxing in the hot tub, Nina witnesses Tyler's severed head in the water. A panicked Nina tries going inside her house, but the doors are all locked. She gets horizontally slashed across the back and has her throat slit with a hunting knife by a Killer. Nina gets thrown into the swimming pool.
