Nina Patterson is a major antagonist in the first season of the MTV series Scream. Nina was the cruelest mean-girl George Washington High School has ever seen. She has 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 was brutally murdered by Piper Shaw.

She is portrayed by Bella Thorne.


Nina uploaded a video of Audrey Jensen and Rachel Murray kissing passionately in a car. In front of the Patterson house, 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.


Rich, vain and cruel, Nina is a typical snob who boasts about her expensive designer clothing. Reasons for filming her cynical schemes might be, so Nina can relive the moment later for her own personal pleasure, or maybe she can make money from selling them to Lakewood's government officials, and blackmailing them.
