Zombieland Wiki

Nevada, later identified by the more specific alias Reno, is a secondary character and Tallahassee's love interest in Zombieland: Double Tap. She is portrayed by Rosario Dawson.


Husky, Nevada is a fit woman in her late 30s or early 40s. She typically wears well made, darker clothes such as a leopard print jacket and dark jeans.


Nevada has a very forceful personality, readily taking out her guns when perceived threats are nearby, but also a sense of loyalty to those she likes as evidenced by her rescue of Tallahassee. She is obsessed with Elvis and is fond of Bill Murray, having built a shrine for Elvis and harboring an especial hatred for whoever killed Murray. Nevada also takes a liking to masculine men who visit her, having slept with Albuquerque on several occasions and moving on to Tallahassee when they met each other.

In Zombieland: Double Tap[]

Little Rock and Berkeley passed through Nevada's home on their way to Babylon, discarding their car there for being "too establishment". Tallahassee, Wichita, and Columbus arrived later, and Nevada nearly "Murrayed" them, to kill a real person who you mistook for a zombie. After interrogating Tallahassee, they bonded over their mutual love of Elvis and slept together.

The next day, Albuquerque and Flagstaff arrived and crushed Tallahassee's car with a monster truck. Albuquerque and Tallahassee then argued over Nevada's "driveway", but it became quickly apparent that they were talking about having sex with her. Nevada said she'd ban them both from her "driveway" if they didn't stop bickering, at which point they both rapidly became polite to each other.

Several T-800 zombies arrived shortly afterward, with Albuquerque and Flagstaff electing to fight them alone. When they returned after their victory, Nevada noticed Albuquerque had a zombie bite on his wrist, and they both turned into T-800s themselves shortly afterward, with Nevada helping to kill them. Nevada then bid Tallahassee farewell, and welcomed him back whenever he liked.

At the end of the movie when Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock were surrounded on all sides by zombies, Nevada arrived in Albuquerque's monster truck at just the right time. Everyone piled into the truck, and Nevada proceeded to lay waste to the zombie horde, spinning and flipping the truck to crush vast quantities of zombies beneath the truck's massive wheels.

Eventually the truck tipped over, so Nevada fled with the others into the tower at Babylon and formed part of the barrier that funneled the zombies off the edge of the tower to their deaths. When Tallahassee was brought safely back to the tower, Nevada celebrated with everyone and revealed her city name to Tallahassee, Reno.
