Nicole Elizabeth Reed (born January 17, 1988 in Los Angeles, California, USA), better known as Nikkie Reed, is a teenaged movie actress, producer and writer. She is the daughter of Seth Reed. Her nickname is "Nik". Reed was born in west Los Angeles.
Before the movie was made, Reed had had her share of wild moments as a teenaged girl. She was approached by another writer, the well known Catherine Hardwick to play Evie, a Hispanic, in the movie which would later on earn Holly Hunter a nomination for an Oscar award as Best supporting actress. Hardwick wanted to make a movie that reflected parts of her own life as a teenager. Apparently unknown to her, Reed's life had been similar to hers.
Thirteen was still unwritten, and the two of them set to write the script for the movie. As it turns out, the cooperative writing of the semibiographical film was done in only six days, a relatively fast time for a Hollywood script to be written.
Thirteen, it can be said, gave Reed a name in Hollywood: for many years, Reed had unsuccessfully attempted at becoming an actress. Not only did she participate in the film, but, soon after, she was cast on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she played herself on the September 15, 2003 broadcast. She also hosted a number of award shows in 2003 and 2004, including the Young Hollywood Awards (2003), and the Independent Spirits Awards Nomination Show, followed by the West Independent Spirits Awards, both in 2004.
In 2005, she appeared in four movies, two of which have already been released at theaters. Man of God, where she plays Zane Berg, and Lords of Dogtown, where she plays Kathy Alva, have already been released. Meanwhile, Mimi's First Time, where she plays Mimi, and American Gun, where she plays Tally, are on their post-production period and have not been released as of yet.
Her debut as film producer is scheduled for 2006, when, at the age of eighteen, she will become, arguably, one of Hollywood's youngest producers in history. She will be the executive producer of a movie named Invincible
