Who did Amber Heard play in Zombieland?

Amber Heard was still relatively early on in her Hollywood career when she made an appearance in 2009 movie Zombieland. After starring in a handful of TV shows in 2004 and 2005, the star made her way into the movie industry between 2007 and 2009.

Heard played 406, Columbus’ crush and apartment complex neighbour.

Although 406 seems normal on the surface, the character has been attacked by a zombie so, when in Columbus’ apartment, she also turns into a zombie. It turns out to be Columbus’ first ever encounter with a zombie, and it only spirals from there.

Bill Murray, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin also star in the film, alongside Avan Jogia and Luke Wilson.

Zombieland scored 89 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes (Tomatometer) and 86 per cent on the audience score. You can watch the movie in full on Prime Video or Apple TV.

Fans remember Amber Heard’s Zombieland feature

While some Zombieland fans are only just connecting the dots, others have known Heard played 406 for years.

“Remember when Amber was in Zombieland lol,” one person tweeted.

“Omg totally forget Amber Heard was in Zombieland!” another wrote.
