Die Hard Wiki

Elena Goshkin was Reese Hoffman's secretary at the Roaring 20's Casino and his ally in the plot to take over Las Vegas with Kenny Sinclair and Klaus Von Haug. She was a secondary antagonist in Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas.

Viva Las Vegas[]

As a friend of Kenny Sinclair, she attended the celebration of his new job as warden of the Mesa Grande Prison  with her boss, where she was introduced to John McClane, with whom they discussed Klaus Von Haug, a ruthless terrorist being held at the Mesa Grande. During the party, Von Haug escaped and incited a prison break. McClane, doing what he does best, was quick to jump into action and fight the escaped convicts.

However, all was not as it seemed. Hoffman, Sinclair and Goshkin had all planned the jail break in a scheme to control Las Vegas. When McClane found this out, he became determined to hunt them down.

Goshkin was at the Hoover Dam outside of Vegas with the plan to infect Vegas with virus attached to a bomb that will be released to the water supply. She was confronted by McClane at the dam and engaged him in an explosive shootout, which culminated in Goshkin being launched through a window to her death.



  • At the wallpapers of the Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas, Goshkin's hair was red, but in the actual gameplay, her hair was brown.
