  • The sultry Shane West -- a Gemini whose genuine handsomeness is doubly effective in combination with his mesmerizing raspy voice -- made his mark on the Hollywood scene within the realm of teen drama. Beginning with appearances on television shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Picket Fences, West was soon cast as a more permanent staple in teenage tube-life, as well as on the big screen.West was born on June 10, 1978, in Baton Rouge, LA, where he spent his life until he made the decision to pursue an acting career in 1995. Upon moving to L.A., West found much success on dramatic television, landing a starring role on ABC's Once and Again (1999) as Eli Sammler after appearing in the Showtime original movie The Westing Game (1997). A more contemporary rendition of the Cyrano de Bergerac story, Whatever It Takes (2000) featured a book-smart West. He appeared in Dracula in 2000, and made a cameo in the 2001 remake of Ocean's Eleven. Huge publicity surrounding the pop superstar status of Mandy Moore brought West much attention as her love interest in 2002's A Walk to Remember. From the cool crowd, West's character, Landon Carter, learns of matters of a deeper significance during his interaction with Jamie Sullivan (Moore). West's adoring fan base increased in significance as well in his role as sexy and romantic Landon. He joined the cast of ER for that show's final three seasons, and then went on to appear as punk hero Darby Crash in the biopic What We Do Is Secret. He followed that up with The Lodger, Red Sands, and The Presence.

But our love... It's like the wind. I can't see it, but I can feel it.
Landon Carter
I need help with my lines.
Jamie Sullivan
Landon Carter is asking me for help?
Landon Carter
Yeah.
Jamie Sullivan
Okay. I'll pray for you.
Jamie Sullivan
So, would it kill you to try?
Landon Carter
Yep, and I'm too young to die.
Jamie Sullivan
Hey Carter. See you after school?
Landon Carter
In your dreams.
Ms. Garber
Mr. Carter, are you trying to be bad at this?
Landon Carter
Nah, it just comes naturally.
Landon Carter
So, what's your number one?
Jamie Sullivan
To marry in the church my mother grew up. It's where my parents were married.
Eric
Whats with you, man? It's like you don't even have time for your real friends anymore.
Landon Carter
I don't know man, I'm just tired of doing the same old shit everyday.
Eric
This girl is changing you and you don't even know it.
Landon Carter
Hah. Did Belinda say that too?
Eric
No, I did.
Eric
Talk to me man.
Landon Carter
About what?
Eric
About you, about Jamie.
Landon Carter
What's there to talk about? She's the best person I've ever known.
Landon Carter
"Find out who you are, and do it on purpose". That's Dolly Parton.
Jamie Sullivan
I always thought she was smart.
Landon Carter
Can you find this star, right here?
Jamie Sullivan
Sure. So why am I looking for this star?
Landon Carter
Because I had it named for you. See? It's official. It's from the International Star Registry.
Jamie Sullivan
This is wonderful... I love you.
Jamie Sullivan
This is wonderful. I love you.
Jamie Sullivan
You don't know the first thing about being someone's friend.
Landon Carter
I don't want to just be your friend.
Jamie Sullivan
You don't know what you want.
Landon Carter
Neither do you. Maybe you're just too scared that someone might actually want to be with you.
Jamie Sullivan
And why would that scare me?
Landon Carter
Because then you wouldn't be able to hide behind your books, or your frickin' telescope, or your faith. No, no, you know the real reason why you're scared? It's cause you wanna be with me too.
Landon Carter
Jamie, I'm trying here, OK? Maybe... maybe I miss spending time with you. Maybe you inspire me.
Jamie Sullivan
Sounds like bull.
Landon Carter
Which part?
Jamie Sullivan
All of it.
Landon Carter
Well it's not!
Jamie Sullivan
Prove it.
Landon Carter
Jamie, Jamie I can't just be your friend.
Jamie Sullivan
Landon, look, I thought I saw something in you, something good, but I was very wrong.
Jamie Sullivan
So, would it kill you to try?
Landon Carter
Yup, and I'm too young to die.
Jamie Sullivan
Without suffering there would be no compassion.
Landon Carter
Yeah, well tell that to those who suffer.
Dr. Carter
Landon, don't walk away.
Landon Carter
You taught me how.
Jamie Sullivan
How can you see places like this... and have moments like this and not believe?
Jamie Sullivan
How can you see places like this and have moments like this and not believe?
Landon Carter
You're lucky to be so sure.
Jamie Sullivan
It's like the wind. I can't... see it, but I feel it.
Jamie Sullivan
It's like the wind. I can't see it, but I feel it.
Jamie Sullivan
Please don't pretend like you know me, OK?
Landon Carter
But I do, I do. We've had all the same classes in the same school since kindergarten. Why you're Jamie Sullivan. You sit at lunch table 7. Which isn't exactly the reject table, but is definitely in self exile territory. You have exactly one sweater. You like to look at your feet when you walk. Oh, oh, and yeah, for fun, you like to tutor on weekends and hang out with the cool kids from "Stars and Planets". Now how does that sound?
Jamie Sullivan
Thoroughly predictable, nothing I haven't heard before.
Landon Carter
You don't care what people think about you?
Jamie Sullivan
No.
Jamie Sullivan
You have to promise you won't fall in love with me.
Landon Carter
That's not a problem.
Jamie Sullivan
Are you trying to seduce me?
Landon Carter
Why? Are you seducible?
Landon Carter
Jamie saved my life. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. I'll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can't see it, but I can feel it.
Landon Carter
Do you love me?
Jamie Sullivan
*nods*
Landon Carter
Will you do something for me, then?
Jamie Sullivan
Anything.
Landon Carter
Will you marry me?
Landon Carter
Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful.
Jamie Sullivan
No. I found out two years ago and I've stopped responding to treatments.
Landon Carter
So why didn't you tell me?
Jamie Sullivan
The doctor said I should go on and live life normally as best I could. I-- I didn't want anybody to be weird around me.
Landon Carter
Including me?
Jamie Sullivan
Especially you! [She looks down, crying] You know, I was getting along with everything fine. I accepted it, and then you happened! I do not need a reason to be angry with God. [Jamie runs away, and left Landon, tearful.]
Jamie Sullivan
Especially you! You know, I was getting along with everything fine. I accepted it, and then you happened! I do not need a reason to be angry with God.
Landon Carter
Are you scared?
Jamie Sullivan
to death
Jamie Sullivan
To death.
Landon Carter
It's not funny..
Jamie Sullivan
I'm scared of not being with you..
Landon Carter
She makes me want to be different, better
Landon Carter
She makes me want to be different, better.
Jamie Sullivan
You know what I figured out today?
Landon Carter
What?
Jamie Sullivan
Maybe God has a bigger plan for me than I had for myself. Like this journey never ends. Like you were sent to me because I'm sick. To help me through all this. You're my angel.
Tom Sawyer
Boy. They told me European women had funny ways.
Landon Carter
i am sorry that she never got her miracle.
Landon Carter
I am sorry that she never got her miracle.
Rev. Sullivan
She did.It was you.
Rev. Sullivan
She did. It was you.
Landon Carter
I might kiss you
Landon Carter
I might kiss you.
Jamie Sullivan
I might be bad at it
Jamie Sullivan
I might be bad at it.
Landon Carter
Thats not possible
Landon Carter
That's not possible.
Landon Carter
Jamie, I love you.... Now, it would be time to say something.
Landon Carter
Now would be the time to say something.
Jamie Sullivan
I told you not to fall in love with me.
Jamie Sullivan
I told you not to fall in love with me.
Landon Carter
Jamie has faith in me. She makes me want to be different, better.
