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.

Landon Carter says: In your dreams.

Ms. Garber says: Mr. Carter, are you trying to be bad at this?

Landon Carter says: Nah, it just comes naturally.

Landon Carter says: So, what's your number one?

Jamie Sullivan says: To marry in the church my mother grew up. It's where my parents were married.

Eric says: Whats with you, man? It's like you don't even have time for your real friends anymore.

Landon Carter says: I don't know man, I'm just tired of doing the same old shit everyday.

Eric says: This girl is changing you and you don't even know it.

Landon Carter says: Hah. Did Belinda say that too?

Eric says: No, I did.

Eric says: Talk to me man.

Landon Carter says: About what?

Eric says: About you, about Jamie.

Landon Carter says: What's there to talk about? She's the best person I've ever known.

Landon Carter says: "Find out who you are, and do it on purpose". That's Dolly Parton.

Jamie Sullivan says: I always thought she was smart.

Landon Carter says: Can you find this star, right here?

Jamie Sullivan says: Sure. So why am I looking for this star?

Landon Carter says: Because I had it named for you. See? It's official. It's from the International Star Registry.

Jamie Sullivan says: This is wonderful... I love you.

Jamie Sullivan says: This is wonderful. I love you.

Jamie Sullivan says: You don't know the first thing about being someone's friend.

Landon Carter says: I don't want to just be your friend.

Jamie Sullivan says: You don't know what you want.

Landon Carter says: Neither do you. Maybe you're just too scared that someone might actually want to be with you.

Jamie Sullivan says: And why would that scare me?

Landon Carter says: 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 says: Jamie, I'm trying here, OK? Maybe... maybe I miss spending time with you. Maybe you inspire me.

Jamie Sullivan says: Sounds like bull.

Landon Carter says: Which part?

Jamie Sullivan says: All of it.

Landon Carter says: Well it's not!

Jamie Sullivan says: Prove it.

Landon Carter says: Jamie, Jamie I can't just be your friend.

Jamie Sullivan says: Landon, look, I thought I saw something in you, something good, but I was very wrong.

Jamie Sullivan says: So, would it kill you to try?

Landon Carter says: Yup, and I'm too young to die.

Jamie Sullivan says: Without suffering there would be no compassion.

Landon Carter says: Yeah, well tell that to those who suffer.

Dr. Carter says: Landon, don't walk away.

Landon Carter says: You taught me how.

Jamie Sullivan says: How can you see places like this... and have moments like this and not believe?

Jamie Sullivan says: How can you see places like this and have moments like this and not believe?

Landon Carter says: You're lucky to be so sure.

Jamie Sullivan says: It's like the wind. I can't... see it, but I feel it.

Jamie Sullivan says: It's like the wind. I can't see it, but I feel it.

Jamie Sullivan says: Please don't pretend like you know me, OK?

Landon Carter says: 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 says: Thoroughly predictable, nothing I haven't heard before.

Landon Carter says: You don't care what people think about you?

Jamie Sullivan says: No.

Jamie Sullivan says: You have to promise you won't fall in love with me.

Landon Carter says: That's not a problem.

Jamie Sullivan says: Are you trying to seduce me?

Landon Carter says: Why? Are you seducible?

Landon Carter says: 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 says: Do you love me?

Jamie Sullivan says: *nods*

Landon Carter says: Will you do something for me, then?

Jamie Sullivan says: Anything.

Landon Carter says: Will you marry me?

Landon Carter says: 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 says: No. I found out two years ago and I've stopped responding to treatments.

Landon Carter says: So why didn't you tell me?

Jamie Sullivan says: 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 says: Including me?

Jamie Sullivan says: 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 says: 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 says: Are you scared?

Jamie Sullivan says: to death

Jamie Sullivan says: To death.

Landon Carter says: It's not funny..

Jamie Sullivan says: I'm scared of not being with you..

Landon Carter says: She makes me want to be different, better

Landon Carter says: She makes me want to be different, better.

Jamie Sullivan says: You know what I figured out today?

Landon Carter says: What?

Jamie Sullivan says: 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 says: Boy. They told me European women had funny ways.

Landon Carter says: i am sorry that she never got her miracle.

Landon Carter says: I am sorry that she never got her miracle.

Rev. Sullivan says: She did.It was you.

Rev. Sullivan says: She did. It was you.

Landon Carter says: Now would be the time to say something.

Jamie Sullivan says: I told you not to fall in love with me.

Jamie Sullivan says: I told you not to fall in love with me.
