Nathan Luke West (born September 29, 1978) is an American actor and musician.


In 2000 West worked on the television series 7th Heaven with his now wife Chyler Leigh, playing Mary Camden's (Jessica Biel) troubled friends Johnny and Frankie.[1]

West has had roles in major films as well as independent projects, including such films as Disney’s Miracle and the award winning independent feature Alleged. Not only an actor he has also worked as a producer, his projects including IFC’s Brake.

Now, having achieved over 10 years in the industry, West is taking on the recording studio, releasing his debut EP "Nothing Ordinary" with his band East of Eli, in anticipation of his upcoming production of the independent feature Into the Mystic.

West is also a singer/song writer, drawing his musical inspiration from the likes of Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and Otis Redding.[2]

West also makes music with his wife Chyler Leigh, under the name "Westleigh". They have performed covers as well as written an original song called "Love lit the sky".[3]

Personal life

West played Jr. hockey with the Detroit Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League.

While at an auditioning for a couple on the show Saving Graces, West met Chyler Leigh. They have worked on many projects with each other after that, usually portraying couples, including Seventh Heaven and Safe Harbor. When on the set of Not Another Teen Movie, Nathan proposed to Chyler. The couple married, and have three children: Noah Wilde West, Taelyn Leigh West (born September 2006),[4] and Anniston Kae West(born May 7, 2009).[5] Leigh has said that she and Nathan have a pact in which the person who guesses the baby's sex correctly gets to choose the name. When pregnant with Noah, Leigh guessed she was having a boy so she chose the first name and Nathan gave him his middle name. For Taelyn, Nathan correctly guessed it was a girl, so he named her. Their third child, also a girl, was guessed correctly by West.[6][7]

West is a Christian.[8][9]
