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

Personal life[edit]

Nathan has four tattoos: an NHL logo on his arm, a sun on his back, a tattoo of Marvin the Martian on his upper thigh, and a spaceship on his left arm.

Marriage and children[edit]

Nathan worked together with Chyler Leigh in 2000 on the television series 7th Heaven, playing Mary Camden's (Jessica Biel) troubled friends Frankie and Johnnie. The couple married on July 20, 2002.[1] They have three children: Noah Wilde Leigh (born December 2003), Taelyn Leigh (born September 2006),[2] and Anniston Kae Leigh (born May 7, 2009).[3]

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.[4][5]

West is a Christian. [6] [7]


In the Fall of 2014, Nathan will make his Broadway debut as Michael Astor in the new play The Country House, starring Blythe Danner.
