Mandy Moore attends NBC's "This Is Us" Season 6 red carpet at Paramount Pictures Studios on December 14, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. Olivia Rodrigo speaks onstage during the Teen Vogue Summit 2021 at Goya Studios on December 04, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.

Mandy Moore is all for a reboot of her 2002 movie, A Walk to Remember, and she has the perfect idea for who would play her character. Speaking to PEOPLE for the 20th anniversary of the film, Moore, 37, said “I would love that.”

Moore has a suggestion of who should play her character,  Jamie Sullivan. “I don’t know, Olivia Rodrigo or something like that,” the This Is Us star said. “Someone could redo this film. I would love to see it. It’s been long enough that, yeah, I feel like we’ve earned our place in cinematic history for a reboot at this point.”

A Walk to Remember was adapted from the 1999 Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name. The story follows jaded and aimless high school senior Landon Carter (Shane West) who unexpectedly falls in love with the girl he once made fun of, Jamie (Moore). The chemistry between Jamie and Landon reflected the real-life chemistry between both Moore and West, 43, who both previously admitted to crushing on each other at the time of filming. Despite that, West said they “always kept it professional” because they “inherently cared about each other.”

“I think when you do [have an attraction] and you’re doing such a sweet story that it just makes it very easy,” he said, noting that it was “very much a family” feel on set. “Everybody got along and balanced in reality. I was a bit older. Mandy was not 21, so it was more of a loving thing where we were just all out to protect her.”

Recalling her experience working alongside West, Moore believed the “natural ease” the pair had is what still “resonates” with fans to this day. “Somehow, we sort of just had this really natural, effortless chemistry with one another,” she said. “And I think that comes across in the film and that’s hard to get. You can’t really fake that.”
