#Fact
1During a behind-the-scenes special after the end of Bates Motel's Season 2, a fan again asked Nestor Carbonell if he wears eyeliner. As he did during a behind-the-scenes special during the filming of Lost, Carbonell again explained that his eyes have just always looked that way, that he was born looking that way. Then at the host's urging, he rubbed his eyes with makeup removal pads and showed the camera that the pads were clean.
2Attended Harvard University. (Interview on "The Talk" on November 8, 2011.).
3Is of Cuban and Spanish descent.
4Carbonell revealed on the Lost (2004) fifth season DVD extras that not only does he not wear eyeliner, mascara, or makeup of any kind to make his lashes and eyeline appear as dark as they do, but the makeup artists for "Lost" actually use concealer on his lashes and under his eyes to try to tone down the natural darkness of his eyeline. He also said that the unusual appearance of his eyes caused him to get teased and bullied when he was a child.
5Father of Rafael (b. 2002) and Marco (b. 2005).
6Nestor and his wife, Shannon Kenny, met while both were working on the show "Muscle" in 1995.
