Today we celebrate not only Nestor’s birthday but we have come to the 1 year anniversary of this site! When I started this site a year ago, I was not sure where it would go. This past year has been an amazing ride filled with ups & downs, certainly never a dull moment in the Nestor fandom! For the anniversary we have an amazing new theme that was designed by Kaci Elizabeth. I originally thought about doing a theme based on Nestor’s overall career but instead went with focusing on one character, and of course I had to go with my favorite – Sheriff Alex Romero from Bates Motel! The theme went through 2 different previews before settling on this look which we both felt captured the old school feel that Bates gave off. The GIF set in the header was Kaci’s idea which she really wanted to incorporate while I wanted to add Nestor’s autograph into the header in some fashion. In addition to the new theme I have also updated the gallery with public appearances that Nestor has made over the years from Film Premieres, Series premieres, Award Events to that time he threw one of the first pitches at an LA Dodgers game even. You can check out all of the events below in our gallery and here is to one year with this site, and can’t wait to see what the 2nd year brings with all of his new upcoming projects!


A birthday is just the first day of another 365 day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. Wishing a happy birthday to Nestor Carbonell. Thank you for always taking the time to speak with fans whether in person at a convention or online on social media. Sending love & light for the end of the year as well as luck for your upcoming projects next year! Your fans cannot wait to see them!!


That’s a wrap on Season 2 of The Morning Show! The gallery has been updated with more Behind the Scenes photos of Nestor Carbonell shared by cast mates: Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Aniston.


Tonight was the season finale of The Morning Show and what a way to bring Yanko’s storyline full circle! In the end due to his suspension Yanko stood alone at UBA to deliver the news since he was the only one not exposed to COVID.
Thank You to Nestor Carbonell & the rest of the cast & crew of The Morning Show – onward and upward to another season!


Tonight’s episode which was released early saw the return of Yanko on our screens due to his suspension & being absent the past 2 episodes. It also saw Yanko & Claire reunited since we last saw them together in the Season 1 finale. What started out to be a sweet reunion with them making plans to get together again before she left goes south. She becomes upset at the realization that Yanko is going to attend Mitch’s memorial service. He begs her to understand why he is going which spurs her to reveal that she is financing the lawsuit against UBA for Hannah. Yanko wants Claire to understand she can’t blame herself for Hannah’s death which only angers Claire more causing her to storm off. It was great to see Nestor Carbonell & Bel Powley back together on screen although it seems that all hope may be lost for a possible reconciliation of their relationship. In the Inside the Episode, Nestor discusses Yanko’s motivation for attending Mitch’s memorial and can be found below in the video vault.


The gallery has been updated with screencaptures from the Director’s Cut of Killer Movie which was released on August 27, 2021. Originally released in 2008, Nestor Carbonell portrays Seaton Brookstone who tasks a client to direct a documentary in a small town. During the course of the film the crew & more are killed off one by one in a spoof of slasher flicks. A nod at this even further is the fact that the director’s cut is shorter with scenes placed in different points of the movie or scenes in the movie (such as Nestor’s interviews) being added as popups on the screen.



Tonight we saw the consequences of Yanko’s fight from last week after he comes to the studio to meet with Stella. They discussed his black eye which led to a “they already say I wear eye makeup” quip which is a reference to Nestor Carbonell always being asked if he wears eyeliner. After having a sort of bonding moment over their struggles of being weird as children, Stella tells Yanko she has to suspend him. Yanko who thought he was in the right for sticking up for her was taken back by this announcement after their talk just a minute ago. This scene didn’t really come as a surprise but you have to feel for Yanko since he’s been put through the ringer this season so far.


This weeks episode was released by Apple TV a few hours early, and wow was it worth it! While it was more of a Yanko-lite episode his two scenes in the episode were a definite highlight! When Mia asks him to go to Florida and learn about the Seminole tribe while being filmed he goes off. He refused to appease Stella feeling that she wanted to humiliate him because she was viewing him as prejudiced. This scene was topped when despite his feelings about her Yanko defends Stella against a man yelling racial slurs at her about COVID-19 by getting into a public fight with him.
