Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! For the first site update of 2022, I wanted to focus on Nestor’s various television guest appearances over the years. We start with his 1992 appearance in A Different World & end in 2015 with his role as Sheldon Blackwood in Showtime’s Ray Donovan.



December 01 2021

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!



November 18 2021

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.
