On January 16th Nestor announced via his social media that his wife, Shannon is releasing her book:All Is Not Lost. In the past 2 weeks, he & Shannon both have begun promoting the book’s upcoming release through social media as well as her website which can be viewed below. The official synopsis for the book from the site is as follows:
“All Is Not LOST is the story of what happened when one woman set aside a lifelong dream in favor of her kids, only to find herself battling her own ego and unfulfilled ambition. Shannon Kenny Carbonell—wife of actor Nestor Carbonell of LOST, Bates Motel, and The Morning Show fame—knew she was making the better choice for her, no matter how painful, when she decided on full-time motherhood over career. Little did Shannon know she would soon find herself desperate to feed the part of her that was suddenly starved of creativity and accomplishment.
When she found out her family would be relocating to Oahu, Hawaii, while Nestor shot LOST, Shannon helped uproot their lives with as much true love and support as she could muster, thinking, “I’ll just have to be lost in the midst of LOST.” But not long after the move, a torturous family fight revealed the burden of her loss was also weighing upon those closest to her. Just like the LOST survivors, she had crashed on an island that would test her, heal her, and surround her with the people who would eventually show her the way home.
With a no-holds-barred honesty that is raw, sometimes heartbreaking, and often hysterical, former working actress Shannon Kenny Carbonell tells her tale of attempting to reconcile her growing feelings of failure and sudden loss of her identity. This is her journey.”
The book has already received praise for its honest look at giving up your dreams for your family & life in the entertainment industry. With a release date of March 16th, you can pre-order the book through Shannon’s site below through links to Amazon, Books-A-Million & more.
Galaxy Con hosted a free live stream Q & A with the cast of Lost which was a reunion with Nestor, Emilie DeRavin, Andrew Divoff, Francois Chau, and Jeremy Davies. During the stream they discussed how they got their roles, as well as answered a few questions from fans.
Afterwards, myself and other fans had the chance to chat with the actors individually, I of course had the pleasure of chatting with Nestor. It was a bit of a wait because he truly was taking his time with each fan in order to get the chance to really talk with them, but the wait was certainly worth it! I was able to talk with him for almost 20 minutes and in that time our conversation ran the gamut from my time in the Marine Corps to my children, and how I met my husband. I also asked him about if he had visited here and he stated he hadn’t but that it was awesome and he wanted to check it out. You can check out the full chat video below!
The gallery has been updated with HQ Episode stills from the short lived Ringer series, in which Nestor portrayed FBI Special Agent, Victor Machado. Special thanks to the Sarah Michelle Gellar Files fansite who kindly allowed us to share some of the photos found in her gallery as well as Nestor Carbonell Fans (no longer online) site for the other photos.
Dominic from Full Empire Promotions posted a video on the company’s social media for the end of the year, with the talent sending their warm wishes to their fans. Néstor was among the well wishers which included such talents as X-Files alums: Mitche Pileggi, Annabeth Gish, and Nicholas Lea. You can view Néstor’s little segment as well as the video in its entirety below.

We are saying goodbye to 2020 with a gallery update based upon a poll that was posted for our Twitter followers. The results were neck and neck with the end result being that fans wanted to see more photoshoots of Néstor! We were kindly given permission to share photos from a shoot that he did with Rohina Hoffman (by the photographer herself), one of which he uses on his Twitter. Speaking of Twitter, we were shockingly (but happily, mind you) followed by Néstor over on our Twitter account for the site last week which we are so grateful for! In addition to the photoshoots as stated in our 1st post we have added quite a few Lost related goodies to the site for all our fellow Losties. I’ve added the rest of the screencaps for Season 3, and all of them for Season 4 as well. The video vault was updated with two Lost Slapdown videos that featured Néstor, which came out during the original Season 6 run of the show. Visit the links below for this content as well as a few other videos & albums that were updated in the gallery.
It was announced today by Galaxy Con Live that Néstor will be joining other cast members from Lost for a free live stream Q & A on January 17th, 2021. In addition to this, he will be signing autographs and doing video chats with fans. More information including prices can be found below.
