Carbonell 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.
Is of Cuban and Spanish descent.
Attended Harvard University. (Interview on "The Talk" on November 8, 2011.).
During a behind-the-scenes special for Bates Motel (2013), a fan again asked Carbonell if he wears eyeliner. As he did during the behind-the-scenes special for Lost (2004), he explained that his eyes have always looked that way, and that he was born looking that way. At the host's urging, Carbonell wiped his eyes with makeup removal pads and showed the camera that the pads were clean.
Good friends with Bates Motel (2013) co-stars Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore and Max Thieriot.
