But thanks for wondering by the way. Carbonell, better know as the ageless Richard Alpert on Lost, told SciFi Wire that he doesn’t wear men’s eyeliner.
At the TV Critics Association press tour, some reporters asked if you wore eyeliner, which Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse denied. What do you think of this?
Carbonell: My brother sent me this link about the TCA, where you guys were at. Someone had asked about whether I was wearing eyeliner. I think Carlton came to my defense, and he said, “He’s 100 percent sans makeup” or something like that. I could see why some people would think I have eyeliner on because [my eyelashes] are dark. Especially the bottom row, they’re pretty dark. I’ve been dealing with it since I was a little kid, and so to me it’s very funny when it comes up, especially at TCA. My brother told me to look online and sort of Google something about that, and my name came up as a couple things. One of them was Maybelline Man. I’ve been dubbed by some people as Guyliner. It’s very amusing.
In regards to this season’s time jumping, Carbonell admitted that it will slow down and the dizziness of the season will end.
“I’m a little dizzy,” Carbonell admitted in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. “Initially, it took me, in the first episode, [a moment to figure out] ‘OK, when am I exactly? Where are we, and when am I?’ But, no, it didn’t take long. I think the viewers, after this episode [that aired Jan. 28], the show very much settles down, and you get the gist of the season, that you’re going to be dealing with some elements of time travel.”
So what’d ya’ll think of last night’s episode of Lost? The biggest thing for me was young Charlie Widmore. It’s funny how at this point I could take or leave the castaways, they’ve become almost secondary in the larger picture of the island. Also? Daniel Faraday is my new favorite character.
