Shannon Kenny Carbonell is a former actress and author of the memoir “All is Not LOST” which is a book for every mom who’s ever felt lost or stuck in that “what’s next for me?” moment, which I think we’ve all gone through at one or many points in our lives.
She is also the wife of actor Nestor Carbonell of LOST, Bates Motel, and The Morning Show fame and a mom to a 15 and 19 year old.
When her kids were young, Shannon made the hard decision to give up her own acting career in favor of her husband’s career and full-time motherhood. No matter how painful, she knew she was making the better choice for her and her family. 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.
Shannon shares raw and honest stories of her experience and lessons learned from taking a pause on her career, having to rediscover her identity, and filling that void within her. We also talk about relationships, communication, life as an actor, and dealing with resentment.
