If you’re a fan of the hit show Dexter, about a police lab analyst who turns serial killer on other serial killers, you might be wondering what’s up. I haven’t seen the show airing lately and wondered maybe if it had switched channels. It seems that Michael C. Hall, aka Dexter, has been suffering from cancer — Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in particular. His wife, Jennifer Carpenter, says that he has now fully recovered from cancer and will be back on the Showtime series, which won him a Screen Actor’s Guild Award and a Golden Globe.
Now here’s the weird part. Hall’s wife in real life (i.e., Carpenter) plays his sister on the Dexter series. I always thought there was some weird dynamic between the two. Reminds of musicians Jack White (of the White Stripes and numerous other projects) and his former wife Meg White, who sometimes pretended to be his sister.
