Dexter and his sister have split after two years of marriage. Actually, the marriage was between the actors who play brother and sister on Dexter, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter. Read about it below.
They found loving playing brother and sister on the Showtime critically acclaimed serial-murderer series, Dexter, but now they are getting a divorce says their rep. It didn’t last long. Just two years and according to their rep they’ve been separated for ‘some time’. Whatever that means. Now Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have filed for divorce.
The couple married on December 31, 2008. During their short marriage Michael C. Hall was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. They gave no reason for their divorce but said it was ‘amicable’. However, Access Hollywood reports that Hall and Carpenter weren’t getting along on the Dexter set during the last season.
Naturally, Dexter fans want to know how this will affect the series. Aside from worrying about the actors, of course. Don’t worry. Season 5 ended with a record 2.9 million viewers and season six is already in the works. The friction between the two might just make for a more lethal Dexter next season. Who knows!
