Michael C. Hall on Working with Jennifer Carpenter Post-Divorce

It was challenging [working with Jennifer Carpenter after they divorced], inasmuch as we’d obviously gone through a lot. But ultimately, it was tremendously gratifying. The context of our relationship changed, but the relationship didn’t end. And the fact that we were able to work together in a committed and intimate way and continue to tell a story that we both felt was worth telling meant a lot to both of us. We remain friends and I’m very thankful for that.

Did You Know? ‘Dexter’ Used Less Plastic Wrap in Later Seasons and the Reason Will Shock You

Kill TableSeveral actors including Jennifer Carpenter have commented on being on Dexter’s table. The most common reaction to the experience was the difficulty of remaining in a thick cocoon of plastic wrap for several hours at a time. But this isn’t why Dexter started cutting down on the saran-wrap.

Plastic wrap has the ability to actually suffocate people. Though the plastic was not always covering peoples’ mouths, it prevented the actors’ skin from breathing, which might, in extreme circumstances, led to actual deaths on set.

Chino

Michael C. Hall claimed: “I’ve had dreams that blurred my own reality and Dexter’s. I had a dream where I was at a beach house with my extended family and the doorbell kept ringing. I’d go to answer it, and little Chino would be there (one of Dexter’s more formidable victims) and i had to kill him. And every time I returned to the table, the doorbell would ring again. And he’d be there again, and I’d have to kill him again. It was tedious.”

Did You Know? ‘Dexter’ Pissed off Australia

According to WhatCulture.com, “Dexter managed to cause an international incident thanks to an off-hand remark in one episode which stated that Adelaide, a city in southern Australia, had the highest serial killer count per person out of any place in the world. It may or may not actually be true, but it’s a widely-reported bit of grizzly trivia.

Regardless of any factual basis, the South Australian government filed complaints against the local Fox affiliate that aired the show in the country, and adverts around the country promoting the then-current season were pulled from billboards, newspapers, magazines and TV screens as a result. Sure are sensitive, those murderous Aussies.”
