Dexter Star Opens Up About Real-Life Romance With On-Screen Brother

| Filed under: TV NewsLove Line


Ha! We can see why this would be awkward at first!

Jennifer Carpenter recently opened up about falling in love with her Dexter co-star and ON-SCREEN BROTHER Michael C. Hall, and claims she was concerned at first that would influence their characters' chemistry!

She explains:

"We were just friends, and it was very easy to be friends. We were both surprised when this other thing happened. We did a lot of talking about it - can we kiss, what will that mean, will we damage the credibility of our characters? We were very practical… But in the end, the heart wanted what the heart wanted."

So sweet! And we have to give them a lot of credit!

If we didn't know that they were married, we would have NEVER guessed it from their performances on the show!

Bravo, guys! Such a lovely couple!

    I love them!

  2. 2

    Aww yes, and I wonder if Deb will be the one who figures out that Dexter is a killer too. I am not ready for that story to come out.

    What's weird about it? Were she my sister in REAL life I'm bone her!

  4. 4

    Never knew they were a couple off screen….I can't see it lol

    Perez being hypocritical again…as usual. Michael Hall left his first wife for Jennifer, but are there cries of "homewrecker" for her. Of course not. Perez only finds fault with people he already dislikes. And calling someone a homewrecker in the first place is out of line because if people are unhappy and find someone that makes them happy, then they should go for it every time. We only go around once.

    I wouldn't call her a "homewrecker." It was his decision. But I always get a little queasy when an actor becomes popular and immediately ditches the original wife for a newer model. I'm not sure that's the case here — maybe the first marriage was already in trouble — but there are a lot of actors guilty of "trading up" when they become famous. I applaud the ones who don't leave wife #1 for a better-looking model (Jeff Bridges is one). But I have to say, I still adore Michael C. Hall and I think he's a great actor. Jennifer Carpenter is disturbing to look at because she's painfully thin. It's really not a good look. Lauren Velez is the real woman on that show.

    I love this show and I love them. I too will wonder if Deb will find out what her "brother" does as a sideline. LOL

    OK Off the subject I love Jennifer Carpenters Gown it is by my brother Oday Shakar I think he is so talented !!!!!!!!! I might be a bit bias being that he is my brother !!! But still you have to admit its pretty fabulous !!!!

    They're both such good actors that they haven't messed up their on screen relationship at all.

  10. Laura says – reply to this


    yea, u would never think these two were together when watching dexter. so weird.

    They aren't the only real life couple to play brother and sister. It's called acting and they get paid a lot of money to do it. It would only be weird if it was the other way around.
