NEW YORK — The wife of Michael C. Hall says the "Dexter" star is "fully recovered" from cancer and has returned to work.Now, first of all: Yay! I'm really glad Michael C. Hall is on the mend.
Jennifer Carpenter said Friday that Hall was "incredibly brave" when he announced in January that he was undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer that attacks the lymph nodes.
The 38-year-old Hall went into remission and continued treatment at a health facility near Los Angeles.
Hall won a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe Award earlier this year for his portrayal of Dexter, a serial killer who targets other murderers. Carpenter stars on the bloody Showtime hit series as Dexter's seemingly unknowing sister.
And secondly: Boo! I love how the headline—and the first sentence—only makes sense if you make Jennifer Carpenter, who is also a star of Dexter (which is reported in the LAST LINE of the story), only Michael C. Hall's wife.
She's the wife, he's the star...oh, and also, she's a star of the same show, too. By the way. Not that it matters. Because she's the wife.
As Deeks said when I emailed this to him: "WTF? Wife first, actress and star in her own right second."
Even, "Wife: 'Dexter' co-star 'fully recovered' from cancer" would have made a huge difference. That's just how easy it is.
