'Dexter's Jennifer Carpenter: I'm 'Close' With Michael C. Hall Despite Divorce: [ send to a friend ]
"Has it changed anything? Yes," she tells 'E! News'. "But I mean, he is and always will be one of my best friends in the world."
"And just because the marriage ended doesn't mean the love isn't still there. We take very good care of each other and our cast, we always have, and I'm just really lucky."
"I'm also grateful that the show is successful because, you know, six years in and to still be challenged by the work and proud of the work is quite an accomplishment. It's largely in part to our writers. They are all powerhouses and sick in the greatest way!"
As for whether Debra will finally discover her brother's dark secret this season?
"Just between us, I think that she has always suspected something dark, sort of like a dark undercurrent with him," Carpenter explains.
"There are just too many gaping holes with his schedule with how he connects and disconnects from her and other people. So I don't think that she would say that 'He must wrap people in plastic, and drive knives through their rib cage.' You know?"
"I don't think it's quite cut and dry like that for her, but there is always a suspicion, and I feel like I've always been right there with you the audience."
