They play brother and sister on "Dexter." Now in real life, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter are husband and wife. Hall's spokesman, Craig Bankey, said on Friday that the couple eloped in California on New Year's Eve. They'll walk the red carpet together at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday — the first time publicly acknowledging their relationship.
Hall, 37, and Carpenter, 29, just finished the third season of "Dexter," the Showtime series in which Hall plays the murderous title character. They've been quietly dating for about a year and a half.
I've known about this for a little over a year (the Miami Herald leaked it in their gossip section but the mainstream entertainment press never picked it up) and it hasn't affected my enjoyment of the show in the least. Congratulations to both of them and good luck with the marriage thing (Hall's second, Carpenter's first). That said, damn is it going to get creepy if the show were to somehow reveal the Morgan siblings... nah, not going to go there.
