Jennifer Carpenter Has A “Dexter” Secret

“I always come up with a secret for my characters, something that I know that I don’t tell the cast or the crew or the writers, just so that it keeps the character personal and closer to me than anyone else — and that was part of it. It wasn’t necessarily that Deb had a crush on her brother, but it was that there was a pull to him that she may be embarrassed by. Maybe that’s something that the writers picked up on through the years, I’m not sure.”
