Michael C. Hall

Emmy nomination

16 Jul, 2009

Hall is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Dexter Morgan on Dexter.

Well, I think all bets would be off if he wasn’t killing by the code and killing deserving parties. Also, the way the show is structured, the audience isn’t a regular observer but in Dexter’s head and a part of that trauma, which adds to the appeal of the character. Another thing that keeps that appeal is that I don’t want it to be ‘who does he kill this week?’ He has to develop, as do his relationships, and I think an example of that is when these relationships are threatened, he is forced to protect them not because of the code he is following but because he has a stake in these relationships now.
