I was unaware of how deep the morbid connection was between Michael C. Hall in his real life and on his television show, Dexter, until reading a recent NY Times article.
“I think I’ve been preoccupied since I was 11, and my father died, with
the idea of the age 39: Would I live that long? What would that be
like?” said Hall. “To discover that I had the Hodgkin’s was alarming, but
at the same time I felt kind of bemused, like: Wow. Huh. How
Chilling. Read the full morbid article here.
But what’s really amazing is that Hall chose to wait until season four wrapped to undergo treatment. His illness did not effect the Dexter filming schedule and Hall even had time to shoot East Fifth Bliss during the show’s hiatus.
Wow. Busy much? And he does it with such poise. Check out Hall looking suave and polished at the 35th Toronto International Film Festival at Roy Thomson Hall on September 15, 2010 in Toronto, Canada.
