Dexter star opens up about hit show

It's the end of the road for anti-hero Dexter Morgan who, throughout the past seven series of Dexter, has killed over 100 people.

But Dexter is no ordinary serial killer. The adopted son of Miami police officer Harry Morgan, Dexter is taught The Code, in which he only kills those who have murdered without any justifiable cause. Basically a killer of serial killers.

Dexter’s day job is a spot on blend of genius and irony — he’s a blood spatter pattern analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department.

Along the way, he deals with a variety of slippery serial killers, failed relationships and crises of belief, each time emerging stronger and a little weathered.

The quirky and dark TV series has enjoyed a successful run worldwide, and like all good things, must come to an end.

Michael C. Hall, who plays the titular character in the psychological crime thriller with hints of black comedy and suspense, is also known for his previous idiosyncratic role as David Fisher in the 2001 HBO drama series Six Feet Under about a family of undertakers.

The 42-year-old actor talks about the final season and his role that won him a Golden Globe award and a Screen Actors Guild award.

How do you feel about the final season of Dexter?

I’m really excited and happy with the screenplay, what we shot and I’m looking forward to people’s responses. I’ve been very tired and I’m sleeping more deeply now. Of course there’s a vague sense of sadness but there’s also lots of pride with the collective accomplishment.
