Michael C. Hall

These days, it feels like more people are diagnosed with cancer than people catch the common cold, and it’s about as depressing as anything can be. Just in this past few months, two stars of hugely-popular premium TV series announced that they were receiving treatment for the disease.

In January, star of the Showtime hit series Dexter, Michael C. Hall, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma; two months later, Andy Whitfield, who is the star of the successful new Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand was given a Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnoses.

Both cases were thankfully treatable forms, and finally, some good news has arrived. After a stretch of steady treatment after the disease went into remission, Hall’s wife and Dexter co-star Jennifer Carpenter has announced that her husband has “fully recovered” from the cancer. She noted how brave the 38-year-old actor was in his battle, and that he has now returned to work on Season 5 of Dexter.

Hall is also known from his work in movies like Gamer, and his wife Carpenter has been seen in titles like The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Quarantine. Hall was on hand at the last Golden Globes ceremony, where he won the award for Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama.

Now we can only hope to hear the same good news for 35-year-old Whitfield in the very near future.

  4. So Happy Michael C Hall is a winner over his cancer. He is great.
    My own son, battles a rare blood c ,lot disease and is fighting everhy dayh for his very live. Brian, is a good looking yhoung man who was asked to do modeling but i nsead decided to have a business of his own and was very successful until this GFacgtor V Leiden Mutation disease took over his live. At this time he also looks great, but suffers tremendously.

    God Blesws “DEXTER” and his ovely wife who plays an excellant role as Hall’s sister on Dexter.
    Looking forward top ALL new episodes.

    Good Luck

    GOD BLESS
