Dexter star Michael C. Hall reveals how Dexter Morgan has changed from the series birth to its final season, and the impact of Yvonne Strahovski’s character, Hannah McKay, on Dexter in season 8.

“I wouldn’t say the character is unrecognisable to me now, but it’s changed, I’ve changed.”

Michael C. Hall recently sat down with the Brisbane Times for an interview regarding the unfolding development of Dexter Morgan since the series’ inception to its current stage in season 8. Hall also went on to speak about the impact Hannah McKay has had, and that Dexter’s love life will be continued to be explored in season 8.

Hall commented, “When I first encountered the character [Dexter] I didn’t anticipate it going in so many of the directions it has gone. I wouldn’t say the character is unrecognisable to me now, but it’s changed, I’ve changed. If you do something this long inevitably the flow of your life and the flow of the character’s life, at least it will intersect at some point.”

Dexter is now in its eighth season, but in those eight years Dexter has changed an awful lot. He now seems to more involved with his own emotions, and has become a father for the first time. The loss of Rita was a humongous blow to Dexter in terms of his emotional stability, and was one of the first times we saw Dexter have a more human side to him. But Hall comments that it is his father Harry who really is the one behind Dexter’s nature.

Hall said, “I think Dexter is someone who is sold on the idea that he was a psychopath. His father didn’t use that language but when I think he taught Dexter “the code” he conditioned him to believe he was a monster. But I think there lives in Dexter an appetite for a more full-flowered sense of himself as a human being so I think we see himself at this point based with the difficult task of trying to reconcile his appetite for humanity and his monstrosity. I don’t envy him that work.”

Hall then went on to comment on the final two seasons of Dexter in the two-season story arc of seasons 7 and 8. Hall noted that the finale of season 6 has set the tone for both season 7 and 8 with “a new landscape facilitated” with Deb finding out about who her brother Dexter really is.

Hall noted, “There’s been a serial nature to this storytelling in each season in its self contained arc and I think when we made the commitment to do two more at the end of [season] 6, that coupled with the new landscape facilitated with Deb finding out about who her brother is left us in a place where we really felt the story owed it. Maybe it’s going to work out? And maybe, we’ll see…But it’s been invigorating in the seventh season and going on the eighth, to be as enthused about what’s being written and what the characters are going through as ever.”

But, one of the teases Hall gave in the interview was regarding the involvement of Yvonne Strahovski’s character, Hannah McKay. There has been a lot of rumours and speculation regarding Strahovski’s involvement, and as it stands, she has not been confirmed for season 8. Hall dropped some hints though about her status within Dexter.

“Well I think that’s a question that will take with us as we go into these final episodes, we’ll see. I think the possibility is alive in Dexter in terms of what he allows himself to hope for, at least at times. It’s a pretty complicated logistical landscape to get away with. All the wreckage left behind him at this point so, we’ll see.” said Hall.

What do you think about Hall’s comments? Do you find Dexter almost unknown to the Dexter you first met? And what about those cryptic comments regarding Yvonne Strahovski? We hope she will return for season 8 after such a great inclusion in the seventh season.

Dexter returns to Showtime on June 30.

Anyone who received a mole or rat Patronus in J.K. Rowling’s new quiz is getting a little reassurance from the Harry Potter author.

Last week Pottermore took the fandom by storm when they debuted the long-awaited Patronus quiz. It’s a next-level personality quiz — it’s beautiful and provides a real sense of magic. Overall, we love it!

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

Over the weekend Rowling fielded a couple of complaints by offering the upside to getting a rat or mole Patronus.

Rat Patronus explanation:

Mole Patronus explanation:

All told, there are over 140 Patronuses. Can she get to work on writing reassuring comments on every single one of ’em?

In a press release announcing the Patronus quiz, Pottermore said that “further new information and features will be revealed about the spell and its outcomes” in the “months to come.” Hopefully that means we really are getting detailed explanations.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con, Hypable caught up with Game of Thrones actress Kerry Ingram for a chat about Shireen’s horrific death scene, Netflix, and horseback riding.

It seemed like a full-circle moment when I got to sit down with Kerry Ingram and tell her just how much Shireen Baratheon’s death upset me. Even on a show like Game of Thrones, which makes an art out of assaulting its viewers’ senses, that particular scene felt like it crossed a line — and that was just my reaction, watching safely from behind a computer screen! How must the actress herself feel, having to actually act out her character’s death at such a young age?

This led to a wider musing about what Game of Thrones does to protect its child actors from the horrific things their characters experience. (Ingram is now 17, but was only barely in her mid-teens when that scene was filmed.) I also wondered if she ever went back and watched the scene. Turned out she watched it live with the rest of us — but, luckily, she was able to find the fun side of the situation: Outraged reactions like my own. The irony is sweet.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con 2016 I got to ask Kerry Ingram all this and more, while also diving into more fun topics like Shireen and Arya’s hypothetical take-over of Westeros, and Ingram’s new Netflix series, on which she plays ‘Becky with the good hair’ and gets to do lots of horseback riding. Watch the full interview below:

Ingram’s new Netflix series stars Jaylen Barron as Zoë, a 15-year-old American girl whose stay at Bright Field Stables in the U.K. leads her to form an unexpected friendship with a mysterious horse named Raven.

The Lime Pictures drama also stars Celine Buckens and Natalie Gumede. It was created by Anna McCleery and Vicki Lutas, and is tentatively expected to premiere on Netflix in 2017.

The cast of Will and Grace reunited this week to take on the 2016 Presidential Election.

Update: After a couple of days filled with agonizing teases, and just a hour before the first Presidential Debate, the Will & Grace reunion is now online! Watch the 10-minute episode below, taking on this year’s Presidential Election:

It’s the first “new episode” of Will & Grace since the finale in May 2006. Our hearts!

Original story: Will! Grace! Jack! Karen! Hot Food! Wait, what was that last one? The cast of Will and Grace got together this week to presumably to film a super-secret project. Are we finally getting that full cast reunion special? A reboot? A Christmas special? What does it mean?

http://reginalinetti.co.vu/post/140839408391/will-grace-gifs-58

The pictures began to pour in from all four of the cast members earlier this weekend with a few couple shots and one of the entire cast followed shortly.

The first few images made our hearts flutter and our eyes water, but then more photos were posted and it seems that the sweet reunion was more than just a few friends gathering for the fun of it. Something is coming. Something big.

Eric McCormack’s script here says, “Hot Food.” Similarly, on Sean Hayes’ Instagram, a picture featuring the same title was posted with the name “Fred” underneath.

Other photos, namely those of Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, look as if they were shot on the rebuilt set of 9C. Be still my heart. Be still.

With very little to go on, some of our early guesses include a video filmed in support of a charity or, more likely, an announcement that the entire series is going to available for streaming on either Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. The series is currently not available online.

Whatever the news turns out to be, it was a great weekend to be a Will and Grace fan!

Stay tuned for more information after the announcement arrives!
