“Dexter” star Michael C. Hall made his battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma public today in a surprising statement to the press.
I feel fortunate to have been diagnosed with an imminently treatable and curable condition, and I thank my doctors and nurses for their expertise and care.
A spokesperson for the 38-year-old actor says the cancer is in complete remission and that Hall will continue treatment as planned. It was not made known when Hall was diagnosed nor at what Los Angeles based hospital.
Hall will begin to shoot season five of the hit Showtime show “Dexter” later this year. He is nominated for a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of serial killer Dexter Morgan and is scheduled to attend the ceremony on Sunday with his wife and costar Jennifer Carpenter.
