Dexter - Julia Stiles Interview

Thanks to our good friend John from dextergr for sending us the following..

Welcome to the wonderful world of Dexter. Tell us a little about your character, Lumen.
Julia Stiles: She comes into Dexter's life, and she's very mysterious. You only slowly learn where she's come from, and it's clear that she's experienced a major trauma and has a really hard time moving past that and getting on with her life.

How would you describe your relationship with Dexter? Is he already moving on from Rita with this new woman?
J.S.: Lumen is not a replacement for Rita. The relationship that she has with Dexter is very unconventional. It's intimate, but this is not your typical romance that you would see anywhere else. Their connection is one that is really profound. Also, her name is very significant in terms of what she brings to Dexter's life. [Editor's note: The word lumen means "a measure of the power of light perceived by the human eye," so at this point we're choosing to believe that Julia's character is instrumental in Dexter's healing process.]

We know that Lumen sticks around for the rest of season five. How quickly does this unconventional relationship with Dexter develop?
J.S.: There's a lot that happens between Dexter and Lumen. You can definitely say that it's charged; it develops.

Before Lumen's captor Boyd (Shawn Hatosy) was killed last night, he said that he was actually helping the women he had murdered—which would have soon included your character. Should we trust Lumen, or is she hiding something?
J.S.: Lumen does have a secret that she's carrying around. But I'm convinced that I'm going to have some big surprise thrown at me about her in the next final three episodes. The writers are very good at keeping everything a secret.

Final question: Do Dexter and Lumen fall in love?
J.S.: It depends on your definition of love. There are many different ways to show love that can be interpreted in many different ways. Plus, emotions with Dexter are already so unconventional that it's hard to put the word love in there.

What do you think of Julia? Or better yet, what to you think of Lumen?! We're not sure we trust her yet, but we're definitely sticking around to find out more. Don't miss Dexter Sunday's at 9 p.m. on Showtime.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
