LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall has married co-star Jennifer Carpenter, who plays his sister on the television show, the actor’s representative said on Friday.

They wed on New Year’s Eve in picturesque Big Sur, California, and she had a wedding ring linked to a bouquet, Hall’s representative Craig Bankey said in a statement.

The ring was passed down from Carpenter’s grandfather.

In “Dexter,” Hall plays Dexter Morgan, a Miami police analyst who moonlights as a serial killer targeting sociopaths. Carpenter plays Debra Morgan, Dexter’s adoptive sister, a tomboyish cop. “Dexter” is on U.S. cable channel Showtime.

Hall, 37, and Carpenter, 29, dated for a year and-a-half before being married, Bankey said.
