Jennifer Carpenter: Life Is All About Love

I've been a fan of Jennifer Carpenter's ever since her mind-blowing and back-bending performance in 2005's The Exorcism of Emily Rose. And while she's never disappointed as Debra Morgan on Showtime's Dexter, the last nine weeks have seen the 32-year-old deliver her most profound, affecting and stunning work to date.
Although, Carpenter performance isn't the only thing to be reinvigorated by Debra learning her brother's secret as this is the most sublime season of Dexter since The Trinity Killer was offed in season four.
But starting today, fans can see a totally different side to the actress as her new romantic dramedy, Ex-Girlfriends, has been released on iTunes. Focusing on three people (Graham, played by Alexander Poe, Laura, played by Kristen Connolly and Kate, played by Carpenter), Girlfriends finds an exciting new way to investigate the age-old question of whether you can truly be friends with an ex.
ETonline caught up with Carpenter when she was in NYC to talk about this brave new film, her tour-de-force season of Dexter and discovered that when all is said and done, she'd like Debra Morgan to die.
Ex-Girlfriends is now available on iTunes, while Dexter airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
