Q: How did you feel about your character finally learning the truth the way he did and what ultimately became of Dexter?

A: "Well, the name of the show is Dexter, so it’s his story and his journey. Ever since season one, I was just part of someone telling his story and creating circumstances where the audience can see where Dexter’s mind is at. First of all, I was ecstatic that they even called me to be part of New Blood. ‘Would you like to come and do a couple of episodes?’ I said, ‘Just tell me where to come and I’ll be there.’ It was fun to do, fun to watch, and that’s the character I spent the most time with in the business. It’s something that…Batista is true to my heart and I love that character. He’s still alive, just so you know [Laughs].

Q: There’s been a lot of Dexter prequel, sequel, and spin-off talk lately; are you hoping there could be more Angel in your future? 

A: "Maybe! I’ll welcome it."
