Jennifer Carpenter is treasuring her time with husband and “Dexter” co-star Michael C. Hall – especially in light of the news that the actor has been undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

“He’s great,” Jennifer told’s Laura “Dish of Salt” Saltman at Access’ 4th Annual “Stuff You Must” Golden Globes gift lounge at the Sofitel Hotel in LA. “Very lucky [he] caught it early – it’s 98 percent curable, so it’s basically choosing the treatment and sticking with it.”

Now, she said the star is on the road to a full recovery.

“After two rounds of treatment, he was in complete remission. He’s just finishing up to make sure it stays that way,” Jennifer said. “He wanted to let everybody know and he’s been receiving so much support and good thoughts. That’s been the kick that he needed to just finish it up.”

And she added that the illness has brought the couple — who play brother and sister on the hit Showtime series — closer together.

“It’s always felt like an opportunity to get closer and I’m just so impressed with him and anyone who’s had to go through it,” she said, becoming visibly emotional. “Every second’s special with him, it sounds corny but it’s true. I’m very lucky.”
