Jennifer Carpenter is treasuring her time with husband and Ã¢â¬ÅDexterÃ¢â¬Â co-star Michael C. Hall Ã¢â¬â especially in light of the news that the actor has been undergoing treatment for HodgkinÃ¢â¬â¢s Lymphoma.
Ã¢â¬ÅHeÃ¢â¬â¢s great,Ã¢â¬Â Jennifer told AccessHollywood.comÃ¢â¬â¢s Laura Ã¢â¬ÅDish of SaltÃ¢â¬Â Saltman at AccessÃ¢â¬â¢ 4th Annual Ã¢â¬ÅStuff You MustÃ¢â¬Â Golden Globes gift lounge at the Sofitel Hotel in LA. Ã¢â¬ÅVery lucky [he] caught it early Ã¢â¬â itÃ¢â¬â¢s 98 percent curable, so itÃ¢â¬â¢s basically choosing the treatment and sticking with it.Ã¢â¬Â
Now, she said the star is on the road to a full recovery.
Ã¢â¬ÅAfter two rounds of treatment, he was in complete remission. HeÃ¢â¬â¢s just finishing up to make sure it stays that way,Ã¢â¬Â Jennifer said. Ã¢â¬ÅHe wanted to let everybody know and heÃ¢â¬â¢s been receiving so much support and good thoughts. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s been the kick that he needed to just finish it up.Ã¢â¬Â
And she added that the illness has brought the couple Ã¢â¬â who play brother and sister on the hit Showtime series Ã¢â¬â closer together.
Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s always felt like an opportunity to get closer and IÃ¢â¬â¢m just so impressed with him and anyone whoÃ¢â¬â¢s had to go through it,Ã¢â¬Â she said, becoming visibly emotional. Ã¢â¬ÅEvery secondÃ¢â¬â¢s special with him, it sounds corny but itÃ¢â¬â¢s true. IÃ¢â¬â¢m very lucky.Ã¢â¬Â
