It does happen, but perhaps a little less on TV shows than on movie sets.
But splitting up and getting a divorce all the while continuing to work together is pretty much unheard of. There was no negativity between Michael and Jennifer. Some unreliable rumors purported that Michael had a brief affair with Julia Stiles, who was on the show for one season.
They began dating in 2007 and very quietly eloped on New Year’s Eve 2008, appearing at the Golden Globes in January 2009 for the first time as a married couple. Hall announced that he had been diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma and was undergoing treatment.
He looked gaunt at the Golden Globes ceremony when he accepted his award for his role as Dexter.
Their divorce was finalized in December 2011 and the exes continued to work together on Dexter.Most married couples don't work together at all, let alone portraying a semi-incestual brother and sister duo on the set of a series about vigilante serial killer.But seriously, I think this is a lovely thing to say about the whole thing.Few women would continue to work and have a friendship with their ex-husband, if the reason for the divorce was cheating.It is also said that Jennifer had wanted to start a family with Michael, who had been all for it up until he was diagnosed with cancer.
