As I talked about on the podcast, I wrote off to Jennifer Carpenter while she was starring in a play in New York through February 2011. I enclosed a photo with my letter and asked her to sign it, which she duly did!
The play ended on February 20th so the address is no longer valid but I was chuffed to get a response!
I'd not been collecting Dexter stars but I already have John Lithgow in my collection. Hopefully I'll get responses from the other three actors I wrote to at the same time as Jennifer: David Zayas, Jonny Lee Miller and Michael C Hall.
