Michael C. Hall, who plays slasher serial killer on the Showtime’s bloody smash Dexter, won his first Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor In a Television Series, just days after announcing his diagnosis with cancer.
The star is undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma and wore a wool cap as he accepted his award. He did not mention his illness. Last week a rep for Michael told The Associated Press that the actor was lucky enough to be diagnosed with a “treatable and curable condition,” and thanked his doctors and nurses in Los Angeles for helping him through treatment. The 38-year-old actor is said to be in complete remission.
