Dexter: New Blood star Johnny Sequoyah revealed details about her character Audrey.

Sequoyah spoke with Hollywood Life about how her character isn’t what she seems.

“Even though Audrey definitely plays in the world of innocence within the show, she’s a very smart girl,” she began. “I think that she trusts her gut in a lot of ways.”

She teased that her character may be questioning what Jim Lindsay is up to in future episodes. Sequoyah added that episode 2 foreshadowed her mother’s interest in Lindsay.

“Which is why she went to her mom with it because I think something about it just felt a little bit off,” she added. “Especially because she and Jim in this world have been together for a few years. I think even though they’ve been together for a little bit, there is definitely an element of secrecy to Jim Lindsay, which I’m sure Audrey has her own questions about.”

‘Dexter: New Blood’ Michael C. Hall on Performing

Dexter: New Blood star Michael C. Hall portrays Dexter Morgan, a.k.a. Jim Lindsay. He also is the frontman of his band Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum. Their music is actually used in the series and he has compared his work in the band to his work acting on set.

In a new interview with Screenrant, Hall discussed his passions for playing in front of a live audience.

“It’s great. It’s really gratifying,” he began. “The band is something that we’ve been up to for a few years and [we] had been playing gigs in New York. We’re about to take a trip out to L.A. Kind of got shut down as far as performing live so since we did some shows in New York in late October and have subsequently gone on this tour here in the UK, it’s been so great to just be in front of a live audience.”

Their track “Ketamine” was used in a recent episode of Dexter: New Blood. It fittingly went along with the gruesome nature of the plot. Despite his character not enjoying performance, he is completely the opposite.

“I think part of the thrill of performing with the band is unique in as much as I’m putting over material that we created together. Dexter is a very sort of isolating experience in a way – he’s trapped in his layers of secrets,” Hall added.

He believes that the confidant is the audience, who is not actually there.

“When you’re in a room full of people who are there with you experiencing something that requires a much more full-on, expansive, singing at the top of your lungs energy, it’s a very different experience. And I think maybe in the long run, better for you. More of an endorphin rush,” Hall confirmed.
