Christian, 54, was seen wearing a black T-shirt beneath a green jacket.

He had on a casual pair of jeans and brown boots.

The actor’s hair was shaggy, and he appeared to be smoking a cigarette.

Typically, Christian – who rose to fame in the 1980s – rocks a more polished look, sporting short hair and trendy clothes.

His on-set look was a stark departure from what fans have come to expect from him.

Christian Slater was also seen filming, preparing to step back into the role of Harry Morgan on Dexter: Original Sin

ALL ABOUT DEXTER

Dexter Origins, which has since been renamed Dexter: Original Sin, was announced in 2023.

Since then, a number of details have been revealed.

Christian, who famously appeared in Mr. Robot, was attached to the show in May 2024, according to Deadline.

He is joined by Patrick Gibson, who will play a young Dexter Morgan, and Molly Brown, who was cast as Dexter’s sister, Debra Morgan.

Christian will play Dexter’s father, Harry Morgan.

As previously reported by The U.S. Sun, Dexter: Original Sin will detail Dexter Morgan’s transformation into the accomplished serial killer fans will recall from the original show.

Showtime announced the launch of the spinoff, along with another Dexter-based show called New Blood, in 2023.

New Blood follows Dexter’s son, Harrison.

Dexter was played by Michael C. Hall.

All About Dexter: Original Sin

Dexter premiered in 2006 and ran for eight seasons on Showtime. The show was beloved by fans and many were disappointed when it ended. In February 2023, it was announced that a sequel was in the works.

Here’s everything we know about the Dexter prequel:

  • The Dexter prequel was originally called Dexter: Origins
  • It was later renamed Dexter: Original Sin
  • Another Dexter-based show is in the works, called Dexter: New Blood
  • Dexter: Original Sin will star Patrick Gibson, Christian Slater, Patrick Dempsey, and Molly Brown
  • The show is set in 1991, 15 years before Dexter
  • Dexter: Original Sin is set in Miami
  • It follows a young Dexter during his time as a student and intern at the Miami Metro Police Department
  • In the show, Dexter leans on his father Harry amid blood-thirsty urges
  • His father teaches him a moral code for killing and helps him avoid getting caught

The original series chronicled the life of the title character, a scientist and serial killer living a double life.

The show ran from 2006 to 2013 and was wildly popular with viewers.

Dexter: Original Sin takes place 15 years before the events of Dexter.

The show is set in 1991 and follows Dexter in Miami, where he’s a student who is transitioning into a serial killer-to-be.

Dexter struggles to ignore his dark urges but finds understanding in Christian’s character Harry.

His father is his only confidant and instills in Dexter a moral code of sorts that helps him find and kill people, but only those who deserve to die.

Harry’s training helps Dexter to go undetected, even while interning at the Miami Metro Police Department.

The show is executive produced by Clyde Phillips and produced by Showtime Studios and Counterpart Studios.

Scott Reynolds also serves as an executive producer on the show, along with Michael, Mary Leah Sutton, Tony Hernandez, Lilly Burns, and Robert Lloyd Lewis as a producer.

Michael Lehmann is due to serve as directing executive producer on the show.

He previously worked with Christian on Heathers.

OFF-SCREEN EXCITEMENT

Christian lives a relatively quiet life.

The actor is married to Brittany Lopez, with the pair tying the knot in 2013.

They quietly welcomed a child together in 2019 but did not reveal its name.

On April 30, 2024, the couple attended the Los Angeles premiere of Unfrosted together.

They revealed on the red carpet that they were expecting a second child together.

The baby is Christian’s fourth.

The actor also shares two children with his first wife.

His oldest child’s name is Jaden, born in 1999.

Christian also has a daughter called Eliana, who was born in 2001.
