Julia Stiles has admitted her Dexter alter-ego and the show's title character have chemistry - but remained tight-lipped on whether the pair are set for a romance.The 10 Things I Hate About You actress joined the cast this season as Lumen Pierce, a woman brutalised by a serial killer and rescued by Dexter after he takes care of him.According to Julia, their attraction is based on "the interest in killing certain people."She said the pair were soul mates because "she accepts him for who he is, and what he does".Asked if they would become romantically involved, she said: "I don't know, I can't say."While the actress admits to "filling big shoes" following last season's spine-tingling performance by John Lithgow, she feels her storyline went in a different direction, saying: "I'm a chick, so that helped."

We love Julia Stiles. And we love Julia Stiles on Dexter. So as much as you're going to want to hate the new lady in Dexter's life, we promise it's safe to give this new girl a chance!

Just what is Julia Stiles playing on the fifth season of Dexter, which is back on Showtime (Sundays, 9 p.m. ET/PT)?As a preteen, Stiles, 29, cut her teeth on experimental theater in New York. Then she worked opposite stars such as Heath Ledger (10 Things I Hate About You), Alec Baldwin (State and Main) and Matt Damon (all three Bourne movies). Onstage, she has mastered the words of Shakespeare, David Mamet and Neil LaBute.So handling Dexter, the serial killer who masquerades as a blood-spatter-pattern expert for the Miami Metro Police Department while hunting down other serial killers, should pose no problems."My character, Lumen, unexpectedly comes into Dexter's life," Stiles says cryptically. "She's gone through this trauma and has tried to overcome it. She has a huge amount of vulnerability."( read moreCollapse )
