Julia Stiles played the victim-turned-hero on “Dexter” last fall and the fans are still clamoring for her character Lumen to come back. She was on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” Friday night (Aug. 12) and the show was the hot topic.

“It was great, I was thrilled to be a part of it. I came in in the fifth season, so it already was a well-oiled machine at that point,” says Stiles. She also assures Fallon that Michael C. Hall is not a murderer in real life and that she’s very excited about her Emmy nomination.

She also relays a very funny story about running out of money in Cuba and receiving all these congratulatory emails about her Golden Globe nomination. “Dexter” Season 5 hits DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday (Aug. 16).
