'Dexter' exclusive: 'ER' actress cops recurring role

Posted on

april-lee-hernandezImage Credit: Jim Spellman/WireImage.comApril Lee Hernandez has landed what I’m fairly certain is the last new recurring role of Dexter‘s upcoming fifth season. The actress — best known for her supporting work in ’07’s Freedom Writers and as Nurse Inez on ER — will play a new cop (presumably) working in Miami Metro’s homicide department.

Hernandez joins fellow season 5 newbies Julia Stiles (as Dex’s new pal), Maria Doyle Kennedy (as an Irish nanny), and Shawn Hatosy (as someone…who’s, um, not nice).
