November 25, 2010 | 10:03 am

Jennifercar Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, who play half-siblings on Showtime's "Dexter," knew they were taking a risk when their off-screen relationship a few years ago started developing into a romance.

"We were just friends, and it was very easy to be friends," Carpenter said. "We were both surprised when this other thing happened. We did a lot of talking about it -- can we kiss, what will that mean, will we damge the credibility of our characters? We were very practical."

She smiled: "But in the end, the heart wanted what the heart wanted."
