‘Dexter: New Blood’ Here’s Why Angela Bishop Actor Julia Jones Looks so Familiar

Dexter: New Blood has brought back a couple of familiar faces for the revival. Michael C. Hall returns to his titular role, and Jennifer Carpenter plays the ghost of Debra Morgan. However, the majority of the rest of the cast consists of brand new faces. One incredibly important character is Officer Angela Bishop, played by Julia Jones. Though Angela is a new character, you’ve probably seen Jones on your screen before.

Julia Jones plays Officer Angela Bishop 

Jones’ character Angela Bishop is the Chief of Police in Iron Lake, New York, where Dexter Morgan has taken up his residence. Angela is both the first female and the first Native American person to hold this position in Iron Lake. She is determined to uncover the truth about a pattern of crimes she notices in the area. 

Angela is also Dexter’s love interest, which certainly complicates things. It’s not entirely clear whether Dexter began dating her genuinely or out of a desire to keep an eye on things in Iron Lake. It’s quite possible that both are true. Angela also has a daughter who later befriends Harrison Morgan.
