Jennifer Leann Carpenter was born on December 7, 1979 in Louisville, Kentucky. She trained in acting at the Walden Theatre Conservatory program and later at Juilliard School in New York. Before she graduated, she performed alongside Liam Neeson and Laura Linney in the Broadway revival of The Crucible.
She made her screen debut in an uncredited role in 1999’s Nice Guys Sleep Alone, followed by small roles in D.E.B.S and White Chicks. She attracted significant attention for her portrayal of Emily Rose in 2005’s The Exorcism of Emily Rose. She then became known as Debra Morgan in the acclaimed TV series Dexter.
Has Jennifer Carpenter had Plastic Surgery?
The 34-year-old actress may have first caught attention for her jaw-dropping performance in The Exorcism of Emily Rose but that’s not all Carpenter has been accounted for over the years. It’s because the Dexter star has also sparked rumors of plastic surgery due to a physical transformation, particularly her nose, that people think came from a plastic surgeon’s operating table. According to some reports, Carpenter’s nose has improved when compared to the original one, which had a bigger and wider nasal tip.
Some people think that the rhinoplasty procedure that was performed on Carpenter was a good one because the result is so subtle that her nose still looks natural, even though it has already been reshaped with a more pointed tip. The plastic surgery reports about the actress are not as persistent and strong as other actors in Hollywood that Carpenter chose to just ignore the rumors.
