A lot of new faces will pop up during the fifth season of Showtime’s “Dexter,” one of them being Julia Stiles who’s slated to appear in an ambiguous role as a woman who could be a villain but isn’t really (what the hell?). That description doesn’t tell you much so check out this interview from the network that features the actress discussing the character. We also have another photo of her from the show after the jump…

What can we say about Stiles’ character? Do we even know her name? Yes, she’s Lumen ” a psychologically and physically damaged woman who presents Dexter with a dilemma.”

According to Stiles, “In a weird way it reminds me of the making of the ‘Bourne’ movies,” she said. “The script is always changing, so you might shoot a scene and then all of a sudden you are handed pages, and you have to memorize your lines really quickly. It’s like acting in a vacuum a little bit. There’s a different kind of challenge, but part of me really likes it.”
