A veteran British actress has landed a key role in the upcoming eighth (and possibly final) season of Showtime’s Dexter.

Charlotte Rampling has been cast in a recurring role as a neuro-psychiatrist who specializes in working with young psychopaths and profiling criminals in unorthodox ways. We hear the role has a significant impact on next season’s story.

Rampling was in The Avengers (okay, the original 1967 TV version of The Avengers, but still…) and is best known to U.S. audiences from her roles in films such as Stardust Memories (1980), The Verdict (1982) and playing the mother of Keira Knightley »
