Who Is the New Actor Playing Dexter's Son Harrison on 'Dexter: New Blood'?

The last time Dexter Morgan saw his son Harrison he was just a child, but in Dexter: New Blood all that has changed.

Episode 1, "Cold Snap", saw the serial killer's son come back into his life after ten years apart, with the pair meeting again when Harrison broke into Dexter's home.

Given it's been so long since Dexter last saw his son, and Harrison has aged quite a bit, the actor playing the character has changed.

A number of actors have portrayed him over the years since the character was born in the original series' fourth season.

Here is everything you need to know about the new actor.

Who Is Playing Dexter's Son Harrison in Dexter: New Blood?

A number of actors have played Harrison over the years, from Seasons 5 to 7 the character was portrayed by twins Evan George and Luke Andrew Kruntchev.

While in Season 8 Jadon Wells portrayed the character, with Lucas Adams briefly appearing as the character at 17-years-old.

But it is Jack Alcott who was chosen to portray the character in the sequel Dexter: New Blood, and while his age is not specified he is likely around the same age as Adams' iteration of the character.

Jack is set to play the character for all 10 episodes of the show, and he will take on the alias Randall throughout the season to match his father's hidden identity.

How Did Harrison Insert Himself Back Into Dexter's life?

The last time Harrison was seen he was with Dexter's girlfriend Hannah, who had gone on the run and taken the child with her to Buenos Aires.

Dexter was meant to join the pair in Argentina, but he instead faked his own death and began an isolated existence in New York state.

Harrison meets Dexter again when he breaks into his home and asks his father if he is indeed Dexter Morgan, and tells him he's his son.

At first Dexter tries to keep his identity a secret, with the prompting of spirit guide Debra, but later in the episode he stops Harrison from getting on a bus out of town and reveals the truth.

The pair decide to start life together anew, with their relationship to be explored further as the limited series progresses.

Who is Jack Alcott?

Alcott is a young, up-and-coming actor who has slowly been growing his repertoire since starting his acting career.

As well as Dexter: New Blood, Alcott has had a main role in the TV mini-series The Good Lord Bird, and he also appeared in one episode of The Blacklist.
