* Prior to playing the title role on ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', Michael C. Hall played David on ''Series//{{SixFeetUnder}}'', an undertaker who was also prone to having imaginary conversations with his dead father, as well as the corpses he was working on. David was also [[Gayngst a devout Christian who struggled to reconcile his homosexuality with his faith]] and one of the most memorable of his imaginary "friends" was a young gay man followed him around taunting him about how he would go to hell. There was also a friendly young gang member who had been killed in a turf war, who convinced the normally meek David to take a firm/threatening stand in a business meeting with a rival real estate company. David also becomes badly traumatized at one point and - when he realises he has healed enough to resume his life again. The imaginary friends make David seem a little bit schizoidal, but they were a useful storytelling device because otherwise David , who was very introverted, anal and poor at communicating his feelings, would have come across as very one-dimensional and incomprehensible. His imaginary friends also seem to make him more functional, both because they act as a support network for him and because they make him more sensitive to the needs of his clients.
