Just a week after winning a Golden Globe for his serial killer star turn on Showtime's Dexter, the actor was named outstanding actor in a drama series at Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. And, he told PEOPLE backstage, his cancer is in remission.
"I'm two-thirds of the way through this treatment that already has this thing in remission," he said. "It's nice in the homestretch to have this kind of shock of positive energy. It's a celebration."
