Los Angeles: Jennifer Carpenter, best known for her role in `The Exorcism of Emily Rose`, is set to divorce from husband Michael C Hall after just one and a half years of marriage.
The couple, who work together on the hit show `Dexter`, married in December 2008. The pair came into the media spotlight earlier this year after it was revealed that Hall had been diagnosed with Hodgkin`s lymphoma.
However, their representatives have now said, "Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C Hall have filed for divorce," reported Entertainment Weekly.
The statement added that the split was amicable. Hall, who plays the anti-hero `Dexter Morgan` on the hit US show, received his fifth Golden Globe nomination on Tuesday and `Dexter` was recently renewed for a sixth season after recording impressive viewing figures.
Carpenter, who plays Dexter Morgan`s sister on the show, recently completed work on the forthcoming crime-horror movie `The Factory`, which also stars John Cusack and Mae Whitman.
