Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter Split

Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall, who play brother and sister on the Showtime series Dexter, are ending their two-year marriage.

“Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have filed for divorce,” their reps said in a joint statement.

The announcement comes just one day after Jennifer, who portrays Debra Morgan on Dexter, attended the Dexter season finale party without Michael. 

Jennifer, 31, is also known for her roles as Emily Rose in The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and as the lead role in the 2008 horror movie Quarantine.

Do you wonder if the fact that they worked together had something to do with the split?  Spending countless hours on the same set, as well as playing brother and sister on a show could likely kill any romance between a couple, no?

The couple met on the set of the Showtime series and married on New Year’s Eve in 2008.  Jennifer stood by Michael’s side during his battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

She gushed that he’s “the sexiest man alive, one of the best we’ve got. He’s incredible and if anyone deserves accolades, it’s him.”
