Paul Wesley, Torrey DeVitto Divorcing

Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto are getting divorced after just two years of marriage, reps for the actors said Tuesday.

The couple “have decided to amicably split” and “will continue to remain good friends,” their reps added.

The couple met in 2007 on the set of Killer Movie, and married in April 2011 in a private ceremony in New York City. They have no children together. Her soon-to-be ex-husband, 31-year-old Wesley, has been playing Stefan Salvatore since the series’ first season. He also began playing Silas, the first and most powerful vampire, in season 4.

DeVitto joined The Vampire Diaries as a recurring guest star during its third season in 2012. The 29-year-old plays Dr. Meredith Fell, a member of the Founder’s Council. DeVitto also plays Melissa Hastings on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. Melissa is the competitive older sister of Spencer (Troian Bellisario), whom the Liars once believed to be their omnipotent tormentor, “A.”

Wesley and DeVitto aren’t the only Vampire Diaries actors to call it quits recently. In May, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder ended their three-year relationship. The former couple were rumored to be dating in June 2011, but Somerhalder didn’t confirm the relationship until September 2012.

A source said that Dobrev and Somerhalder are “consummate professionals” and “will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started.”

Somerhalder plays Stefan Salvatore’s brother, Damon. Dobrev plays series protagonist Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce.

Last month, it was announced that DeVitto’s Pretty Little Liars co-star, Tammin Sursok, was pregnant with her first child with husband Sean McEwen. The 29-year-old plays Jenna Marshall.

The Vampire Diaries was renewed for a fifth season on February 11. On April 26, the CW announced that its spinoff, The Originals, had been ordered to series and is set to premiere this season. The fifth season of The Vampire Diaries will premiere on October 3.
