Rutina Wesley is ending her marriage of almost a decade.

The True Blood actress, 34, who plays Tara Thornton on HBO's hit series, filed for divorce from Jacob Fishel on Friday, according to papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Citing irreconcilable differences, Wesley, who wed Fishel in June 2005, asks in the documents that the judge deny Fishel any spousal support. The pair has been separated since July. They have no children together.

Back in 2010, Wesley gushed about Fishel, her former Juilliard grad school peer, telling Essence, "We thought, 'If we could spend four years together at this crazy school, then we can make it the rest of our lives.' He's an amazing actor, cook and husband. I enjoy him immensely."
