Gillian Anderson and documentary filmmaker Julian Ozanne have separated after 16 months of marriage, their lawyers said Monday.
"Gillian Anderson and her husband, Julian Ozanne, are saddened to announce that their marriage is at an end and they are in the process of separating," said a statement released by Schillings law firm.
"At this difficult time they request that their privacy is respected. There will be no further comment."
The couple married at a friend's beach house on Lamu's Shella island, off Kenya's Indian Ocean coast.
Anderson, 37, who starred as agent Dana Scully in TV's "The X-Files," has an 11-year-old daughter, Piper, from her previous marriage to production designer Clyde Klotz.
