Paul's rep confirmed the separation to People magazine but said the pair "will continue to remain good friends".

Paul, 31, who plays vampire Stefan Salvatore in TVD, met Torrey on the set of Killer Movie in 2007. They dated for four years before tying the knot in a private ceremony held in New York in April 2011.

Torrey, 29, acted alongside her husband on the third and fourth seasons of TVD when she joined as Dr. Meredith Fell. She also appeared as a recurring character on One Tree Hill.

Paul has previously said that working alongside Torrey was good for their marriage.

Speaking at a TVD convention in Paris last year, Paul said: "It's fantastic because otherwise we'd be 2000 miles away, Los Angeles and Georgia, so it's very nice to be in the same geographical location."

The couple's last public appearance was at the BloodyCon 2013 vampire convention in Neuss, Germany, where they both looked happy as they gave a presentation to the crowd.
