Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser’s romance that began on the set of AMC’s “Mad Men” is over.
On Wednesday, Us Weekly reported that Kartheiser filed for a divorce from Bledel on Aug. 10 in Putnam County Supreme Court in New York. A representative for Kartheiser did not immediately respond to the Times request for comment, while a legal representative for Bledel declined to comment.
Kartheiser and Bledel met on the set of Emmy-winning Mad Men. Pete Campbell, Kartheiser’s publicity manager, was having an affair with Beth Dawes of Bledel. They began dating post-production in early 2012 and made their relationship official on the red carpet later that year.
“We were absolutely professional,” Kartheiser previously told E! News. “We never saw each other. We never — it was nothing, it was just work.”
In March 2013, the actors got engaged. They wed in June 2014 in a quiet ceremony. In the fall of 2015, the couple welcomed a son. The marriage was the first for both actors.
Best known for her role as Rory Gilmore in Gilmore Girls, Bledel won her first Emmy in 2017 for her portrayal of Ofglen in The Handmaid’s Tale. Kartheiser received six Screen Actors Guild Award nominations — including two wins — for his ensemble performance on “Mad Men.”
