Emma Forrest filed for divorce from the Emmy-winning actor in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the end of their four year marriage.
Forrest is seeking physical custody of their 3-year-old daughter.
The pair married in June 2012. Mendelsohn won an Emmy Award earlier this year for his role in Netflix’s “Bloodline” series. He plays a high ranking officer responsible for completion of a super weapon in “Rogue One,” which is in the first stand-alone film set in the “Star Wars” universe.
Forrest is a British-born journalist and author.
The filing was first reported Thursday by celebrity website TMZ.
