Claire Holt and her husband of almost one year are divorcing.

According to the documents, Kaplan claims that the former couple separated on April 24, 2017.

On May 2, Holt, who played Rebekah Mikaelson on The Originals, filed a response via her attorney, Joel D. Schwartz, to the Superior Court of Los Angeles. In the documents obtained by PEOPLE, Holt claims that the couple separated on April 27, which is three days after Kaplan alleged that they split.

Holt, who took Kaplan’s last name when they wed, is requesting in the documents that her former name (Holt) be restored.

The 28-year-old Australian actress and Kaplan announced their engagement on July 13, 2015 and wed April 28, 2016.
