Jodie Turner-Smith opened up about her divorce from Joshua Jackson for the first time during an interview with the UK’s Sunday Times over the weekend. The Queen & Slim actor filed for divorce from the Dawson’s Creek star in October of last year.

“I don’t think it’s a failure,” Turner-Smith said, referring to their marriage of four years. The pair also welcomed their three-year-old daughter, Juno Rose Diana Jackson, in April of 2020.

“We obviously had such a beautiful moment together. And now it’s time for a new moment for both of us. And how exciting!” she said. “The bravest thing in the world is to recognize when something’s not working and to make a move, and I always want to set that kind of example for my daughter.”

The Murder Mystery 2 actor added, “I believe that there are visible scars from staying in places that are not good for us. And they don’t just affect us, they affect everybody around us.”
