‘Dexter’ alum Julie Benz marries Rich Orosco

Good news!

Mrs. Carter: Julie Benz is married — and thankfully, it’s far less tragic than what happened to her character Rita on “Dexter.”

On Saturday, Benz married (per Us Weekly) her boyfriend of the past four years in Rich Orsoco — who first popped the question back in June 2011. This is the second marriage for the actress (whose recent credits include “No Ordinary Family” and “A Gifted Man”), who was married to actor John Cassir from 1998 until 2007.

Benz has not appeared on “Dexter” since a guest role via flashback in the season 5 premiere back in 2010 — meanwhile, the hit show returns to Showtime with new episodes beginning on September 30 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Are you happy for Benz?
