Wonder what Olivia D'Abo has been up to since "The Wonder Years"?

The 43-year-old actress, who played Kevin's hippie sister, Karen, on the ABC sitcom from 1988 to 1993, is back in the spotlight after splitting with her husband, music producer Patrick Leonard.

Although TMZ reports that the couple separated last August, Leonard did not file the divorce papers until last week in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences. D'Abo wed the "Like a Prayer" hit-maker in 2002, nine years after "The Wonder Years" ended its run.

After leaving the show, D'Abo spent the '90s taking small roles in major series like "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Party of Five." In 2001, she starred as a recurring mystery woman in "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," but has otherwise focused on voice acting, appearing in a number of animated series, including "Justice League/Justice League Unlimited," "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," and "Green Lantern: First Flight."

At the same time, D'Abo has performed in a variety of plays, including "The Odd Couple" on Broadway in 2005 opposite Matthew Broderick, and "Cyrano de Bergerac" in Los Angeles in 2010. In 2011, she won a Broadway World Los Angeles Award for her role as a middle-aged landlady in "Entertaining Mr. Sloane."

D'Abo is also an accomplished musician, singer, and songwriter, having mastered both the guitar and the piano. She released the album "Not TV" (produced by Leonard) in 2008, and performed a duet with Seal on "Broken," which appears in the 2006 film "Loving Anabelle."

As of fall 2012, D'Abo has reportedly been in Germany filming "Paganini: The Devil's Violinist," about the 19th-century Italian violinist.
