1. Dana Delany was born in 1955 in New York.

2. She stands at 5' 5¾" (1.67 m).

3. She was nominated for Emmy for 5 times, 4 of which were for the ABC show China Beach. She played a nurse in this drama about the Vietnam War. The show lasted four seasons (1988-1991), so she was nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for all seasons! She won 2 of these Emmys for her role in China Beach, one in 1989 and one in 1992.

Her 5th Emmy nomination was for a guest role in the CBS series Family Law (1999-2002) starring Kathleen Quinlan. It was a crime drama/romance series that lasted for 3 seasons.

4. She was nominated for Golden Globe twice for her role in China Beach. Her nominations were in 1990 and 1991.

5. She has been appearing on the screen since 1978. Her first credited role (as listed on IMDB) is in the 1978’s TV Series Ryan’s Hope.

6. Currently, she is starring in the ABC medical crime drama Body of Proof as the brilliant medical examiner Megan Hunt who has some emotional challenges to overcome. The show is on its second season.

7. She prefers dating younger men.

8. She played one of the desperate housewives on the Wisteria Lane during the show’s fourth, fifth and sixth seasons. According to the episodes, she was an old neighbor who moved back to the lane and was good friends with Susan. However her friendship was challenged as she had a big secret, and she also fell for Mike (Susan’s then ex, played by James Denton) and started dating him. Her role in the series ended as her heterosexual character fell for the beautiful stripper Robin (played by Julie Benz). Funnily enough, Mike had picked Susan over Dana Delaney’s character Katherine. Robin was a stripper working for the strip club Susan’s ex-husband had owned without her knowing and she had found about the club as he had left it to her in her will.

Roswell fans might remember Julie Benz as the high school guidance with an agenda, and Angel fans as Darla, Angel’s ex and his sire.

9. Dana Delany is one of the few actresses who likes television and movies more than the stage.

10. She was the original choice to play Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO series Sex and the City. Sarah Jessica Parker was cast instead.

11. In 2012, she is set to star in the action/drama Freelancers alongside Robert De Niro, Forest Whitaker.
