Dana Delany

Dana Delany made her mark as Army nurse Colleen McMurphy on ABC-TV’s critically acclaimed
series China Beach, for which she received two Emmy Awards and four nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Over the course of her career, Delany has taken on a number of high-profile television roles, from a brilliant medical examiner in ABC’s Body of Proof to Katherine Mayfair on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. She costarred with Ron Perlman in the Amazon Studios drama series Hand of God, played Edith Roosevelt to Aidan Quinn’s TR in The American Guest on HBO, and is currently costarring with Sylvester Stallone in the new hit series Tulsa King on Paramount +.

She has also been the voice of Lois Lane on Superman: The Animated Series, The Batman, and Justice League. On film, she was the voice of Andrea Beaumont in the cult favorite Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993) and appeared in several features including Light Sleeper (1992), HouseSitter (1992), Tombstone (1993), and Fly Away Home (1996), to name a few.

Following her graduation from Wesleyan University, Delany went to New York where she soon debuted on Broadway in Hugh Leonard’s A Life. Critical acclaim in several off-Broadway productions including Nicholas Kazan’s Blood Moon led to her arrival in Los Angeles for the west coast production of the controversial drama. Additional theatre credits include Translations on Broadway, Much Ado About Nothing at the Old Globe Theatre, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Dinner with Friends, alternating roles in New York, L.A., and Boston. Delany also starred in the premiere of The Parisian Woman at South Coast Repertory, The Night of the Iguana at A.R.T., and, most recently, the premiere of Good Night Nobody at the McCarter Theater.

A favorite production was Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties at MCC Theater, where Delany met Jen Silverman, Mike Donahue, and Dane Laffrey. She is thrilled to be collaborating with them on Highway Patrol, a new play that will makes its premiere at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago in January 2024.
