An Emmy Award-winning actress, Dana Delany first made her mark on primetime audiences during the 1980s as the star of the Vietnam War-set medical drama "China Beach" (ABC, 1988-1991). After her role as a mild-mannered Midwestern nurse with the highly desirable hairstyle, Delany became a frequent star in made-for-TV-movies like "Choices of the Heart: The Margaret Sanger Story" (1995) and "True Women" (CBS, 1997), where she embodied "every day" women who found great courage in the face of adversity. Feature films rarely offered as many challenging portraits of heroic women, and while Delany did make supporting film appearances, she spent the majority of her career as a mainstay on hour-long medical, family, and legal dramas, earning considerable attention for her run on the dramedy "Desperate Housewives" (ABC, 2004-2012). Meanwhile, Delany held down a lucrative side career as an animation voiceover artist, primarily playing Lois Lane in the DC animated universe as well as on "The Batman" (The WB/The CW, 2004-08). But it was live action where Delany truly thrived and after her run on "Desperate Housewives" ended, she moved on to another hit show, "Body of Proof" (ABC, 2011-13), where she played a former neurosurgeon turned medical examiner. Delany's performance confirmed that she was an actress of considerable range able to tackle a wide array of complicated roles.

QUOTES FROM Dana Delany CHARACTERS

Lisa says: I like butts. Men's beautiful behinds. You know what I like to do to gorgeous butts? I like to squeeze them, pinch them and caress them.

The Joker says: I'm impressed, lady. You're harder to kill than a cockroach on steroids.

Andrea Beaumont says: So, you figured it out. [the Phantasm removes his mask to reveal Andrea Beaumont]

Andrea Beaumont says: So, you figured it out.

The Joker says: Gotta hand it to you, nice scheme. Costume's a bit theatrical, but hey, who am I to talk?

Andrea Beaumont says: You're not smiling, Joker. I thought you found death amusing.

The Joker says: Oh, me? You won't hear a giggle out of me

Andrea Beaumont says: Hi. Hey, what happened to you? Trip over some loose cash? It's been three days since we met and still no calls. I figured you must be dead or something.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: You expect every guy you meet to call you up?

Andrea Beaumont says: The ones who are smart enough to dial a phone.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: So, tell me - with all that money and power, how come you always look like you want to jump off a cliff?

Andrea Beaumont says: Why do you care?

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: I don't. Mom was asking.
