Body of Proof is such a different show from Desperate Housewives. Which does Dana Delany prefer?
—Jerry Tiegel, Providence, R.I.
Delany, 55, who now plays medical examiner Megan Hunt on Body of Proof, says she misses the cast and crew of Housewives—but she’s always had a thing for the medical profession. “I think in another life I was a doctor,” she says jokingly. She even jumped at a recent invitation to watch a certain not-for-the-squeamish procedure. “I encourage everyone to see an autopsy. It’s fantastic. It will make you really want to take care of your body and have even more awe for what we’ve all been given.”
