Born in New York City, Delany had always known that she wanted to be an actress even at an early age. While growing up in Stamford, Connecticut, her parents would bring her along to Broadway shows, and that is where her fascination with acting began. After completing her high school education in Philips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, she later graduated with her degree in theatre from Wesleyan University.
Delany’s career started with small roles during her years as a college student, but she immediately hit it off in television right after graduation. Her first projects were mostly minor roles or appearances including in the television shows “Ryan’s Hope”, “Love of Life” and “As the World Turns”. Her name also gained attention when she started doing TV Movies like “Threesome”, “The Streets” and “Liberty”, but though she was very active in television and her net worth was beginning to grow, none made her successful just yet.
In 1988, Delany’s career and life changed when she was cast in the part of Colleen McMurphy in the television show “China Beach”. Her performance was well received by the audience and even critics, that led her to win a couple of Primetime Emmy Awards. Delany played the role until the show ended in 1991 which changed her career status in Hollywood and even raised her net worth.
Right after “China Beach”, Delany focused on doing movies and TV specials like “Housesitter”, “Tombstone”, “Light Sleeper” and the controversial “Exit to Eden”. She also lent her voice to some animated series like “Wing Commander Academy” and “Superman: The Animated Series”. Although Delany was very busy with continued guest appearances on various television shows, she had a hard time getting to star in another regular series.
After many short lived television shows like “Pasadena” in 2001 and “Presidio Med” in 2002 and countless guest roles in several shows, Delany once again landed a very memorable role in the series “Desperate Housewives”. Although she was originally offered to play one of its main characters, Delany came in the show in 2007 and played the role of Katherine Mayfair – although only a support role, Delany’s performance gained positive reactions among fans and she stayed with the show until 2010. Once again she became a household favourite and tremendously increased her wealth.
Today, Delany is still active in the world of television, recently joining the cast of the television show “Hand of God”. Aside from acting, she is also an active supporter of several advocacies including Scleroderma Research Foundation, Creative Coalition and Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
In terms of her personal life, Delany has had various relationships in the past but has never been married, so remains single.
