Dana Delany good-naturedly “blames” Nathan Fillion for her casting as medical examiner Dr. Megan Hunt on her hit new “Body of Proof” series — since it was her appearance as an FBI agent on his “Castle” whodunnit that put her into the minds of her “Proof” producers last year. Now she thinks Fillion should guest on “Body of Proof.”
“It’s quid pro quo — the perfect ABC cross-promotional opportunity,” she says. Such a guesting would have to wait awhile, since “Body of Proof” has already wrapped production of its first season.
When we spoke to the actress for AARP.org, she noted that whether “Body of Proof” works out or not, she’d be fine with the outcome, because there are plenty of other activities that spark her interest:
“I’d be happy to spend the rest of my life traveling. I’d like to get back to New York and do more theater. I like to do things that scare me; singing in public scares me, so I’d like to get over that fear. I’d like to develop a quirky smaller type show for cable. There are so many things I’d like to do.”
As it stands, “Body of Proof” will be keeping her busy, at least into the 2011-2012 season.
