  • Although she is superb at comedic acting, she's able to hold her own in dramas as well.

    Delta Burke has been one of my favorite actresses for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I watched her on "Designing Women", and her portrayal of southern belle Suzanne was always so much fun. Suzanne was always my favorite character on the show.

    After she left the show, I continued to catch her performances. I watched "Women of the House" and "Delta", and most recently, I watched her series "DAG". Although none of those achieved success, it was fun to get to see her back on television.

    I've also been able to catch some of her dramatic roles, including the recent Lifetime movies "Dangerous Child" and "Going for Broke". In both movies, she demonstrates that although she is superb at comedic acting, she's able to hold her own in dramas as well.moreless
