Dana Delany and Jonathan Meath

In this special episode of Every Quarter, we catch up with Emmy Award-winning actress Dana Delany and producer Jonathan Meath, both from Phillips Academy’s Class of 1974. They take us back to how they became friends starring in theatre and film productions on campus, discuss their impressive careers in the entertainment industry, and share plenty of inside jokes and stories that bring back wonderful memories.

A few fun highlights from the conversation:

  • Jonathan and Dana reminisce about their class’ infamous “Mother Phillips” photo, and Dana shares how it became a topic for her appearance for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
  • Jonathan talks about being the #1 Santa Clause in the world and how his likeness is used by Coca-Cola in their marketing campaigns.
  • Dana reflects on past roles, and how she now only chooses to play complex characters that resonate with her.
