Since I had to dig it up for a Tumblr post (which you can see here if you like), here's a link to Greg Aronowitz's blog post in which he tells the, er, fascinating story of how Delenn's makeup in the B5 pilot got to where we saw it (and from where), and how Mira Furlan made sure we got the Delenn we know and love.

Choice quote:

"Mira suddenly shot up and said, "HIM!?! Did you say make HIM more human?” For the first time, Mira discovered that Delenn was supposed to be a man. I guess all of the descriptions in the script stated “frail alien” and “wise mystic”, but never really called out a sex. The gender change was something JMS was going to keep secret till the series needed the curve, but I guess it was kept TOO secret!"

PS: Why is the "preview" function on Dreamwidth totally broken? I hate not being able to check my HTML when I'm doing something other than just text and normal links...
