Biography

As a newcomer to the industry, budding star Carly Chaikin established herself quickly in the public eye, landing parts in movies such as the Nicholas Sparks tearjerker "The Last Song" (2010) starring Miley Cyrus, before landing her big break playing snarky mean-girl Dalia Royce on the hit sitcom "Suburgatory" (ABC, 2011-). It was a role that immediately connected with viewers. Although the show focused around the character of high school student Tessa Altman (Jane Levy), Chaikin proved to be the scene-stealer, punctuating comedic moments with her blasé yet barbed line delivery. The role was not something she initially gravitated toward; she originally auditioned for the lead role, which she felt was more like her real personality. But the show's creator, Emily Kapnek, saw something different in her and convinced Chaikin that she would be perfect as Tessa's nemesis instead. Chaikin may have initially felt the role was a stretch, but fan reaction proved differently.
