She sings. She dances. She makes music videos. Suburgatory‘s Dalia Royce may be Chatswin High’s resident mean girl, but it’s kind of hard to hate her.
Whether she’s challenging her neighbor Tessa (Jane Levy) to a dance-off or burning up YouTube with her Rebecca Black-like single, “You Missed a Spot,” Carly Chaikin’s Dalia has quickly become a fan-favorite character on the ABC family comedy. Case in point: On last week’s episode, Dalia delivered a completely off-key and slightly off-lyric rendition of “Send in the Clowns” at Marty’s funeral. “I had an earpiece in my ear with the song and I kept messing up the first line,” Chaikin tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. “I guess in editing they thought it was funny and decided to use some of the wrong lines I did too.”
After first breaking out in dramas such as the 2009 Nicholas Sparks tearjerker The Last Song, Chaikin is enjoying the laughs, and even the many hours of dance rehearsal occasionally required of the role. “It is really nice to be able to now show that I can do comedy and I can do drama and I can play the b—- ,” she says. “It’s allowed me to broaden my horizons. Dalia has really allowed me to play something that I never thought I would be able to play. … TV always used to really scare me and when I saw this script, I was like this is the kind of show that I would gladly want to keep working on for 7-plus years because there is so much to it.”
Dalia will once again add to her impressive resume on Wednesday’s new episode (9:30/8:30c on ABC) when she takes it upon herself to give Mr. Wolfe (Rex Lee) a post-breakup makeover. “One of Dalia’s favorite things to do is get revenge, which ties into the rest of her story line throughout the season,” Chaikin says. “I think she’s good at getting back at people, and I think that she sees Mr. Wolfe and sees an opportunity in someone who is just losing it. She goes in and tries to help, or [does] what she thinks is helping.”
I am about a month and a half behind on news, so I am currently trying to catch up. My apologies!
When ABC’s “Suburgatory” first premiered, it was easy to dismiss the blonde and vapid Dalia Royce (Carly Chaikin) as just another stereotypical mean girl, but as the show has developed, so has Dalia — she’s become one of show’s most unexpected delights, with Chaikin’s deadpan delivery proving the perfect counterbalance for some of the comedy’s broader moments.
This week’s episode, titled “How to Be a Baby,” (Wednesday, March 6 at 9:30 p.m. EST) sees Dalia giving the lovelorn Mr. Wolfe (Rex Lee) some unexpected advice, as well as stealing two of the week’s most memorable scenes. HuffPost TV caught up with Chaikin to preview tonight’s episode and find out what’s ahead for our favorite spoiled Chatswinian.
In this week’s episode, we get to see a very special and unique Dalia trait, which is called “dry crying.” How did you come up with that performance?
Oh my God. I haven’t even seen that yet. Well, filming that was actually really funny. For that scene, we did a bunch of just random takes, where they just let the camera roll, and basically, I just did whatever came to mind and I cannot wait to see what they pick. We had one where it was an extreme close-up on my mouth … It was so funny.
The episode shows Dalia being an advice guru of sorts for a heartbroken Mr. Wolfe, but Dalia isn’t exactly the first person you’d think of when it comes to imparting wisdom …
I think Dalia is good at getting revenge. There’s stuff that comes out later in the season, and I think this kind of foreshadows that a little bit, about how Dalia wants to hurt people who hurt her … So any chance [she has] to get back at someone who has hurt [someone], she takes advantage of that opportunity to do that.
To win her beloved housekeeper back from another family, Dalia Royce (Carly Chaikin) decides to do like “Yeezy did Keezy” and writes a song expressing her love for Carmen (guest star Bunnie Rivera) complete with an elaborate fully-choreographed music video. This episode of “Suburgatory” airs Wednesday, December 5 (9:30pmET) on ABC.

Suburgatory launches its sophomore run on ABC, and get ready for more suburban hijinks because the new season doesn’t let up with the crazy. Though last season had its fair share of jaw-dropping moments, the second season will up the ante, series star Cheryl Hines (aka Dallas Royce) promises.
“This season, when you’re angry with someone, you can really be angry or in love or whatever it is,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. Hines’ on-screen daughter Dalia, played by the deadpan Carly Chaikin, echoed that sentiment: There’s “freedom now to really explore these crazy situations.” One of which includes Dallas and Dalia living out of their cars. (Yes, for real.) As Hines and Chaikin tell it, that won’t be all the Royces will be dealing with. Among other “issues”: divorce, racy seduction techniques and a surprising romance.
Hines and Chaikin give THR the lowdown on the season two moments to look out for, including their most absurd (and barely there) outfits; Dallas’ attempt at winning George (Jeremy Sisto) over; the arrival of Tessa’s mother (guest star Malin Akerman); and showcase just why they’re the funnest mother-daughter pair on television.
When Suburgatory‘s Carly Chaikin came to visit our office, I have to admit, I was surprised. Unlike her hot-pink-wearing, bleach blonde character, the 22-year-old actress was wearing black leather, her hair was dark blonde, and she confidently rocked her 11 tattoos. Dalia Royce, who?
Glamour: OK, so how much fun do you have on the set of Suburgatory?
Carly Chaikin: I have the best time ever. I couldn’t be luckier to wake up every morning and be so excited to get to work, even if it’s five in the morning. The cast is all really close. Jane [Levy] is one of my best friends.
Glamour: You seem really different from your character, Dalia.
Carly Chaikin: She’s literally the antithesis of me! I actually originally auditioned for the role of Tessa. I had dark hair when I went in, but Emily Kapnek [the creator] said she wanted to see me for Dalia. I thought my agent was kidding. I’ve never gotten to play a character like Dalia–so deadpanned–and I have a lot of fun with her.
Glamour: So how about that bleach blonde do of yours?
Carly Chaikin: In one day, I had my hair dyed blonde and got a spray tan to look like Dalia. I woke up the next morning, looked in the mirror, and almost started crying. I’m a natural brunette.
