Carly Chaikin is an American television and film actress. She is known best for her role as Dalia Royce on the ABC comedy, "Suburgatory," and has also starred in films such as "The Last Song" in 2010 and "In a World..." in 2013.
Carly Hannah Chaikin was born on March 26, 1990 in Santa Monica, California, the daughter of a psychotherapist mother and cardiologist father. While interested in the performing arts from a young age, it wasn't until Carly was 12 years old that she first knew she wanted to be a professional actress. What turned her on to the craft, you ask? Believe it or not, it was simply because she was cast in a play while attending sleepaway camp. By the time she was 19 years old, she was already cast in her first film, "The Consultants."
Since 2009, Carly's career as an actress has been on a steady rise. The following year, she was cast in the film, "The Last Song," which also starred actress Miley Cyrus, who was herself still a very hot commodity for playing the titular role on the children's TV series, "Hannah Montana." Needless to say, all the attention her costar brought to the film also put Carly on the map in a big way. So much, in fact, that she was cast in a lead role on the popular ABC comedy series, "Suburgatory," the following year.
To go along with her ever growing list of TV and film credits, Carly is also a writer and producer, having done both on the 2012 short, "Nowhere to Go," which was also honored at the First Glance Film Festival in 2013. Along with this, Carly is also quite a talented artist. In 2014, she held her first art show, which was titled "Without Skin," at The Salon at Automatic Sweat on April 10, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
