Dalia Royce
Character Name: Dalia Royce


Dallas Royce (mother), Steven Royce (father)
Gender: Female

Portrayed By:

Carly Chaikin

First Appearance:


Dalia Royce is one of the characters on the show Suburgatory. Her mother is Dallas Royce and her father is Steven Royce . She is played by actress Carly Chaikin.


Dalia is an obsession with gossip, dating, texting, shopping, beauty products. She's lived in the lap of luxury her entire life and is evident in her clothes and her car. It is revealed she is close friends with a group of other blonde popular students, "The KKK" - Kenzie, Kaitlin and Kimantha. She apparently was also friends with Misty. She has a pet horse named Cashmere. 

She is lactose intolerant and gets a bad case of gas when she eats cheese and possibly when she has clam chowder, as remarked by Dallas and later Tessa in "Don't Call Me Shirley".

In "Don't Call Me Shirley," Dalia also states that she felt it was "tragic" that the only makeup Tessa owned was purchased from a drugstore, though Tessa quips that it is also "tragic" for Dalia to load her eyelashes up with so much mascara that she can hardly blink. Dalia insists she can blink and attempts to do so, though she actually cannot.


Dalia can be described as an air-headed, catty, wealthy, gossipy, conceited, sassy, stuck-up and mean-spirited, spoiled rotten teenage girl. Often, she seems unaware of basic facts since they don't have anything to do with fashion and gossip, including when she thought "New York, New York" had an extra "New York" in it. Dallas has also mentioned that Dalia had failed her career aptitude test, which led Dallas to put Dalia to the job of planning Tessa's 16th birthday party. Apparently, she is so spoiled by Dallas that she was jealous when Dallas got Yakult and started smothering her, so she yells at Yakult that she wished she would drop dead out of envy.

Dalia's tall figure

Physical Appearance and StyleEdit

Dalia is tall (however she frequently wears stilettos,) and slender with fair skin with "icy" blue eyes (as stated by Tessa in Victor Ha.) She has plump lips and usually shows no sign of emotion (the only time she does in "Pilot" is when her and her friends were picking on Lisa in the girl's room). She speaks with an exaggerated vocal fry (also known as "creaky voice"). She has long, straight blonde hair. Her outfits consist of very fashionable expensive pieces that are often revealing.


She kissed Evan in "Leaving Chatswin" and she learned yiddish for him. She gets money from holding a trance party to get a tattoo of Evan's face on her back. It is later revealed in "Decemberfold" that her and Jenna Werner had hooked up a couple times a starting in "Thanksgiving", and Dalia was jealous of Jenna going to Brown, so she decided to start a relationship with Evan to get back at her. Dalia sends Jenna pictures of Evan and her, and a picture of her tattoo that is above her butt. 

In season 3, she has a matchmaker set her up with a unknown guy, after Dalia realizes that Tessa is off dating guys, and she doesn't have anyone. 

It is unknown if she still harbors feelings towards Jenna.
