In 1999, casting began for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the film adaptation of British author J. K. Rowling's best-selling novel. Casting agents found Dahlia through the director's daughter's school play. Rowling supported Dahlia from her first screen test.
Dahlia began her career in music, performing acoustic shows under her own name around Manchester, she found that being on stage "made me feel naked. It was honestly so raw and so terrifying that I didn't want to do it again.".
In April 2013, Dahlia made her West End debut at the Phoenix Theatre in London as "Girl" in the musical Once. Her performance received rave reviews, and she won Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
Dahlia has spoken out about awareness of breast cancer. No one in her family has it but it runs in one of her best friend's side.
Dahlia purchased an apartment in the East Village in 2011, and currently lives in London.
