Her first notable appearance was in a video clip of the song "Tegeesh neaeesh", by Ali El Haggar. Dalia’s modeling career paved the road for her acting profession. She has worked with huge stars such as Adel Imam in his film Al Safara fe Al Emara along with other comedians and singers including Hany Ramzy, Moustafa Amar and Khaled Selim.
Dalia said in one of her interviews on television that it wishes to embody the role of pharaonic Queen "Nefertiti" on the screen, denying rumors that she was reluctant about the portrayal of the Queen "Cleopatra" by the Syrian actress Solaf Fawakhirji.
In August 2008 she married Fred Morse, grandson of artist Farid Shawki,from his daughter the producer Nahed Farid Shawki.

El Behery signed on as a Goodwill Ambassador for World Stroke Day in November 2010, helping to shed light on the awareness campaign to prevent and fight stroke. She has expressed her happiness selected for this position, saying she was looking for social work for a long time so as to help educate people from diseases that could affect them. Stroke is particularly widespread, affecting one in six people worldwide.
El Behery said the Egyptian people’s fight for their rights has made her very pleased. In a telephone conversation with the channel “Al Arabiya”, she expressed her happiness with the peaceful Egyptian Revolution of 2011 and the demands for basic rights like freedom, political reform and a joint effort for nation building. In the meantime, Dalia said the absence of security made her feel worried, like the rest of the population. The worry, she explained, has been getting constantly worse after hundreds of prisoners fled the prison of Al Faiyum. She added that the youth revolt had ignited in the Egyptian streets and she thanked her fellow Egyptians who united to guard public property, especially the Egyptian Museum.
