!!Tropes
* FakeMixedRace: [[invoked]] A rare inversion. She sometimes plays full-blooded Asian characters despite being biracial.
* FakeNationality: [[invoked]] She has played several different people of varying Asian descent, an [[{{Mayincatec}} Aztec]] [[NubileSavage princess]], and an American CIA agent in ''Torchwood''.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: The "ch" in Dichen is a normal English "ch"(like chair), but the "ch" in "Lachman" is more like a "k," so her name is pronounced "Dee-chen Lack-man".
* MsFanservice: A role she often slips into.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: {{Averted}}, she does a very good American accent. In fact, it's rare to hear her normal Australian accent.
* PlaysGreatEthnics: [[invoked]] Due to her borderline AmbiguouslyBrown features, she is popularly cast as any number of non-white characters.
* StatuesqueStunner: 5'8" and always portrayed as attractive.
