In 1990, at the age of sixteen, Dotchin began modelling. Her first audition was for the role of Kirsty Knight in the long-running soap opera Shortland Street. At the time, Shortland Street was a private hospital, and Kirsty was one of the two receptionists. Later she moved 'upstairs', where she became PA to the clinic's medical director.

North American audiences were introduced to Angela by her roles in the Xena: Warrior Princess series and the Hercules spin-off show Young Hercules. Her popularity from these roles helped her land a starring role opposite Bruce Campbell in the short-lived television series Jack of All Trades.

Subsequently, she has appeared as Auckland private investigator Jodie Keane in a trilogy of made-for-TV thrillers: Lawless, Lawless: Dead Evidence and Lawless: Beyond Justice.

Dotchin moved to Britain in 2002, and currently works as a personal assistant in the fashion industry.
