Early life

Dickie was born in East Kilbride, Scotland, but spent part of her childhood in different parts of Scotland (Dumfries and Galloway, Perthshire and Ayrshire), due to frequent moves by her family. From an early age she discovered her passion for acting, which her parents also supported. Coming from a working-class family (her father was a farmer and gardener) in which no family member had been in the arts before, she was embarrassed to call herself an actress since she was afraid to be called pretentious. Her desire for drama classes supported her to overcome her insecurities that appeared through the frequent school changes and helped her dealing with adjusting to new people and surroundings. After leaving school she went to college in Kirkcaldy to study for a national certificate in drama. In 1990, she won a place at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and decided to stay in Glasgow. Dickie started to work in theatre and had the opportunity to perform with some of Scotland's best companies. She finally achieved her breakthrough in 2000, in the BBC Scotland / Raindog series, Tinsel Town.

In the stage play Aalst, based on the true story of a couple who had killed their children and were sentenced in a high-profile trial, Dickie plays one of the parents. Her motivation to perform this role was her feeling of "responsibility to play people like that and to give them a voice. People that are not necessarily good or nice and have good lives."
