Dwan originally wanted to be a ballet dancer. She was chosen to dance with Rudolf Nureyev in the Ballet San Jose's production of "Coppélia" in Dublin when she was 12. She left school at 14, after winning a scholarship to attend the Dorothy Stevens School of Ballet in Leeds.
Dwan's first movie was playing the role of Agnes in an adaptation of Oliver Twist, co-starring Elijah Wood and Richard Dreyfuss.
Dwan's first regular series role was as Princess Deirdre, the Mystic Knight of Air, on Saban's Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. She played the role of Orla in eight episodes of RTÉ's "The Big Bow Wow" in 2004, the role of Zoe Burke in 21 episodes of the Irish soap opera Fair City from 2006 to 2007, and the role of Angel Islington on Rock Rivals.
In January 2009 she starred opposite Martin Sheen as "Marika" in Bhopal: Prayer for Rain.
She performed in Samuel Beckett's Not I in London's Battersea Arts Centre in 2005, and was interviewed with Billie Whitelaw as part of the Beckett celebrations on BBC Radio 3. Dwan performed the piece again in July 2009 at the Southbank Centre in London in a time of nine minutes and fifty seconds. The event was repeated at Reading University in May 2013. In October 2016, Dwan starred in No's Knife, adapted from Beckett's, Stories and Texts for Nothing, at London's Old Vic.
