Dafne was born in Madrid. She is the daughter of actor Will Keen and actress Maria Fernandez Ache. Growing up in a household of established actors, it was only natural for Dafne to enter show business herself.

Her acting debut was in television. Her very first acting stint was in the BBC TV series The Refugees in 2014. She played the role of Ana “Ani” Cruz Oliver. Unfortunately, the series was short-lived and ended after just one season in 2015.
After the lukewarm reception to her first acting assignment, Dafne took a two-year break. She returned to acting in a supporting role in the Hollywood hit, Logan, featuring the famous Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman. She played the role of mutant child clone of Wolverine, Laura. The movie was a critical and commercial success. Dafne’s performance also earned many accolades. She earned various nominations such as the Chicago Film Critics Association and Saturn Awards. She also won an Empire Award as Best Newcomer for the same role.
This movie reintroduced Dafne to showbiz fans and made production outfits take note once again of her acting talent. Dafne was cast in a lead role in 2019 for the BBC/HBO adaptation of His Dark Materials trilogy, where she played the role of Lyca Belacqua. The series got a positive reception, and Dafne earned rave reviews for her portrayal. Dafne even earned a BAFTA Cymru nomination for Best Actress in 2020. The trilogy is currently running and is on its 3rd year as a series.
Dafne continued getting acting assignments in 2020. She even starred opposite Andy Garcia for the film Ana. The comedy-drama received mixed reviews, but Dafne earned positive feedback for her stellar performance in the film.
In her young four-year acting career, she has already received accolades, such as the MTV Movie & TV awards, where she won Best Duo with Hugh Jackman for Logan, and nominations in the Chicago Film Critics Association, Dublin Film Critics’ Circle, Seattle Film Critics Circle, London Film Critics Circle and Critics Choice Movie Awards, all for her performance in Logan.
