Carly Chaikin is known for playing the aloof Darlene on "Mr. Robot," but there are a lot of things that fans may not know about the actress. Here are five of them.

1. She has eleven tattoos.

In an interview with Glamour, the actress shared: "I have a lot of quotes and words. I have Bob Dylan lyrics on my ribs ... But I think my favorite one is the 'LB' on my middle finger. 'LB' stands for Lavender Bunny — the name of my childhood stuffed animal.

2. She's a "diehard" Bob Dylan fan.

The actress said that she and her father have a running joke about her meeting Dylan. She said she would get the musician to sign under her tattoo of his lyrics and have the signature tattooed.

3. She's tech-savvy.

Carly Chaikin considers herself a techie, but nothing close to her "Mr. Robot" character Darlene.

"I do wish that I could really learn how to hack, because I think that would be really cool," the actress told Hello Giggles. "But that will come in the future."

4. She's a painter.

The actress is a self-taught painter who has exhibited some of her work in 2014 in Los Angeles. The art show was called "Without Skin."

Speaking of her background in painting the actress told Nylon: "My mom put me in art classes when I was younger, and I painted in class throughout middle and high school. But besides that, I'm self-taught. When I was 17, I started to paint really seriously, and we put an art studio in my house."

5. She's a writer.

Chaikin wrote a series of articles for Parade magazine as her "Suborgatory" character Dalia Royce. The actress also wrote a short film in 2012 titled "Nowhere to Go." Chaikin also co-wrote the HelloGiggles series "Literally."
