Irasema Dilián was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Polish parents. She began her film career in Italy, having appeared in Vittorio de Sica's Maddalena, Zero for Conduct. Over the next few years she worked for de Sica, Riccardo Freda, and Mario Soldati, together with actors like Alida Valli and Rossano Brazzi.

She appeared in four Spanish films between the years 1946 and 1949 before moving to Mexico and making her debut in Girls in Uniform (1951), a remake of the 1931 German picture Mädchen in Uniform. In 1952, Dilián was nominated for an Ariel Award for Stolen Paradise. Over the next several years, Dilián starred in a number of important films with such major stars as Arturo de Córdova, Pedro Armendáriz and Pedro Infante, and played the leading female role in Luis Buñuel's Wuthering Heights (1954).

Some of her Mexican films were scripted by her Italian husband, Dino Maiuri. Dilián's last Mexican-made film was Pablo and Carolina (1957), though she did appear in several co-productions in 1956. In 1958, she appeared in her last Spanish-speaking film.[1]
