Felicitiy Dean's film career began when she was cast as Lady Jane Grey in the 1977 feature film The Prince and the Pauper opposite Mark Lester, Oliver Reed, Raquel Welch and Charlton Heston. In 1978 she was labelled "One of the 10 Women to Watch" in that year by Cosmopolitan magazine, and appeared in the rarely seen comedy film Son of Hitler, opposite Bud Cort and Peter Cushing.
In 1979 she was cast in the role of Caroline in the Mike Leigh film Who's Who. Felicity played the role of Dawn Meadows in Joseph Losey's 1985 feature film Steaming opposite Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles and Diana Dors. She also appeared that same year in Water, directed by Dick Clement. She played Sarah opposite Michael Caine, Billy Connolly and Leonard Rossiter.
In 1985 Felicity played Betsy in the Hugh Hudson film Revolution opposite Al Pacino and Donald Sutherland. She has continued to work with Pacino on his own personal projects.
In 1987 she played Cynthia Goodburn in The Whistle Blower, again opposite Michael Caine alongside Nigel Havers.
Felicity's TV work includes The Professionals entitled 'The Female Factor' starring opposite Gordon Jackson, Martin Shaw and Lewis Collins. English novelist Rebecca West, perhaps best known for her reports on the Nuremberg Trials, personally picked Felicity to play Laura Bowen, the heroine of her novel The Birds Fall Down in a five-part BBC adaptation produced by Jonathan Powell in 1978. Critically acclaimed,this led to her going on to play many parts on television including Guinevere in The Legend of King Arthur for the BBC in 1978, Belinda Harlowe in The Far Pavilions opposite Ben Cross and Rupert Everett in 1984, and the Lynda La Plante series Trial & Retribution in 1999.

In 2017 she played the aged Queen Elizabeth I in the docu-drama Elizabeth I.
Felicity's stage work is very extensive. In 1982 she auditioned for the Royal Shakespeare Company and originated the role of Annie in Good by C. P. Taylor. This production transferred to London's West End and then to Broadway. Douglas Watt from the Daily News said "the performance and mounting of the work are flawless... in an eventually moving piece of theatre one of its assets is the fine work by Felicity Dean as mistress Anne". Walter Kerr of The New York Times offered that "Felicity Dean is excellent in the role". While Jack Knoll of Newsweek said " The cast are excellent, notably Felicity Dean as the nubile student who becomes Halders mistress"
Other stage work includes An Honourable Trade directed by Mike Bradwell for The Royal Court, Olivia in Twelfth Night for Nancy Meckler, for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Bianca in The Taming of the Shrew directed by Jonathan Miller, Julietta in Hyde Park, and Caroline in The Churchill Play, both for Barry Kyle.
