Alan Dale

Alan Dale Headshot

Actor

Birth Date: May 6, 1947

Age: 76 years old

Birth Place: Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand

One of New Zealand's most prolific acting exports, Alan Dale has had two distinct phases of his career, with his 20th-century roles largely based in Australia and his 21st-century work predominantly in American productions. Dale rose to fame on Aussie television in the hugely popular soap opera "Neighbours" (Network Ten, 1985- ). Appearing on the show from its first season until 1993, he wasn't able to find satisfying roles Down Under after his long run ended, so he moved to the United States in 2000. Soon after arriving, Dale began landing parts in major productions, with a guest stint on the hit paranormal show "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002) and a supporting role in the sci-fi sequel "Star Trek: Nemesis" (2002), among others. Numerous recurring TV turns followed, but arguably none of Dale's roles were as memorable as his scheming character on the mysterious drama "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010).
