Dale was a gentle child, he constantly succumbed to bullying from others and so learned to defend himself and stand up for himself. Growing up in New Zealand without television until 1960, Dale became very fond of theater and amateur performances. His first performance was at a school concert at the age of 13. The boy made a big impression on the actor Shelley Berman. Alan's parents built their own amateur theater in Auckland called The Little Dolphin Theater. Alan also played rugby under 21, but left the sport to pursue an acting career. In New Zealand, roles were limited, or rather, they did not shoot many films, so Alan Dale had to work in several jobs: including a model, a car salesman and a realtor.
