Charles Dale was born in Tenby, Pembrokeshire in 1963. His father ran a record shop in Tenby and both his parents were keen amateur actors. After leaving school in 1979, he became an assistant stage manager (through a Youth Opportunity Scheme) at the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven, where he stayed for a year.
After occasional acting roles, he moved to London and trained at LAMDA.
He broke into television, when he appeared in Morgan’s Boy (1984) and also worked consistently for the English Shakespeare Company. His big break came when he appeared as the Chef in a television series The Lakes (1997). He appeared in a couple of West End shows and played Dennis in Coronation Street for eighteen months. He later appeared as Clive, in Paradise Heights (2002) for the BBC with Neil Morrissey and Ralf Little as well as its spin-off The Eustace Bros. (2003). Further roles emerged in ITV‘s Steel River Blues (2004) and a children’s series Barking! in 2004.
Since November 2007, Dale has portrayed a porter (later Emergency Care Assistant and then Healthcare Assistant), called Big Mac in the long-running BBC TV series Casualty. Having become an established character on the show, Charles has gone on to establish himself as one of the most loved actors on our screens today.
With vast experience on the after dinner speaking circuit too, Charles is a popular choice to provide humorous and inspiring talks on how to achieve in life and make yourself stand out from the crowd.
