Alan Dale stars as Bradford Meade in ABC's "Ugly Betty." As President/CEO of Meade Publications and father of Daniel Meade, Bradford is a well-posed professional seeking the success of both his business and his son. In an attempt to keep his son from sleeping with another assistant, he insists Daniel hire the unattractive yet hard-working Betty.

Throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Alan Dale is best known for his role as Jim Robinson in the Australian television hit "Neigbours," and in the U.S. he has become popular with myriad outstanding roles.

Previously branded "the richest man in The O.C.," Dale starred as Caleb Nichol on the FOX series, consistently shifting between a cold, greedy business mogul and a loving, concerned husband and father. Alan Dale also recently had a guest starring role as Charles Widmore on "Lost," and appeared as Metcalfe in "E-Ring."



Dale created a stir during his recurring role as Director Tom Morrow on the action drama "NCIS." Along with his other power-driven roles, Dale has also appeared as Mitch Bryce, Secretary of Commerce on "The West Wing" and Vice President Jim Prescott on "24." Other notable television credits include "The X-Files, "ER" and "The Practice."

Dale has been seen on the big screen as Praetor Hiren, the zealous president of the Romulan Senate on "Star Trek: Nemesis." Later Dale was cast as Commander Preston in "Hollywood Homicide," starring Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett, and he was seen alongside Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek in "After the Sunset." Dale has also appeared in such films as "Space: Above and Beyond," "First Daughter" and "The Extreme Team." Most recently, he was seen in "Priest."

Dale also has extensive theater credits, has hosted his own radio shows and is a successful voice-over artist in both Australia and the United States.

When he's not busy working, Dale can choose to relax in his Los Angeles area home or his residence in New Zealand with his wife, former Miss Australia, Tracey Pearson.
