Life Lessons: How Dale Critchlow ended up in Napoleon Dynamite

Life Lessons

Life is hard, stressful, fast-paced and can sometimes be overwhelming. That’s why is partnering with MorningStar Senior Living of Idaho Falls to bring you Life Lessons.

We usually ask MorningStar residents to share gems of wisdom every Tuesday with us. Some of their answers might make you laugh, some may make you cry, some may even change your life.

You may recognize Dale Critchlow is someone you’ve seen on Napoleon Dynamite. The 91-year-old Preston native appeared in the 2004 film and he sat down to tell us how he ended up with an acting role.

Dale also shared two life lessons he’s learned: it pays to be daring and help people if you can.

Watch our entire interview with Dale in the video player above.
